I've tried many recipes for the homemade version. This one comes the closest to what my taste buds like.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients in food processor and whirl until blended.
  2. Store in refrigerator.
  3. When ready to use, dip chicken pieces in 1/2 cup of evaporated milk and then coat with Shake-n-Bake mixture.
  4. Place chicken in shallow pan, skin side up.
  5. Bake in 375°F oven for 30 minutes.
  6. After 30 minutes spray chicken with a light misting of oil (Pam or generic brand will do).
  7. Return to oven and bake about 20 minutes longer or until juices run clear.
  8. NOTE: If using boneless breasts they won't take as long to cook as thighs or legs.

Thanks for posting- this will save me from buying so many boxes of Shake N Bake at the store! :)

I have never bought the real thing, but we love it. I used it in a casserole that called for coating chicken in Shake n Bake. Loved the flavor. Thanks for the good Idea!

5 Star for a doityourself shake n bake. I have to admit that I kind of throw the stuff into the bag and I may not have had every ingredient - but boy, did it come out tasty!!! The whole family LOVED it! I am keeping this one for sure and will try it on some other meats besides chicken at some point. I did, however, add more paprika though. I had celery salt and added that. Great texture.
