Zucchini Chips for 1 Weight Watcher point





I'm not a big veggie girl.  When I eat them, they must be Flavorful.  I'm not sure if my bread crumbs were stale or what, but these are worth another try with some fresh crumbs and maybe even some garlic powder/salt.  At one point per serving, who can complain though! Gets in those veggies and fills your belly.  

One tip I learned while on the NutriSystem plan, to get a nice crisp or browning effect on oven-baked goods, lightly spray the tops of the items you are baking with some cooking spray.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 large zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices
3 large egg whites, lightly beaten
Cooking spray


Instructions:  Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Sprinkle sliced zucchini with salt and pepper.  Dip zucchini into egg whites and then dredge in breadcrumbs, pressing firmly to coat.  Place zucchini slices on a baking sheet covered with cooking spray (and lightly spray the tops of all if you want crisping/browning). Bake at 475 degrees for 10 minutes or until browned. Serve immediately.

Yields: 4 servings (approximately 7 chips)
Points: 1 point
