I’ve been sharing a lot of homemade versions of things you would normally buy in the grocery store. Today I’m sharing a homemade version of “shake and bake”. This recipe makes enough for 3 different meals so you can store the unused mix in the cabinet. I store mine in a plastic container with a lid but you can use a plastic bag or even a canning jar if you like.
1 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (you can use panko for extra crispy)
1/4 teaspoon onion salt
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Black pepper to taste
To use, put some mix in a shallow bowl. Moisten chicken or pork with water, shaking the excess off. Coat the meat in the mix and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Cook in a preheated oven at 425 degrees until cooked, approximately 25 minutes. Be sure to throw away any mix that is left in the bowl. Do not put it back into the storage container with the other mix.
We like to serve this with a side of noodles or au gratin potatoes and veggies. Home canned applesauce is a must with the pork!
