- 4 cups flour
- 4 cups dry bread crumbs or cracker

You need a pretty big bowl to mix this in. A
clean dry dish pan will do the trick too.
Measure everything into the bowl one at a
time. The last step is dribbling in the oil.
Mix it all up with your hands or a fork.
This makes about 9 cups of mix. Store it in
a large coffee can, or a canister with a
To cook chicken or pork chops:
- 1/2 cup home made shake and bake mix
- 3 pounds of cut up chicken (leg
quarters are fine) or 2 pounds of
bone-in pork chops.
Put your home made shake and bake into an
empty bread bag. If the bag is very long,
you can trim off a few inches from the top.
Add the chicken or pork chops, one or two at
a time, and shake the bag, to coat the meat.
Arrange the coated meat on a large cookie
sheet or baking pan. When it is all coated,
bake the meat at 400° for about 45 minutes.
Boneless meat cooks in 30 minutes. Regular
meat though usually takes 45 to 50 minutes.
I usually use chicken leg quarters cut into
separate thigh and leg pieces. This stuff is
so good, you will find yourself making it at
least once a week.
