This zucchini chips recipe by Cooking With Kirby on YouTube shows how to make a healthy appetizer or snack in an air fryer. I love healthy snacks so these are great alternatives if I wanted something fried but not oily. They have a crispy outside with a soft inside. If you want something that is guilt-free and similar to fries, this is a great alternative. They look like fried pickles, but thicker and can you fill you up. Zucchini does a great job keeping calories low when you eat them without feeling heavy.
- 1 cup flour
- salt and pepper
- 2 eggs
- bread crumbs
- parmesan cheese
- cooking spray
First, prepare the zucchini chips by washing and dryer off the zucchini. Cut them into circles with a bit of a thickness. Then, have 3 separate bowls for the dredging process with flour, egg wash, and bread crumbs. Dip each zucchini circle in the flour, egg wash, and bread crumbs. Repeat the process until finished.
Next, preheat the air fryer to 375F. Once the air fryer is heated up, place the zucchini slices in and do not overcrowd them so it allows them to crispy. Spray each zucchini with cooking spray. Cook the zucchini chips for 4 minutes. Then, flip them over and spray them again and cook for another 4 minutes. Continue to watch Cooking With Kirby on YouTube for full instructions and details.
Overall, these zucchini chips are a low-carb snack and appetizer. Zucchini is a great alternative for those that are watching their carb intake. Dip them in any of your favorite dipping sauce. Finding new air fryer recipes is fun because I love my air fryer and it makes cooking easier and faster. I can’t wait to make them.
