When I was a little girl I remember getting SO excited over my mother making Shake & Bake Chicken or Pork Chops. Maybe it was those commercials? Do you remember those? LOL Anyway, Shake and Bake is actually not a staple in our house and it is actually something I totally forgot about until I saw a buy 1 get 1 free coupon in our Sunday paper.
Sure enough I got the 2 boxes and now I remember why I LOVED this stuff so much as a kid…it is REALLY good!
Luckily, my little girl is at that age where she can actually help by shaking the bag, which also brought back memories of me shaking the stuff up as a child…crazy huh?
So today’s Toddler Meal Monday is simple Shake & Bake Chicken.
What you’ll Need:
1 Box Shake & Bake (or similar brand)
1lb Chicken Breast Tenders
1 Can Green Beans
This stuff is so simple you just moisten your defrosted chicken fingers with water, place in bag, and have your little one shake it up. Place the coated chicken on baking sheet or broiler pan and bake as directed. The tenders do not take long at all to cook. Meanwhile open you can of green beans as heat as desired. Really this meal takes about 20 minutes and is delicious. Your toddler will eat it up for lunch. For dinner, I like to add some yellow rice to make up a meal.
This Shake & Bake method is much healthier than your fried chicken tenders, or processed frozen ones you find in the store…and much better tasting too!
