This crunchy shake-n-bake chicken will tantalize your taste buds with its unique and complex combination of herbs and spices. 

As the breadcrumb coating falls off the chicken, you can expect to be met with an explosion of flavor. Every bite bursts with a blend of herbs and spices that will make your mouth water. 

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups of plain breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons of black pepper
  • ¼ cup of oil
  • 3 pounds of chicken

Substitutions And Additions

BREADCRUMBS: We used panko breadcrumbs for this recipe, but any breadcrumbs that you have on hand would work fine.

PAPRIKA: I used smoked paprika, but regular paprika will do just fine.

OIL: I like using olive oil, but you can use avocado oil, canola oil, or your favorite vegetable oil. Feel free to use less oil if you want.

CHICKEN: I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and chicken drumsticks.

You can also use chicken tenders, bone-in chicken thighs, or even boneless pork chops for this recipe.

SPICES: You can use black pepper, chili powder, garlic salt, cayenne pepper, parmesan cheese in your spice mix as well.

How To Make This Shake And Bake Chicken Recipe

Shake and bake chicken is made by coating chicken pieces with a homemade shake-and-bake seasoning mix and then baking the chicken in the oven until they become golden brown and crispy.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

To ensure the breading sticks to the chicken, give the pieces a rinse and pat them dry with clean paper towels. The drier the surface, the more the breading will stick.

STEP ONE: Preheat your oven to 400°F.

STEP TWO: Pour breadcrumbs, paprika, garlic powder, celery salt, onion powder, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, sea salt, black pepper, and oil into a large resealable plastic bag or mixing bowl with a lid.

PRO TIP:

If the dry breadcrumbs are too big, you might need to make them smaller by using a food processor.

STEP THREE: Add a piece of chicken to the bag. Seal it and shake until the chicken is well-coated with your homemade bake mix.

Place the chicken in a single layer on a baking sheet pan sprayed with cooking spray and repeat this shaking process with the rest of the chicken.

STEP FOUR: Bake the chicken for 20 minutes.

Remove them from the oven, flip the chicken over, and bake for another 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

PRO TIP:

Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to keep a close eye on your chicken as the suggested cooking time approaches.
