I can’t get enough of these homemade Shake and Bake pork chops that I made for my family. These baked breaded pork chops are just so crisp, tender, and perfectly seasoned. And it’s all thanks to the Shake and Bake pork mix that I had fun recreating from Kraft Foods. This savory bread crumb seasoning is also known as Shake n Bake and was really popular back in the day.
What I love the most about Shake n Bake is how it gives me a hassle-free way of coating meat in bread crumbs. Instead of dredging the meat in flour and egg first, all you need to do is place the meat inside the plastic bag and shake until the seasoning sticks. Then, bake it in the oven and wait for that golden brown and crispy goodness.
I really love the way the Shake n Bake pork seasoning tastes. Instead of running out to buy one, however, it was much easier to recreate them. I noticed that the ingredients were really simple and kitchen-friendly. In other words, I already had most of them on hand. All I had to do was buy pork chops! I mixed bread crumbs with paprika, table salt, celery salt, garlic salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and a little bit of vegetable oil.
Now comes the fun part: shaking the pork chops in this delicious concoction. I shook the bag for about 15 seconds, and it coated my pork chops perfectly. After coating the pork chops, I then popped them in the oven and waited for about 25 minutes. When it was done, I had a delicious serving of tender baked pork chops that paired perfectly with .
Some people would make their shake and bake pork chops with mayo to get a much thicker coating. Before they shake it in the bag, they coat the meat with mayo first. It’s not part of the recipe, but I’d recommend it if you’re having a hard time getting the seasoning to stick.
Honestly, this seasoned and crispy pork tasted as good as the original. It gave that right amount of crisp and flavor to the pork chops. I’m definitely adding this homemade Shake and Bake pork chops copycat recipe to my weeknight dinner meal plans!
