Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
When I was a kid, Shake and Bake Chicken used to be one of my favorite "treat" meals. Now with kids of my own, I decided to make Shake and Bake for my kids to try too. The response was as good as I remember that I had - it's crispy and delicious! Shake and Bake is really easy to make: simply put the Shake and Bake in a plastic bag, wet your chicken a little and toss in and SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE! Bake it for about 45 minutes at 400 degrees and you'll end up with some crispy "almost like fried" chicken. The flavor isn't too salty, and leans more on the mild side. If you like it a little spicier, rub on a little tabasco before coating the chicken.

This version of Shake and Bake doesn't come with the shaker bag included. You will need to either 1) have a ziploc bag to put the chicken in, or you can just put the S&B in a pie dish (or other shallow dish) and coat it that way. We don't like using too many bags, so we just used a large bowl and tossed the chicken around until coated.

For people who are having problems with getting soggy bottoms on your chicken, an easy way to keep that from happening is to crumple up the foil and put the chicken on top. This creates some air pockets under the chicken so that less of it is sitting on the foil. If you're using chicken wings, you won't even have to crumple the foil because most of the chicken is off the pan. You can also use a wire rack to make the whole chicken crispy. Each pack can coat about 6 pieces (we did 2 each of wings, thighs, and drumsticks and had a little left over in the bowl).

I used to love Shake N Bake when I was a kid. I also remember my mother not caring for it. Now I see why after trying it for the first time in years. There are pros & cons. It doesn't taste bad, but it's very bland to me. I just feel like it needs a little something extra. The pro side is that it is extremely fast & easy, just wet the chicken, throw it in a ziploc bag with the packet contents & shake it up. Once in the oven it bakes up nicely with a crispy exterior & keeps the chicken moist. I just wish it had more flavor. As for shipping, you get a clear plastic bag with 12 pouches inside. Someone else mentioned using this to flavor dishes, I could definitely see this as a crispy topping on baked mac & cheese.

I usually pan sear chicken and then throw it in the oven. Adding spices before I put the chicken on the pan and during the process allows for a good amount of opportunity to make the chicken to my liking. With this product, you place a clean, washed piece of chicken in a zip lock bag, and shake it with the ingredients found in this Shake n Bake pouch. Problem here is it's hard to get a full, even coating around the chicken and just putting it into the oven means you're missing out on some of what you'll get if you are used to a different preparation. Now, overall this isn't a bad product just a limited one that you can use if you're running low on time in terms of preparation. Seasoning wise, it's at times hit or miss, you'll get some taste in there but it again depends on how you like to prepare your chicken and with what flavors.

I missed Shake 'n' Bake. I haven't had this stuff since I was a kid. It was so easy, except I was surprised by one thing: it didn't come with a bag. It is just a packet of seasoning - I thought I remembered this coming with a bag. No big deal, I always have spare Ziploc bags on hand, and I didn't even use one for this. I simply poured the seasoning on a plate and dipped the raw chicken onto it, and it covered very well. I didn't need to coat the chicken in egg or water or anything, the seasoning stuck very well.

As for taste, it was very good. Interestingly, it tasted slightly similar to Old Bay, so I tried it on some Tilapia and that was good, too!

I remember eating Shake 'N Bake when I was a kid. I think I even got the privilege of shaking the ole Ziploc baggie. I recently tried the Original Chicken flavor. I think the individual serving packs are great size. I even tried this on Tilapia tonight and it was pretty good. It's a great alternative to fried foods. I like that it is a really quick and easy meal solution. It takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish.

Shake `N Bake Original Chicken Coating is very easy to use. You can use it on 6 - 8 pieces of chicken, either bone-in or boneless. You simply moisten each piece of chicken, put the coating mix in a bag, put the chicken in the bag (one or two pieces at a time), and shake the bag until the coating mix covers each piece of chicken. Once that is done you put the chicken in an ungreased baking pan, heat the oven to 400 degrees, and cook for either 45 minutes (bone-in) or 20 minutes (boneless). You just stick it in the oven - no need to turn the chicken during cooking - and forget about it until it is done.

Shake `N Bake Original Chicken Coating makes for a quick easy meal to prepare that tastes good. I have to confess that I'm not a particularly good cook and I don't have the patience to fix fancy meals but even I can't mess up when using Shake `N Bake. It is very easy to coat the chicken (although if you have large pieces of chicken you may run out of mixture) and it only takes a matter of seconds to rinse the chicken, coat it, and put it in the oven. You can use it on either bone-in chicken or boneless (for a quicker meal) and while both taste equally good, I prefer to use it on bone-in chicken. It tastes good (sort of like fried chicken) although a bit greasy. The pan can be a bit messy after cooking but it is still an easy cleanup.

Shake `N Bake Original Chicken Coating is great when you need to fix a quick easy meal.

Have tried it a few ways...including the traditional boneless chicken breast. Instructions on the package were dead on...made a beautiful breast that had a nice crunchy exterior (fairly thin though...if you wanted thicker you might try egg? If I try this I'll let you know if it works) and a lovely moist interior

The only reason I gave it 4 stars was one thing...I personally don't really care for celery as a seasoning and it's very strong in this packet. For me at least that's not a great thing :(

Another great use is just to use it as a general seasoning...works in rice and my boyfriend's "veggie burgers" (made of oatmeal and onions)...gives a really nice flavor this way too.

I remembered having this as a youngster, and tried to find it in the local stores to no avail. I have 4 teenagers and when I found this on Amazon I had to try it. It is the same as I remember. I don't follow the directions, but use it to coat the chicken for an 'Oven bag' recipe. All the kids love it.

Growing up, Shake'N Bake was a primary staple in our household. I can still remember the anticipation knowing that my mom was using this product to complete our dinner.

Fast forward thirty, okay, forty years and when I realized I hadn't used Shake'N Bake in more years than I wanted to admit, I jumped at the chance to try this out.

It was exactly as I remembered. The 2.05 ounce pouch holds just enough seasoning for an entire cut up chicken. I used five breasts and they were coated perfectly. It was just that easy. And just that tasty!

I would definitely use this product again. The spices are just right without being overpowering and the mixture coats the chicken just as intended.

Shake 'N Bake has been a part of my life for years. I can remember doing chicken breasts and pork chops with my mom many years back. It is fun and easy, and makes plain old meat more fun. Now my son is my "shaker" and he now loves it like I did. That being said, let me tell you that it will never look like it does on the front of the package. The coating is never as thick as in the picture. What you get is a nice thin coating.

This particular style of Shake 'N Bake comes in a pouch so it is missing the plastic bag that you get when you buy it the old fashioned way. It is not difficult using a Glad or Ziplock brand bag to do your shaking. This is a nice way to change up your usual grilled or sauteed chicken. Give it a little shake, bake it in the oven, and enjoy!
