My take on Shake and Bake

I am a huge fan of food network.
 I frequently watch Semi- Homemade with Sandra Lee. I have found that a lot of store bought things can be made just as simply as buying them or adding to them to make them even better.
This is my version of shake and bake. I haven't done the math exactly but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that these ingredients will last more than 2 meals like a single box of shake and bake.
I started with these few things....
chicken breasts
Italian style bread crumbs
Zatarain's Creole Seasoning to add little spice
and some black pepper
Later I ended up using some Parmesan Cheese as well.
Put about a cup of bread crumbs into a shallow dish, then add some seasonings to your taste.
Everyone is different and this isn't a hard and true recipe so you can adapt it to however you like.

I mixed the seasonings a little then place each piece of chicken
separately to coat with crumbs and seasoning.

I placed each piece onto a nonstick baking sheet.
I used the cookie sheet from my Green Pan set.
I thought the chicken needed a little extra something so I put a little Parmesan Cheese 
on each piece as well.
Baked at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. 
Or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Always be safe and make sure it's done!
I served this yummy chicken with a salad and
twice baked potato casserole.
(will post recipe for that soon)



  1. Looks so yummy! I can't wait to get your twice baked potato recipe!

    1. I will get it posted as soon as I make it again. Maybe this weekend.

  2. I always have a hard time finding Shake and Bake in my local stores, so this recipe will come in handy! Thanks. =)
