Have some extra zucchini in the fridge? These baked zucchini fries are the perfect way to use them up without too much grease since they’re oven-baked to crisp perfection. Plus, the garlic chipotle aioli serves as the perfect dipping sauce for these – making them to be a fun savory snack or light appetizer right before dinner.


Serves: 2

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 18 minutes


  • 2 zucchinis, cut into 4-inch sticks
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Italian-style bread crumbs

For the chipotle garlic aioli:

  • 2 teaspoons chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a cooling rack with nonstick spray and place on baking sheet. Set aside.

2. Working one at a time, dredge zucchini in flour, dip into eggs, then dredge in bread crumbs, pressing to coat. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 15-18 minutes.

3. While the zucchini is baking, make the aioli: combine chipotle peppers, mayonnaise, Greek yogurt and garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.
