Mema was a wonderful lady and a fabulous cook

My husband Andrew would have dinner at his grandparent’s house once a week when he was younger. His grandmother Marion or better known as Mema was a fabulous cook. Her kitchen was a revolving door, with children and grandchildren coming in and out to eat various meals. Her dishes were simple yet delicious.

One of his favorite entrees that Mema made is the “Shake n Bake little chickens.” Yes, you heard it, good ole fashioned Shake n Bake. This brand has several seasonings, but oddly, it is the BBQ GLAZE that is hard to find. I order my seasoning from Amazon. In my recipe, I add a little baking soda to the seasoning to make it extra crispy.
