Oven baked zucchini chips

Has anyone successfully made these in the oven? (I don't have a dehydrator)

If so, did they turn out nice and crispy? I found a recipe and followed the exact instructions which said to slice them (but not too thin), coat with oil (making sure to not overcoat them), salt and bake them at 450 for 25-30 minutes.

Hers were beautiful and crispy. Mine were a limp and soggy mess

I was so excited about making them and they turned out awful. What a bummer!

Any suggestions?

I dunno if this would work with zucchini, but you could try putting them in a layer on a plate and sprinkling with a good layer of salt to draw out the moisture like you do with eggplant.

You just give them a good rinse before cooking.

I've never successfully baked them into a crispy state and I've tried many, many times with several different methods. I think they're just too wet. I've started adding a light coating of oil and doing them in a frying pan.

Do I need to salt eggplant before cooking it? | Cookthink
Thanks Kelly, maybe I will try that!

Thanks April. Do they get crispy in the frying pan?

Yes, but you have to be rather delicate with it and you have to eat them pretty quickly. They get soggy if they sit for any period of time. I usually "bread" them with a little Parmesan.

I have a dehydrator and never got them crispy. As soon as they cool it is like they suck moisture out of the air.

I have successfully dehydrated yellow squash, and they came out crispy. I would imagine zucchini isn't much more moist than yellow squash. Guess I ate them faster than they absorbed moisture. LOL I kept them in a ziplock on the counter for a few days at least and they were crispy treats.
