Recipe Box, Golden Zucchini Chips

I recently had Zucca Chips at North Italia,

an upscale Italian restaurant chain,

and let me warn you, they are addicting!

I wanted to see if I could recreate them

I found many recipe versions on Pinterest,

some fried and some baked…

The fried versions sounded pretty labor intensive

so I opted for a healthier, simpler baked version

First slice zucchini,

you want thin slices, but thick enough not to be too flimsy,

about 1/8″

Place the slices on a parchment paper lined baking sheet

Season with garlic salt and pepper

I used Trader Joe’s Garlic Salt

with sea salt, roasted garlic, onion, and parsley

Then top the slices with a generous spoon of Parmesan cheese

Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes until golden

Serve them up and enjoy!

    I’ve been waiting for this recipe Jenna! These were so delicious at North I can’t wait to try them. I just need to add zucchini to my farmer’s market shopping list. Thanks for doing this………

    • Thanks Emily! The zucca chips at North are fried, but all the fried versions I found required dipping each slice into egg and then a batter and I thought that was entirely too much trouble. This baked version is so easy, and less mess. I loved them and they’re delicious reheated too!

        I am all for shortcuts, especially when baked rather than fried. This is a great easy recipe!

    Jenna, I have lots of extra zucchini right now. My family loves it fried, but it is such a mess to make it that way. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’m definitely going to try it. I saw the painting you did of Pam’s hydrangeas on her post today. It is gorgeous! You have such a gift. Happy Thursday!

    • Thanks so much Shannon, I really wanted to fry it, but it seemed like so much trouble I went the easy route…I am making more this weekend for apps. Pam’s photos always inspire paintings, her garden is so beautiful! Have a great weekend!

  12. Nancy says:

    Thank you Jenna!
    Enjoy your weekend!

    I’m going to have to try zucchini chips again. I like them but haven’t had much luck making them so maybe your instructions will help.

  14. Pattie says:

    These look amazing! I love zucchini anyway, but turning them into a delicious Parmesan-topped chips sounds like something I definitely need to do. I am with you when it comes to baking over frying. I just don’t want to deal with the mess.

    Oh my gosh! I do this exact dish but in a frying pan with a bit of butter and olive oil and if I have yellow squash I cut them up to and cook them al dante and then put a handful of parmesan cheese over all and lower the heat to almost off and put the cover on so the cheese melts and it is WONDERFUI ! I will have to try your baked version! YUM! And YUM! 😋 ( great minds think alike, hehe) 😉

  16. Parmesan topped chips, now that is my husband’s idea of eating his vegetables. 😊 They certainly do look great.
