Cooking with Kyle -Cheesy Chicken Legs

This week Kyle decided to make a quick and inexpensive meal for Cooking with Kyle.   This week at Meijer Kraft Fresh Take was on sale for $2.  I also had a $1 coupon for Fresh Take, which made it only $1.  A few weeks ago chicken drumsticks were on sale for $1.99 a pound,  and I picked up a 5 pack for only $2.11.    He chose the Ore Ida fries because they were in the freezer, and he felt like having some French fries.  He had recently seen the television ad where Ore Ida claimed that each serving was under a 150 calories a serving.

He opened a bag of Cheddar Jack and Bacon and mixed the contents 

He followed the directions on the package which said to dip the chicken in water before placing in the bag.  The water was not enough to make a much of the coating stick.  I would recommended using an egg wash, which is what we will do next time. 

Since he did not get an even coating, he added the rest of the bag on top of the chicken

Reading the back of the fry bag to see how long they needed to be in the oven. 

The chicken came out all crispy and golden.  He cooked the chicken 30-40 minutes in the  oven. I helped him to make sure they were done, and that they were no longer pink. 

He wanted to eat, not pose for an after picture.  He was a bit grumpy here. 

The end result was delicious cheesy coated chicken legs  that we all enjoyed. 


  1. Looks Wonderful, Way to go Kyle!!

  2. This looks so yummy. I've been wanting to try those new Fresh Takes...they look wonderful. I love that he is doing these cooking segments...what fabulous life skills he's learning. I dated a boy in college that knew how to cook better than I did...he was a hot commodity! I hope my boys are eager to learn these valuable skills, too. Thanks so much for linking up with Mop It Up Mondays...have a wonderful week!
