  Skinny shake 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Broiler fryer 2 , cut up

Measure out 1/2 cup of "Skinny Shake" mix and put it in a heavy paper bag.
Moisten the pieces of chicken with water and shake them up in the bag, a few pieces at a time.
Arrange chicken, skin side up, in a single layer on a non stick baking pan and bake in a moderate oven (375°) about 45 minutes, adding absolutely no other fats or oils.
Don't be alarmed if the chicken seems dry for the first 20 minutes; then the "Skinny Shake" starts to work, and at the end of the baking period, it will be crisp and perfect.
BASIC "SKINNY SHAKE" (recipe makes enough to coat about 20 cut up chickens or about 30 servings of fish fillets): Empty one 16 ounce container (about 4 cupfuls, dry measure) of bread crumbs into a deep bowl and stir in 1/2 cupful of vegetable oil with a fork or pastry blender until evenly distributed.
Add 1 tablespoon salt, 1 tablespoon paprika, 1 tablespoon celery salt and 1 teaspoon pepper.
This is a good seasoning for chicken, fish or chops or season it to suit yourself: Onion or garlic powder, sesame or poppy seeds, dried herbs, lemon pepper use your imagination!
