Wholesome Wednesday (Zucchini Chips)

First, let me apologize for neglecting the blog the last few days.  I have been trying to recover from an awful sinus and ear infection.  Now onto the topic at hand, zucchini chips. 

I love zucchini any which way, but not everyone feels the same.  In my house, I typically can get my husband to eat it sauteed or fried.  So here is an easy way to "fry" zucchini, without the fat and calories.   The ingredients are probably already in your pantry and is a wonderful side dish to any meal.

recipe (4 servings)

2 medium zucchinis
1/4 c. skim milk
1/2 c. seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Take a cooling rack and fit it on top of a cookie sheet then spray with non-stick spray.  Then slice zucchini in about 1/4 inch slices.  Place milk in small bowl and in another bowl, combine bread crumbs and cheese.  Dip the zucchini slices into the milk and coat in bread crumb mixture.  Place onto cookie sheet and bake in oven for 15 to 18 minutes.  The zucchini should be golden brown and tender, but not mushy.  Serve with your favorite marina sauce as a dipper.

These would also be a good appetizer course to any meal or party!
