Make Your Own Faux Shake ‘n Bake

I do not remember where I got this recipe but I do know my children were all small and they’re not anymore!  In fact, my children have children!

So it’s in the “oldie but goodie” category.

Because you make this yourself, you know there are no preservatives or ingredients that you can’t pronounce!

If you do make it, either divide it up into twenty portions and store in the freezer or take out a portion each time you use it.

IMPORTANT: Don’t just use the whole thing and save the rest.Take out just what you need for each batch of chicken.  You don’t want chicken (or fish or whatever) juices to get into it or you could end up sick as a dog.

Enough for 20 recipes of Oven Fried Chicken

4 cups flour
4 cups cracker meal
4 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
3 Tablespoons paprika
1/4 cup oil

Mix thoroughly. Store in refrigerator.

To prepare, you’ll need 3 to 4 pounds of chicken pieces.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Wash, pat dry and roll in the shake and bake.  Arrange skin side up in a baking pan and bake for 30 to 45 minutes (turning once) until nicely browned and juices run clear.
