I love a good Shake and Bake. The crispy crunch it adds to a chicken or pork is delicious, but when I use it, I always wonder what’s exactly in this. The sodium always seems high, and I don’t feel confident about the ingredients sometimes depending on what stores I purchase it from and the look of the mixture.

With that in mind, I like to make my own mixture and know what my family is eating. I make a bulk batch since it stays fresh for a while if you use a glass bowl for storage. Using a ziplock bag can give it a baggy taste if you know what I mean. I try to use it within a week. The batch you’re mixing with the chicken needs to be in a separate bag or glass bowl so you don’t contaminate the mixture that you’re saving.

The mixture I have below uses 8 chicken tenderloins. If you’re making a bigger batch, use more breading mixture.
