  • 4-6 yellow squash small or medium, sliced into 1/4" thick coins
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup panko style bread crumbs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • non stick cooking spray


  • Line several baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  • Add the sliced squash to a large bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and toss to evenly coat. Salt & pepper the squash, to taste.
  • In another large bowl, add the bread crumbs, cheese, and spices. Toss them to evenly combine.
  • Working one at a time, dip each slice of squash into the cheese crumb coating-- use your fingers to gently press the coating onto both sides to ensure it sticks.
  • As they're coated, transfer the squash chips to a prepared baking sheet. Moving onto another when the previous one is full until all the squash is prepared.
  • Lightly spray the tops of the chips with non stick cooking spray. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the baking tray(s) from the oven. Use a fork or tongs to flip each slice over. Lightly spray the chips again with non stick cooking spray.
  • Return the chips to the oven for an additional 8-10 minutes. Remove the cooked chips from the oven. Let them rest for 1-2 minutes, before transferring to a plate and serving. Repeat as necessary until all the chips are cooked.
