Chipotle Shake’N Bake

It has been a long, long time since I have made Shake’N Bake pork chops. They were a staple in my bachelor days. I also recall my mom making Shake’N Bake chicken or pork chops back when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. Honestly, I’d forgotten all about it until the other day when I came across a copycat recipe for Shake’N Bake. I instantly flashed back to the pork chops of years passed, and thought… boy, I really need to make those again. So I made the copycat of the mixture, but of course I had to add my own little twist. That twist came in the form of great, spicy smoky chipotle powder. What a great addition. I so loved these chipotle Shake’N Bake pork chops.
Chipotle Shake'N BakeDo go crazy adding the seasoning to this chipotle Shake’N Bake. I wanted just enough to get a hint of smokiness. I hint of heat. Subtle is what I was after and that’s what I ended up with. If you want less subtle and enjoy curry, try my curry Shake’N Bake. My lowcountry smothered pork chops are a true treat too!

My favorite way to use chipotle Shake’N Bake is on pork chops cooked in my Big Easy.
