This was a delicious and filling dinner I whipped together one night for dinner. It was honestly the quickest and easiest meal to put together and I forgot how yummy Shake & Bake was! This was truly a “walk in the door, assemble, set it and forget it” type of meal. Dinner was done in 40 minutes – which was the amount of time it took for the pork to cook through.
I started off the meal by trimming the fat off my pork chops. Rinsed them under water then dropped them into the plastic bag that comes with the shake and bake. I shook each pork chop up individually and put them onto a baking sheet. Into the oven they went with the timer set.
I peeled and husked some corn, put it in a pot with a splash of milk and set it on to boil. I then took my potatoes, rinsed them and popped them into the microwave for 8 minutes. Yes – did you know you can have a baked potato straight out of the microwave? It’s my go to method when I want a potato because it makes it simple and I don’t have to wait 40+ minutes for it.
When everything was done, I measured out my serving and dinner was ready to rock and roll! What I had was 4 ounces of pork with shake and bake on it (6 points plus), a 7 oz potato (4 points plus), a corn on the cob (2 points plus) and ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce (0 points plus). Overall 12 points plus – filling and delicious!
What is a quick and easy meal you haven’t had in a while?
