You know how sometimes you don't want to cook dinner? Like, everything is gross, nothing is appealing and you want a no-brainer for supper? I understand completely. So when you're feeling this way, you should pick up a package of Shake-n-Bake and make these extra crispy Shake-n-Bake drumsticks.
Shake-n-Bake Memories From My Childhood
When you hear Shake-n-Bake does it conjure up images from your childhood? It does for me. This was back in the day when little bags came with the Shake-n-Bake packaging and you'd put your chicken or pork inside it. Then you would, ahem, shake it then bake it. The package no longer contains a bag so you can go either way. Stick it in your own plastic bag to coat your protein or use a bowl.
To this day, my favorite thing my mom makes, besides her awesome spaghetti sauce, is Shake-n-Bake Pork Roast with Potatoes. And yes, the potatoes are also shaked-n-baked! Yet another way to enjoy the best food in the world - potatoes! I won't do another potato rant, but for those of you who don't know: potatoes are my favorite food in the world.
By the way, I am not being paid to promote Shake-n-Bake. This is not a sponsored post. I just genuinely love this product and think it's a fantastic alternative to frying chicken.
Shake-n-Bake Drumsticks = Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner
Even though these drumsticks are baked they are so damn crispy. That's the point of Shake-n-Bake. It comes as close as it can to make it seem like you are eating fried chicken. This makes me very happy. I love crispy chicken and I love low maintenance dinners. The zucchini and tomatoes require very little effort to chop. Then just place them on a sheet pan and bake in the oven. If you so choose: add some Shake-n-Bake to the tops of your veggies too!
The Shake-n-Bake crumbs are seasoned so no need to salt and pepper the chicken at all. The coating of the crumbs packs a punch of flavor and with the addition of the veggies this is a feast of a dinner.
