Homemade Shake 'n Bake (Shake and Bake Mix) Recipe

    Today I am going to show you how to make a delicious coating mix for your chicken or pork.  It is basically a homemade version of the popular "Shake 'n Bake" you can find at your local store.  Lately the cost of even the generic brands has increased to nearly $3 a box locally so I wanted to make my own that would not only be cheaper but free of the preservatives and other "icky" things.  This is what I came up with and let me tell you IT IS DELICIOUS!!!!


     This recipe makes enough to equal 4 boxes of the bought stuff so use what you want and store the rest in a mason jar in the refrigerator.  It can last about a month in the fridge or store it in the freezer for several months.

Homemade Shake and Bake Mix

4 c. bread crumbs (1 box of Panko)
1/4 c. olive oil
1 T. paprika
1  1/2 tsp. seasoning salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. salt

   Place all into a mason jar and shake well.  Use as you would the "box" variety.  I just take a cup of it and put it in a large baggie and place a piece of meat into the baggie and shake well.

Coated and ready to go into the oven.

    This time I used pork chops.  Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for about 17 minutes.  That little bit of oil added to the mix makes the meat come out with a super delicious crispy outside.


  When cooking chicken I cook the coated chicken in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes for boneless chicken and 45 minutes for bone-in chicken.  Be sure to check the internal temperature of whatever meat you are cooking to be sure it is cooked thoroughly.
