I hate zucchini. I will literally only eat it if it’s shredded and put into a cookie, like Coconut Oil Double Chocolate Zucchini Cookies. So, while staying at a friend’s house, my friend’s mom made breaded zucchini chips and asked if I wanted any. I just sort of looked at them and was like oh, what the heck. They’re breaded in carbs so maybe they will taste better. Well, wasn’t I pleasantly surprised! These have become one of my favorite side dishes and I even make them now when I want a healthier snack. These breaded zucchini chips are great by themselves, or my favorite way to serve them, is over a hot plate of spaghetti with marinara sauce.

At the top, a bowl of lightly mixed eggs, a bowl of homemade bread crumbs, and a container of raw zucchini slices sit on a countertop. At the bottom, the finished breaded zucchini chips sit on an aluminum foil covered baking sheet.

These breaded zucchini chips go great with a lot of different dishes, especially those that are pasta based. I like to serve these over a plate of spaghetti with marinara sauce.

  • 2 zucchinis, sliced 1/4″ thin
  • 1/2-1 cup homemade shake and bake
  • 1-2 eggs


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • In a small bowl, whisk one egg (you might end up needing two, but start off with one).
  • In a another small bowl, measure out 1/2 cup bread crumbs (you might end up needing more, but I would start with 1/2 cup).
  • Take a zucchini slice, coat with the egg mixture by dipping it in.
  • Take the egg coated zucchini slice and press each side down face first into the homemade shake and bake mixture.
  • Place coated zucchini slice on baking sheet. Repeat steps 5-7 for remaining zucchini slices.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until zucchini chips are crispy.


  • For even crispier slices, I like to turn the oven off after 30 minutes and then leave the zucchini slices in the oven for another hour.
  • To speed things along, you can place multiple zucchini slices into the egg mixture, and then only press one side into the bread crumb mixture
