Fresh Take Chicken

Have you heard of the new product called Fresh Take?

It’s a product made by Kraft that combines cheese, bread crumbs and spices together to make a coating or a ground meat mix in. They are really pretty good. When they first came out I was able to try them for free or less then $.50 each. I was all over them. Now the coupons are less frequent and of lesser value. On sale without a coupon they are $2.50. Regular price $3.99. Way to much for me! Even the sale price is more then I’m comfortable paying. I decided to make my own. Pretty simple.

You’ll need:

5 – 6 chicken breasts

1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup fine bread crumbs

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tespoom organo

1 teaspoon cyanne pepper

2 Tablespoon oil or butter

Preheat oven to 375 F. Add oil to a large glass baking dish.I used expeller pressed coconut oil. Spread around to coat bottom of pan.

In a medium bowl add dry bread crumbs.

Add garlic powder.

Add oregano.

Add cayanne pepper.

Add cheese and mix.

If the chicken breasts are large I cut in half so they will have more coating

After you cut in the chicken in half rinse under cool water and dip into mixture until coated.

Lay evenly in the greased glass pan. I sprinkle any remaining coating on the top of the chicken.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches at least 165. F If you like them browned more on top put them under the broiler for a couple minutes. Crisps up the bread and cheese. Yummy.
