My mom used to occasionally make Shake ‘N Bake chicken when I was growing up, and I recall thinking it was a real treat when she did. I thought it would be fun to make it for Shabbat dinner, since it fits with my comfort foods theme this week.
I took the skin off some of the chicken pieces before shaking and baking so the boys could choose between a plain piece (I’d just remove the skin with the coating) or a “fried” one. They chose plain, and really only G. ate any of it. So this is clearly not the start of a fond food memory for the boys! But I enjoyed it, regardless.
