    Breaded, oven-fried zucchini chips taste like they're fried, yet they are baked and amazingly crispy. These chips make a healthy substitute for French fries or potato chips.

Not all chips have to be unhealthy and fat-laden. Zucchinis are more nutritious than potatoes, which are usually used for chips. Baking the zucchini cuts back on fat that is needed for frying.
