Baked Summer Squash Chips from Lemony Thyme

Have you ever made Baked Summer Squash Chips?  Last July when summer squash was in abundance at the Farmers’ Market, I couldn’t help but bring home my fair share after every visit.

Summer Squash

Experimenting with new ways to prepare this abundant summer favorite, I settled on a low and slow cooking method.  I couldn’t believe how crispy and light they became.  What a fabulous alternative to potato chips.  Simple.  Crispy.  Tasty.  And Healthy.
