I believe that I have yet to make any recipe that calls for deep frying. I vow to someday get over that fear. BUT I get nervous around a pot of hot oil. It seems like you have to have the temperature just right, and I always worry that my coating is not going to stick, the meat will be raw inside, it will be too greasy, etc. etc. etc. Definite fear of frying!

For now baking is my friend. Plus, obviously, it’s a healthier option.

Shake N Bake is manufactured by Kraft Foods and was first introduced in 1965. With slogans such as “Shake N Bake: It’s better than frying”, and “Why fry? Shake N Bake” it has been marketed as a healthier and less-greasy alternative to frying. It’s a flavored bread crumb-style coating for chicken and pork that comes with a baggie for you to shake your meat in order to cover it with the breading mixture.

I remember eating Shake N Bake as a kid, growing up. That was quite a while ago, but I’ve got to say that I think this version tastes pretty similar! Pour your breadcrumb mixture into a Ziploc baggie and shake until your chops are coated in the crumb mixture. Bake for a half hour, and the coating gets nice and brown and crispy.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups plain bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp . canola oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp . seasoning salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp . paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp . onion powder
  • 1 tsp . sugar
  • 1/2 tsp . garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp . oregano
  • 1/2 tsp . parsley
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 4 1-inch thick boneless pork chops

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine bread crumbs, seasonings and oil in a bowl. Using a fork, mash to combine so that bread crumbs are uniformly combined with the oil.
  3. Place the Shake N Bake in a plastic Ziploc bag.
  4. One at a time, place your chops in the bag and shake to coat in the mixture.
  5. Place on a baking sheet lined with a Silpator tin foil (if desired) and bake for approximately 20 minutes, until cooked through.

Serve these chops alongside some mashed potatoes and a yummy arugula salad and you’re good to go!

Wine Pairings for Shake N Bake Pork Chops: 

  • Pork pairs awesomely with Pinot Noir. It’s a light bodied red that doesn’t overpower the flavors and the bright acidity is a nice match for the slight fattiness in the pork.

Tips:

  • You can also use this mixture to coat chicken. Bake boneless, skinless breasts for 30 minutes, or until no longer pink inside.

    I made this without the sugar & used olive oil instead of vegetable oil and it was great! As good or better than the original!

    They take a lot more then 20 minutes to cook! I cooked mine for about 40 minutes. They would have been raw after 20 minutes of cooking time

      Hi Sharon – If your pork chops are very thick, they may take longer to cook.

    Great recipe! I’ve done it “as scripted” and lately I’ve been adding 1 1/2 – 2 Tbsp. Parmesan Cheese to the mix. It makes the coating stick more uniformly and is pretty yum to boot.

      That addition of the parmesan cheese sounds delicious Gary – Definitely going to give that a try!
