Salt and Pepper Zucchini Chips Oh MY Goodness..

These are SO good.  Full of flavors, slightly spicy.  Amazing.

The ONLY downside.. the serving is so small.  Seriously, you have no idea how small that 1 1b of zucchini is going to get.  And you are not going to want to share.. lol.  Basically this recipes makes one nice sized serving for one person.. yep one.  But I am marking it 1-2 servings.

Couple of notes.

1. These have a nice peppery taste. If you are a big fan of salt and pepper chips you could even add more.  But be careful since they shrink down so much, a little goes a long way.
2. The olive oil is super yummy on them, but it’s greasy.  I did not actually try them with out the oil, but my guess is that they would be fine.
3. * You need to slice these VERY thin.  The tried a second batch on my mandoline slicer on the thicker blade.  I loved that it took less time to slice and took up less room in the dehydrator, meaning I could fit more in.  But those suckers would not get crisp.  They were in there about 10 hours and still were chewy.  So that did not work.

4. You can do these in the oven instead of a dehydratorHere are directions for that.

  4. Toss with the “dressing” to coat.
  5. Arrange slices on dehydrator trays

  2. Maggie Miller says:

    They look delicious!

  3. I also did these in a dehydrator but then popped them under my broiler for a very short period (stand there and watch them) to get a nice crisp on them, loved them!

  4. frugal jen says:

    that was a great idea!

  5. What degree for the oven, and how long in oven? I grow my own zucchini and always looking for a way to use them. Thanks.

  23. Going to have to try this sometime, sounds so good, thanks.

  24. I’m going to try these. I know what you mean about the serving size. Squash has so much water it tends to cook down fast.

  25. Donna Yost says:

    TheItMom.Com sent me

  26. I’ve never had zucchini chips before. They sound kind of good.

  44. Peggy Greco says:

    These look so tasty and will try to make zucchini chips sometimes.

  45. I use TopChip trays in the microwave so they are done in a few minutes. Also, if you don’t want all the oil but want the flavor you can use the olive oil flavored ‘Pam’ spray.

  46. Thanks for the recipe! I stumbled across it on pinterest and decided to make it They turned out absolutely delicious. I baked them in the oven for about 30 minutes I think. It was a genius idea to make this. I really enjoyed it. Thanks so much!

  47. Neurismar says:

    I love Zucchini Chips. This looks amazing tasty I could eat with my eyes!!! Great job!!!

  48. How does storage work for these? Like how long can they be stored? And in pantry or fridge?

  49. jlpenner says:

    I have made other dried fruits and veggies, and I just put them into ziplocks. Not sure how long you could store.

  50. delicious! I have made these myself.

  51. gaby ritz says:

    delicious!!! and healthy…………but never enough

  52. lol.. I agree!!

  53. How long and what temp if done in the oven?

  54. you will have to check the link to the oven baked recipe.. since I have not tried it that way :)

  55. I assume that you have a lot more education or college
    you manage to acres articles so complex.

  56. Debbie Anderson says:

    I canned about 40 pints of sliced zucchini this summer for frying and about 8 pints of shredded zucchini for making bread. One of the stores had them on sale at 3 for .99 cents. I saw in there ad that they are back on for that price. How long would these last if they were vacuumed in jars or bags?

  57. do you think the vinegar can be omitted?

  58. sure.. it just gives a bit of “tanginess”

  59. I have to try these, I did the kale one…pretty good. Thx

  60. Love it!! Oh my gosh I need to start dehydrating foods. These are gorgeous and sound amazing.

  61. G’day Thx for stopping by and sharing this at our #SayGdayParty Pinned
