Homemade Shake n Bake

Someone was just asking for a Shake n Bake coating mix substitute. Here's one I came up with a few years ago that tastes very, very close to Kraft's Original Shake n Bake recipe. Haven't made it in so long that I almost forgot I even had it, guess what I'll be making tonight for old times sake. ;-)

I opt to use Panko bread crumbs because Panko makes the coating crispier than corn flakes or bread crumbs (you will find it in the Asian isle of your grocery store). I have also used garbanzo/chickpea flour in place of all purpose flour and it adds a nice very slight nutty flavor. The amount of ingredients listed here makes the exact amount as one Shake n Bake packet; enough to coat 6 to 8 pieces of bone in chicken. I know it's called Shake n "Bake" but more often than not, I fry with it rather than bake.

Ingredients:

  • 9 Tbsp. Panko crumbs, slightly crushed
  • 2 tsp. all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, or more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder, or more to taste

Directions:

Combine ingredients well in a small bowl and transfer to a large plastic storage bag.

If baking, preheat oven to 400 degrees; if frying, begin heating oil in a large skillet.

Place two pieces of very slightly moistened chicken in bag, shake until well coated, repeat until all pieces are coated and discard any remaining mixture including the bag. If planning to fry allow coating to set for ten minutes before cooking.

Bake in an ungreased baking dish until cooked through, about 35 to 45 minutes.

Fry until cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes each side.

I make my own version of Shake and Bake that works for chicken or pork chops, or veggies, such as zucchinis or eggplant, and its virtually free.

Ingredients:

  • leftover bread crumbs
  • leftover dry cereal bits
  • leftover croutons
  • leftover pretzels or chips

Steps:

  1. I save the bits and pieces of the leftover cereal that's in the bottom of the box, chips, pretzels, croutons, bread crumbs, or even crumble up the heels of a loaf of bread. I save all these in a 1/2 gallon jar.
  2. Once the jar is full, dump contents into a large ziplock bag. Smash it to further crumble.
  3. Dip your meat (pork chops or chicken), or eggplant or zucchini strips into either BBQ sauce or beaten egg/milk mixture, then into the crumbled mixture.
  4. Fry or bake your meat or veggies as normal.
