My brother actually peaked my interest in these, as he's been tweaking a recipe but wasn't able to get them perfectly crunchy. These are a little time intensive in the oven, since we're using a low temperature to cook them, but they turn out nice and crunchy like a chip.
Tips to Perfect Baked Zucchini Chips
If your zucchini chips dont give you a good crunch, you may just need to leave them in a little longer, and make sure to really give them a good chance to dry off a bit before cooking.
Don't skip the "rest" time after slicing- it helps reduce extra moisture and allows the chip to crisp without the addition of much oil.
This recipe will get about 2 cups of zucchini chips. Feel free to add more or less zucchini, or modify oil.
I prefer just a touch of oil to help the salt and pepper stick to the chips- but you can skip it entirely, and just toss the zucchinis with seasonings if you'd like it to be lightly seasoned.
You can also add herbs de provence for a slight twist on this delicious chip!
