Pan-Fried Zucchini Chips
Preheat oven to 175 degrees F. Place a wire rack inside a large rimmed baking sheet.Advertisement
Place flour and eggs in separate shallow bowls. Combine panko (or breadcrumbs), Parmesan and lemon zest in a third shallow bowl. Dredge zucchini slices in the flour, shaking off any excess. Next, dip the zucchini in the eggs, turning to coat. Then, dredge in the breadcrumb mixture.
Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add about one-fourth of the zucchini rounds. Cook, turning once, until browned and crispy, 1 to 2 minutes total. Transfer to the prepared rack and baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining zucchini, adding the remaining 1/4 cup oil halfway through. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
