I love this recipe!!! A little coating mixture goes a long way so I found that I had a ton left over the first time I made it. I've started substituing garlic powder and baking powder for the real thing. Now I only pour what I need into a bag for shaking and I keep the rest in a separate bag in the refrigerator. It stays fresh and ready for me to use for months and makes cooking a breeze!!!


My hubby loves shake and bake and said "tastes just like shake n bake, only better". Great kid food too. Tender, moist, no trans fats here folks. I cut the recipe in half and used approx 1/2 of that on a cut up whole chicken. I sprinkled the chicken with H20 b4 shaking, and sprayed the cooking sheet with oil. At 400 degrees whole pieces of chicken take about 40 minutes in my oven, boneless pieces about 20 minutes.

I'm nuts too...

I am more than thrilled that I found this recipe! My husband is a shake & bake freak (not to mention my baby has an egg allergy), and as I like fried foods, I'm NO good at doing it...at all! Well, this recipe is just as good, if not better than store bought, the chicken was very tender. I took another reviewers advise & cut the salt in 1/2 (because of the celery & garlic salts) but next time I will use the correct amount of salt & cut the celery salt in 1/2. Thanks so much Sara, for the recipe & saving me some cash!
