So just how did Tweedie’s Shake-On Coating Mix end up in my private recipe collection with a thumbprint of tomato sauce on the card? Beats me! All I know is that I’ve been making his (?) her (?) recipe more years than I care to admit. And now you can make it, too.
Tweedie’s Shake-On Coating Mix:
2 c. fine dry bread crumbs
¼ c. flour
3 tbsp. paprika
4 tsp. salt (cut this down, if you wish)
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. oregano
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
½ tsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp. shortening
Chicken or pork parts, as needed
Milk, as needed
Combine all dry ingredients thoroughly; rub in shortening until mixture resembles fine meal. Refrigerate and store in tightly covered container. To use, preheat oven to 400 deg. F. Pour as much of the coating mixture as you think you’ll need into a plastic bag. Dip chicken parts in milk. Shake together with dry mixture in plastic bag. (Seal bag or you’ll be saying more than Eureka! Been there, done that.) Place chicken in a single layer in an ungreased casserole. Bake 35 to 40 min.
