I  love my air fryer. I use it for everything now. If you haven’t used an air fryer yet to heat up your kiddos’ frozen chicken nuggets or even just a cold slice of pizza, you are missing out! Reheating things in an oven or toaster is OK, but in the air fryer they taste so fresh, crispy and delicious – game changer!

I also try some real air fryer recipes once in while by the way, and this air-fried zucchini chips recipe is one of them!

How to Make Air-Fried Zucchini Chips:

(Scroll down for quantities)

 Think of this recipe in three sections: 

  1. Basic prep. You’ll start by cutting the zucchini into thin round slices and mixing up the crispy topping. Try to make zucchini rounds equal so they all cook evenly.  Then you whisk the egg, salt and pepper together. 
  2. Dredging. This part can get a little messy! Dunk each zucchini slice in the egg mixture, then toss it in the  panko mixture. Coat both sides evenly, place it in the greased air fryer basket. Repeat with the remaining zucchini slices! 
  3. Air Frying! Drizzle the zucchini chips with cooking spray and cook until they’re golden brown and crisp for about 5 minutes at 350 F.
