Bake at 350 degrees in the oven or 325 degrees in convection oven.  Time: 20 minutes for side dish.

Flip zucchini after the 20 minutes above and bake another 10 minutes if serving as a soft chip or appetizer.

Ingredients:

2 medium zucchini

Directions:

Set up a breading station with a bowl for the milk, another for the cheese and the final bowl for the panko bread crumbs.

Rinse zucchini and slice and discard both ends of each squash.  Slice zucchini in 1/2″ rounds.  Dunk the squash into the milk each mixture, then coat with parmesan, then the panko.  Place the zucchini rounds on a parchment covered baking sheet or as an alternate, spray the baking sheet with PAM or use a silpat mat.  Bake for 20 minutes inn a pre heated oven.    Let the zucchini rest for 5 minutes after baking and then serve.
