    I used the Italian Parmesean fresh take on chicken breasts and chicken thighs and my hubby loved them. Thus far ive tried the Chili Lime and Panko on fish, and the Italian Parmesan on chicken and the Savory four cheese on turkey burgers...theyve all been pretty good!

    I bought some fresh take as well. I forget which flavor I had, but it seems to be the only one they recommend on the package for beef. At any rate, I mixed it in w/hamburger meat and it was good. I'll buy it again.

    I used my Kraft Fresh Take for the first time this week and was pleasantly surprised. I was a little doubtful. I had the cheddar and bacon and it was delicious with chicken.
