Shake and Bake

Click to Print This Recipe

  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 cups dry bread crumbs or cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons each garlic powder and onion powder
  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup oil

You need a pretty big bowl to mix this in. A clean dry dish pan will do the trick too. Measure everything into the bowl one at a time. The last step is dribbling in the oil. Mix it all up with your hands or a fork. This makes about 9 cups of mix. Store it in a large coffee can, or a canister with a good lid.

To cook chicken or pork chops:

  • 1/2 cup home made shake and bake mix
  • 3 pounds of cut up chicken (leg quarters are fine) or 2 pounds of bone-in pork chops.

Put your home made shake and bake into an empty bread bag. If the bag is very long, you can trim off a few inches from the top. Add the chicken or pork chops, one or two at a time, and shake the bag, to coat the meat. Arrange the coated meat on a large cookie sheet or baking pan. When it is all coated, bake the meat at 400 for about 45 minutes. Boneless meat cooks in 30 minutes. Regular meat though usually takes 45 to 50 minutes. I usually use chicken leg quarters cut into separate thigh and leg pieces. This stuff is so good, you will find yourself making it at least once a week.
