This healthy Air Fryer Zucchini recipe features sliced zucchini chips breaded in a crispy-crunchy Panko mixture, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning! Serve as a healthy side dish, as an appetizer to kick off any summer gathering, or as a snack.
Have ready three shallow bowls or trays for a dredging station. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F for 10 minutes.
In the first tray, whisk together the flour, 1 teaspoon salt, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and pepper. In the second tray, whisk together the eggs with 2 tablespoons of water. In the third tray, mix together the panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
Fully coat each zucchini slice in the seasoned flour and shake off the excess. Submerge in the egg mixture, allow excess to drip off, and then transfer to the tray of panko. Coat thoroughly with the panko, applying gentle pressure as needed to ensure the coating adheres. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet.
Once you have all of the zucchini slices coated, transfer them to a large, rimmed baking sheet and mist the tops and sides with the nonstick cooking spray. Flip each zucchini, and mist the other side.
Add a single layer of zucchini to the basket of the air fryer and cook at 400°F for 6-7 minutes. Remove the zucchini chips, and repeat with the remaining zucchini.
