MAKE IT: Baked Chicken Breading (Shake n’ Bake inspired)


“Shake n Bake” is one of those childhood reminiscent ingredients. I can remember my mom letting me shake the bag as a child and thinking the chicken was great, especially since I helped. As I got older I replaced “Shake n Bake” with various versions if chicken coating, but never really thought to give it a homemade whirl.

Making homemade foods is a great way to avoid excess preservatives, sodium, sugars, and honestly saves a lot of money! Here is a great to know, classic recipe which can be made ahead of time and stored for 3 months!
