Baked Zucchini Chips

We had these yummy and healthy chips with Avocado / Salami Grilled Cheese tonight - super good!!  They do take a little while to cook, so prep ahead of time....and they shrink a TON! so be kind on the seasoning....I think they taste a lot like pumpkin seeds :)


Ingredients:1 zucchini, sliced into thin medallions (thickness of a quarter)
Cooking spray
Seasonings: I used garlic salt / paprika

Preheat oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil, and spray with canola oil.  Set aside.

Lay out slices on prepared baking sheet, and spray tops lightly with additional cooking spray.  Sprinkle with seasonings of your choice. (A note on seasoning, however - use LESS than what seems appropriate.  These shrink considerably in the oven, and if you use too much it gets very concentrated.  It's better to end up underseasoning and add more later.)

Place in preheated oven and bake 45 minutes.  Rotate baking sheet, and bake an additional 30-50 minutes, until chips are browned and crisped to your liking.  These are best eaten within a couple hours of removing from the oven, as they start to get chewy if left out.
