Homemade Shake and Bake.....

Remember the old Kraft Shake and Bake from 1965? Back in the 60's, that was all the rage. It was quick and easy and the homemakers fell in love with this baked chicken that tasted like fried chicken. No more standing at the stove frying chicken and getting grease spatters all over. This is a homemade version of   Shake and Bake. As you can see, it is simple and uses herbs and spices you would already have in your kitchen. This is one of those recipes that you can swap out ingredients for some others you might prefer. For instance, I like granulated garlic, cayenne and grated Parmesan cheese when I make it. So take this recipe and make it your own and enjoy some really nice oven baked chicken. 

Shake and Bake
1 cup dry bread crumbs or Panko
1 cup of corn flakes, crushed
2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoons celery salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon minced onion
1/2 pinch dried basil leaves
1/2 pinch dried parsley
1/2 pinch dried oregano
In a large resealable plastic bag combine the crumbs, oil, salt, paprika, celery salt, pepper, garlic salt, minced garlic, minced onion, basil, parsley and oregano. Seal bag and shake all ingredients together, Add chicken pieces to bag and thoroughly coat the pieces. Put on sheet pan with sides. Preheat oven to 400F and bake uncovered for 25 min. skin side down. Turn skin side up, reduce heat to 350F and bake chicken till it is tender, 30−35 minutes.
Till next time.......
