Servings 4 servings


  • Mandoline


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for the racks
  • 2 medium zucchini sliced into ⅛ inch thick rounds
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese plus more for topping
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with foil then place wire racks in each one. Lightly coat the wire racks with olive oil.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk together the flour and 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • In another shallow bowl, whisk the eggs until fully scrambled.
  • In a third shallow bowl, whisk together the panko, 1 teaspoon of salt, basil, oregano, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  • Working in batches, coat the zucchini rounds in the flour. Shake off excess flour.
  • Next, coat the floured zucchini rounds in the egg wash. Again, shake off the excess.
  • Then, toss the zucchini in the panko mixture. Press on the breading to help it stick. Place the zucchini in an even layer on the baking racks.
  • Lightly drizzle the olive oil over the zucchini.
  • Bake for 12 minutes. Flip and bake another 10 to 12 minutes or until they are crispy and golden brown. (See note)
  • Top with more freshly grated parmesan and serve with marinara, ranch, garlic aioli, or any dipping sauce you like.


Note: If you need to place the baking sheets on two different oven racks, rotate the baking sheets after flipping the zucchini chips over. This will help promote more even baking.
