Homemade Shake and Bake

Hey guys! Hope you are having a great week! When I went to the store a couple of days ago, I was planning on making a chicken, broccoli, and rice casserole with all real ingredients, i.e. homemade cream of … soup. Tonight just did not seem like a casserole kind of night, so I put my plan in a new direction. One of my most popular posts is my oven baked chicken…

I thought, “Maybe I could make that recipe, but even better.” I did just that. I made my own version of “Shake and Bake” and added it to boneless skinless chicken breasts (you could substitute pork chops) with a plenty of salt and pepper and olive oil.

Homemade Shake and Bake- I eyeballed all these servings- Add more or less of what you want.

2 cups plain breadcrumbs
1 cup shredded or crumbled parmesan cheese
1 handful of chopped fresh herbs- basil, sage, marjoram, oregano
Mix together in a large zip top bag.


Preheat oven to 350.
I took 2 chicken breasts and salt and peppered them liberally on both sides. Then I covered both of them with olive oil. I added the chicken breasts to the zip top bag with the Homemade mixture and shook them up. The girls had fun with this part. I put them in a sprayed baking dish. Bake for about 45 minutes.

Pantry Raid sides- I served with steamed fresh broccoli (steam for 20 minutes in a steamer), a side of rice (boxed Zataran’s mild), and cheesy garlic bread (frozen).
