Crispy on the outside and moist and tender inside, if desired you may marinate the breasts in the BBQ sauce for up to 8 hours, for a little heat add in a pinch or more of cayenne to the dry coating mixture or the barbecue sauce :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Set oven rack to lowest position.
  3. Grease a 15 x 10-inch baking sheet.
  4. In a small bowl combine the BBQ sauce with Dijon mustard until well combined.
  5. In a shallow dish combine the Shake N' Bake coating mix with dry breadcrumbs, garlic powder, seasoned salt and black pepper.
  6. Using a pastry brush coat the BBQ sauce mixture liberally all over the chicken breasts (using up all the BBQ sauce).
  7. Coat the breast into the crumb mixture on both sides (discard any remaining crumb mixture).
  8. Place in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  9. Bake for about 25 minutes (baking time for regular size breasts should not take more than 25 minutes or they will become dry, for exta large thick breasts allow 5 minutes more cooking time).

Really enjoyed this recipe. I'm not crazy about Dijon so I substituted Deli mustard instead. Thanks for sharing another great recipe.

Looking for a comfort food Saturday dinner that to feed the kid in me but still managed to appeal to my adult tastes and this worked perfectly. I used a mesquite barbeque sauce with a good kick and used Shake and Bake Mix to prepare my own Shake and Bake mix. I noticed on my chicken the breadcrumbs did not adhere as well to the chicken and next time might do two parts S&B to one part breadcrumbs. The spice additions to the coating were great. Also found that a bit of cooking spray gave the coating a great crisp. Thanks Kitz!

So easy and tasty. Gives an American classic a nice kick. My 3-year-old ate it up! I served corn-on-the-cob with this chicken.
