Ingredients

  • ½ lb zucchini sliced into thin, ⅛” thick slices
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt plus more to taste, as needed
  • ¼ teaspoon Freshly cracked black pepper
  • ⅛-¼ teaspoon Smoked paprika optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 225F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Slice your zucchini and thoroughly pat slices dry with paper towel.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, salt, black pepper, and paprika, if using.
  4. Toss zucchini slices in olive oil and stir until all slices are coated with olive oil.
  5. Transfer zucchini slices to prepared cookie sheets. Be sure to space evenly over baking sheet so that no slices are overlapping.
  6. Transfer both baking sheets to 225F oven and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 2 hours. Once your slices have been baking 1 hour and 15 minutes, be sure to check them every 10 minutes so they do not burn. Zucchini chips will be golden brown and crisp when finished.

Recipe Notes

If your oven does not bake evenly, rotate your two pans halfway through baking.
