    Dropbear's Note:

    From Top Secret Recipes "This recipe is practically identical to the one Kraft uses for their Shake'n Bake bread coating. The only difference you'll find is that the real Shake'n Bake contains beet powder - a hard to find ingredient that gives the mix a dark orange tint. It doesn't do much for the flavor however, so it's been left out of the recipe. Try it and you'll swear it's the same thing."

      Nice and crunchy, had just enough coating for 4 large bone-in skin-on chicken thighs. Growing up, whenever we had chicken it was Shake 'n Bake, so I vowed never to buy a box of overpriced spices and crumbs. With this recipe I kept my vow but also enjoyed this great weeknight. I used Kellogg's cornflake crumbs so I could be sure how fine or coarse the crumb should be (1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. is 2.5 oz. or 70 g, in case I plan to pulverize corn flakes myself). For my first time, I dipped the chicken in water, then pressed the chicken against the crumb mixture in a plastic bag to apply as much coating as possible. After over 45 years, I cannot say whether this tasted just like Shake 'n Bake, although I suspect it would taste closer had I dipped the chicken in vegetable oil instead of water. We eat a LOT of chicken, so I am happy to add this to my bag of tricks. Served with Caribbean Yellow Rice and steamed broccoli. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag, QI = all-purpose flour.

      I love this recipe! After I made it as the recipe stated and it is good just the way it is, my son wanted different other spices so I added those into the mix also. That really kicked it up a notch and my whole family loved it even more! Instead of buying crumbs I took a whole box of corn flakes and grounded them in my food processor and now have a container of crumbs ready to go. Thanks for posting this great recipe!

      Trying this recipe out tonight. One thing I didn't see mentioned is how much to use per piece (as it stated 'per the box'.. But I didn't have the box. lol I did do up the mix as stated, however I added 1/8th tsp gr. blk pepper. (personal pref.) I ended up coating 6 drums/thighs bone in with about 1/3 cup of the mix. (Had a bit left over that would probably cover sparingly two more small chicken pieces.) Will rate after we try it. Update: After trying this Recipe, it gets 5 stars. I have a picky meat eater in the family and even he wanted seconds! A keeper for this house!
