Dry Mixes: Shake ‘n’ Bake

Sage Shake ‘n’ Bake for Pork

5 cups bread crumbs (I got the giant box of Panko Bread Crumbs at Costco)
5 cups white flour
1/2 cup dried onion
2 1/2 tsp sea salt
2 1/2 tsp black pepper
2 1/2 tsp ground sage

Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Shake well before using.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Use 1 cup of mix per 4 pork chops. I shake the pork chops and mix together in a bag.
Cover in a greased baking dish.
Bake for 40 minutes
Uncover and bake for 15 minutes.

Shake ‘n’ Bake for Chicken

3 cups white flour
2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 cups bread crumbs
2 Tbsp parsley
2 tsp garlic powder
2 Tabsp taco seasoning (you may have made that earlier this week)
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano

Use 1 cup of seasoning per recipe.

A couple of recipes I have used:

Shake ‘n’ Bake Chicken Thighs

You will need 4 chicken legs with backs attached.

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
  2. Put 1 cup of seasoning into a bag (large ziploc or a freezer bag). Add chicken parts in a bag and shake until well coated.
  3. Melt butter/margarine in a 9×13 inch baking dish in the preheated oven. Place chicken in the baking dish skin side down and bake for 20 minutes. Turn pieces and bake another 25 minutes until tender and juices run clear.

Shake n Bake Chicken Breasts

 You will need 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts:
Preheat oven to 400F. Dump one cup of shake n bake mix in a large ziploc bag or freezer bag. Rinse chicken in cold running water. Let excess water drain off. Place chicken, one piece at a time, in the bag with the shake n bake. Seal and shake the bag so that the chicken is totally coated in the breading. Remove the chicken from the bag, shaking off excess breading. Place on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Do this with the remaining chicken.

Boneless chicken – Bake for 20 minutes

***I think that next time I make these recipes I am going to cut back the flour a bit and replace it with more bread crumbs. I have seen some recipes with no flour in them and I think I may like that better, although these recipes are delicious just as they are.
