Crispy Cheddar Chicken

My nephew is always wanting Meme (my step-mom) to make him fried chicken.  This kid could live off fried chicken and he swears Meme's is the best.  Well, I won't argue with him that her fried chicken is pretty good if you're into fried chicken. When my nephew ate this I could of sworn I heard him say "this is better than Meme's".  We will keep that statement hush, hush.  I didn't have the heart to tell him it wasn't fried.
