Shake and Bake Chicken from Scratch

This is our favorite homemade shake and bake chicken recipe. It is so crispy and full of flavor.


– 4 chicken breasts – boneless, skinless – 3 cups of bread crumbs – 2 tsp onion powder – 2 tsp white sugar – 2 tsp garlic powder – 1/2 tsp chili powder – 1/2 tsp parsley – 1/2 tsp basil – 1/2 tsp oregano – salt and pepper to taste

You only need a cup of this for 4-6 chicken breasts, maybe even more. I divide my seasoning into three equal parts for later use. You can freeze the remaining for later use.

With a third in a Ziploc bag, toss your chicken around until completely coated.

Bake in a preheated oven at 425. Chicken strips or nuggets for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Chicken breasts 20-25 minutes until cooked through.

You don’t have to only make shake and bake chicken with this seasoning, you could use this recipe to make homemade shake and bake pork chops as well.

This is really simple to make chicken breast recipe. You don’t need to make chicken nuggets or strips, you can do chicken breast the same way.
