Zucchini Sticks - 30 Days 30 Recipes - Day 29
This recipe is a keeper. While I don't think the flavor profile is quite perfect, it was a great way to serve zucchini. Sometimes when it comes to this summer vegetable, I resort to the same old same old. These zucchini sticks mixed it up just enough. I ate almost the entire recipe myself for lunch if that says anything! I do think that I would swap out the chili powder and use paprika like I did in the Parmesan Chicken Cutlets. I also would probably just coat them in 1 teaspoon of olive oil and not the egg. Just my two cents. Those small changes would probably make these just perfect.
