Sharing is caring!

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.

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


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk one egg (you might end up needing two, but start off with one).

  4. 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).

  5. Take a zucchini slice, coat with the egg mixture by dipping it in.

  6. Take the egg coated zucchini slice and press each side down face first into the homemade shake and bake mixture.

  7. Place coated zucchini slice on baking sheet. Repeat steps 5-7 for remaining zucchini slices.

  8. Bake for 30 minutes, or until zucchini chips are crispy.

Recipe Notes

  • 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
