This isn't really "breading" in the true sense of the word since there are no bread crumbs!
How much this will coat depends on what you're using this for. It can be used for chicken, which is what I primarily use it for. The chicken breasts I get are really large (Tyson breasts from Costco: some are 11 ozs each), or you can use it to coat fish as well.
8 Tbsp parmesan cheese (I use the imported parmesan cheese from Costco)
1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
1 Tbsp Old Bay Seasoning (this is my stand-by seasoning I use in most things)
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 tsp onion powder
Just combine everything together and shake it well to mix everything together.
For chicken, I cut the breasts in half, dip in unsweetened almond milk or egg and I have the mixture in a plastic storage container. You can also dip in Kefir (which gives a great flavor to the chicken!) or yogurt.
Put the chicken in the container, put the lid on and shake the living daylights out of the container which should coat the chicken well.
I used to put it in a plastic baggie, but doing it in a plastic container preserves more of the mixture to use.
In between coating pieces, check the sides of the container to make sure none is stuck -- if so, scrape off with a fork and continue on.
For this amount made, this coats 4 of the large Tyson chicken breasts (cut in half) easily. If your chicken breasts are smaller, it would coat more of them obviously.
