1 pound chicken pieces, pork chops or beef cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Coat meat with milk and egg OR brush meat with olive oil before coating.
Dredge meat in coating. If desired, place in large resealable bag and shake coating with neat.
Arrange in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake in preheated oven until meat is cooked through. (About an hour, depending on the meat, the cut, and the size.)

    Thank you for this recipe.
    I am so thankful that there isn’t as much salt in this recipe as I know is in the commercial Shake & Bake.

    We had stopped using it. I’ll try this later this week.
    my husband loves breaded pork chops. And without all that salt he now can have them again.
