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