It’s so easy to make homemade Shake ‘N’ Bake from scratch with this copycat recipe. If you have pork chops or chicken on hand, and some dried breadcrumbs you already have most everything you need to make homemade Shake ‘N’ Bake.

Why Make Homemade Shake ‘N’ Bake

Controlling preservatives and artificial ingredients is important to so many people. Why not easily knock out extra ingredients that you don’t need to prepare your dinner for your family? You can also add more or less of your favorite herbs and spices to your favorite pork chops.

You may want to control the amount of salt in your food and making a homemade mix is a perfect way to do this. You can make delicious homemade Shake and Bake at home.

Preparing copycat Shake ‘N’ Bake

When preparing the homemade breading, I find the largest difference between breadcrumbs from a can, and the mix from Shake ‘N’ Bake is that the packaged mix has finer ground breadcrumbs. If you want a more exact mix, I suggest you mix the breading in a food processor to emulate the packaged mix.

But mixing everything in a bowl will work just fine. You may even want to make breadcrumbs by hand before preparing this recipe.

How to make crispy pork chops in the oven

Oven-fried pork chops need to be cooked at a higher temperature, 425 degrees is recommended. I like to use pork chops that are bone-in for better flavor, but pork loin chops will also work just fine. I like to use chops that are about 3/8-inch, if your pork chops are thicker, or thinner, you will need to adjust the time.

It is important if the chops are thicker, that you reduce the temperature to around 400 and cook for 5 to 10 minutes longer. It is important to check and make sure pork is cooked to 145-155 degrees.

    When I made the copycat shake n bake pork chop recipe, there is a lot of the bread crumb mixture left over. Can I keep it in the shaker bag and reuse it the next day ?

    I have Never tasted garlic in Pork Shake n bake, I am allergic to garlic, I would know. I also do taste sage just like my Mom’s sage dressing with turkey. That’s why I love the pork shake n bake. Not quite a copycat. Maybe better to put Stove Top stuffing for Turkey in the food processor for the pork chops.
