Homemade Shake and Bake Mix

homemade shake n bake mix

As a kid I loved when my mom would cook chicken with shake and bake. I loved the taste and thought it was fun watching her shake the chicken in the bag with the mix.

Fast forward 20+ years…ahem…and I find that I like using shake n bake to cook for my family. My only problem is that I never seem to remember to keep it stocked in my pantry.

Case in point, a few weeks ago I was trying to come up with a way to jazz up some pork chops. Shake n Bake popped into my head, but I didn’t have the  mix and didn’t want to go to the grocery store. So…I looked up a homemade version online and found a great recipe from The Black Peppercorn. I’ve changed it up quite a bit.

I was excited to have everything in my pantry and just took a few minutes together and was a great way to dress up the pork chops.

Do you have a favorite memory of your mom making a favorite dish? Share in the comments, I would love to hear.

Enjoy!

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • ½ cup Italian bread crumbs
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ⅛ tsp paprika
  • 1/16 tsp celery salt
  • ⅛ cup vegetable oil
  • 4 pork chops or chicken breasts
Instructions
  1. In a medium-sized bowl mix all the dry ingredients.
  2. Add the vegetable oil to the dry mix and mix well.
  3. Either use your bowl to dip your chicken/pork chops in or place the mixture on a plate.
  4. Coat your chicken/pork chops with the mixture.
  5. After thoroughly coating your meat, place on a cookie sheet and bake according to what you are cooking. I like to cook chicken at 350 degrees and pork at 325 degrees. Make sure there is no pink in the middle.
