Make Shake 'N Bake

I LOVE Kraft's Shake 'N Bake. It is easy, Fun to do but Truth is I think I have used it a handful of times. The reason why I don't use it because it is just to expensive. So there is a way to get AWAY from the Boxed foods and Make it Yourself!
There are a few ways you can substitute Shake 'N Bake. 

Keep in mind with these recipes you can substitute "Crackers" with anything Crunchy, Such as; Corn Flakes, Doritos, Potato Chips, Gold Fish, Cheeze-It (any Flavor)

#1. Is Italian Bread Crumbs.

#2. Original Chicken
  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 cups finely crushed saltine crackers
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. paprika
Same Baking instructions as below. 

#3. Cheeze-It/ Gold Fish Mix

  • 4 cups Flour
  • 4 cups Crushed Cheeze-It/ Gold Fish Crackers
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 TBSP Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Onion Powder
  • 1 tbsp. pepper
  • 3 tbsp. Paprika
#4 My Favorite
       -Italian Parmesan Chicken

  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Packet dry Italian seasoning
             =  AMAZING! Happy Making!

Mix all ingredients together. This is going to be a large batch so it lasts a long time. Store in an air tight container. Container is better so it lessons the Spills. 

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
-Place 1 cup Homemade Shake and Bake Coating Mix in a shallow bowl. When placed in bowl Drizzle vegetable oil over mixture and mix in. (oil optional)

-Rinse chicken/fish/pork pat dry. 
-Dip chicken/fish/pork into beaten egg, buttermilk, milk, or salad dressing to coat, then dip into Homemade Shake and Bake Coating Mix.
- #4 only needs to be washed with water and dipped into mixture.

-Place on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees. Bake 20-30 minutes for boneless chicken/fish/pork strips. 
-Bake 30-50 mins for bone-in chicken pieces or until meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. 

Enjoy! Experiment. No kids or husband likes a boring "same old" dinner! Spice it up!!!!
