Use Shake 'N Bake, which is manufactured by Kraft Foods, to give chicken and pork extra flavor and crunch. Apply the bread crumb-style coating to the meat prior to baking it in an oven. Using Shake 'N Bake will allow you to give the meat a crispy coating without frying it, which may save fat and calories. The breading is also convenient to prepare and doesn't require the use of oil; simply coat the meat and bake it in an oven until it's done.
Things You'll Need
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
15 x 10 x 1-inch non-stick baking sheet
6 to 8 bone-in or boneless pork chops
Shake 'N Bake Chicken
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Moisten the chicken breasts with water using a pastry brush.
Pour one package of coating mix into a shaker bag; both items are included in the Shake 'N Bake box. Place two pieces of chicken into the bag at a time and shake the bag to cover the meat with the coating.
Place the coated chicken breasts on the baking sheet. Bake the chicken for 20 minutes or until the meat is cooked through. Don't turn the meat during the baking process.
Shake 'N Bake Pork
Preheat your oven to 435 degrees Fahrenheit. Moisten six to eight bone-in or boneless pork chops with water using a pastry brush.
Pour one package of coating mix into the included shaker bag. Place one or two pork chops into the bag at one time and shake the bag to thoroughly coat the meat.
Place the coated pork chops on the baking sheet. Bake the pork chops in the oven for 15 to 25 minutes, or until the meat is cooked through. Don't turn the pork chops during the baking process.
Cook the chicken until its internal temperature reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit, and the pork until its internal temperature reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit, when checked with a food thermometer.
