Recently I was contacted by Allison from Shake n Bake to see if the Krista’s Kravings household would be interested in trying their newest flavour, Crispy Buffalo. The whole kit included the crispy buffalo, football/hockey themes party plates, a tip sheet on how to throw a party and a gift cert for supplies. Very generous, IMO. Seeing as we are not a football family and even though we are definitely a hockey family it is for that reason that we were (regrettably) too busy to throw a party. Allison agreed to send just the coating mix for us to try. YES!!
I love the new look of their packaging! Very streamlined and to the point. (*note: even though I have bought Shake N Bake products many times before, this was sent to me at no charge)
I decided to make this last weekend when DD was off at her Hallowe’en party. She’s not a fan of Shake n Bake (I know!!) so I knew she wouldn’t miss it. I had chicken breasts on hand and also used some of the coating on potatoes. Here are the potatoes getting a shake!
Then my camera died and I had to charge it while everything baked so I would have some dinner photos! DOH! Here were are hot out of the oven! The piece you see in the back with very little coating was DS’s. I figured it would be a bit spicy for him so only used a bit. I served it with a side of peas and corn, cuz that’s how we roll! :)
I took notes as we ate so these are our thoughts
DS-tastes like bacon (??), a bit too spicy BUT still super good!
Hubby-nice bite, great crispy coating, works awesome on the boneless chicken, not sure if I would like it as much with chicken “on the bone”
Me-same tangy smell as restaurant wings, good dose of heat, kept the chicken extremely moist
The consensus is that we all really enjoyed the Crispy Buffalo flavour! I would definitely buy this product and at an approximate price of $2.39/box for two pouches, how can you go wrong???
Here’s a bit more information about Shake n Bake
other flavours include extra crispy, original, parmesan (Mmm…), ranch & herb, herb & garlic, Italian, hot & spicy, BBQ glaze and original pork. Something for everyone, if you ask me!

Some final thoughts
You could most definitely use this on something other than chicken. I was thinking that it would really jazz up some jumbo shrimp!
This worked well on the potatoes, too. Sweet potatoes would also be awesome
Takes no extra time or involvement to prepare. Simply shake and bake!! :)
Have you ever used any brand of Shake & Bake? If so, which one and what type of meat (or other food) did you use it one? Would you try the new Crispy Buffalo flavour? Did you find this review helpful?
Bye for now!!
