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.
