Mom’s Shake and Bake

Posted by Brette in Food

ShakeNBake2When I was a kid, my parents liked Kentucky Fried Chicken (a brief note here: my parents were part of the “gourmet” movement of the 70s – the precursor to today’s “foodies”, yet they have an appreciation for fast food – go figure) but it was a luxury we couldn’t afford often. So my mom went about making her own. Her recipe is a bit vaguer than mine. “Put some flour in a bag and dump in a whole bunch of different herbs and spices.” She also uses chicken with skin on it while I prefer boneless, skinless breasts. This is my version of mom’s chicken.

Mom's Shake and Bake
Serves: 4
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup flour (I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free)
  • ½ teaspoon each of:
  • pepper
  • salt
  • cinnamon
  • oregano
  • poultry seasoning
  • Italian seasoning
  • celery salt
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • dry mustard
  • thyme
  • paprika
  • rosemary
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking sheet. Place the flour and seasonings in a bag. Shake the chicken in it, one piece at a time then place on the baking sheet. Allow it to rest a few minutes, then shake each piece again. Spray each with cooking spray thoroughly. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the chicken is 165 degrees.
  2. Serve with bleu cheese dressing for dipping.
