Homemade vs. Store bought mix for your chicken or whatever!


  1. Combine ingredients and store in a sealable container or zipper topped plastic bag. This will keep up to 4 months in the pantry, depending on the humidity (you may just want to keep it in the freezer). This recipe will also double or triple well.
  2. To Use: Preheat oven to 375°. Place one cup of mix in a plastic bag. In a bowl, mix an egg and 1/2 C skim milk.
  3. Dip chicken pieces one at a time in the milk mixture, then shake one at a time in the plastic bag.
  4. Place on a baking pan and bake for appropriate time (depending on the chicken you're using -as a little as 20 minutes or up to an hour for bigger, bone-in pieces).

This was excellent. I used seasoned bread crumbs and it is even better. Thanks

This is wonderful! It has a great flavor and I like using this instead of the boxed Shake and Bake because I can limit our salt. Plus it can be made with ingredients that I already have on hand. Thank you Bella Donna for posting!
