Chicken Poutine

Chicken Poutine recipe pictures

There are many things in life that I absolutely, without a doubt, cannot imagine myself eating. One of those things was poutine. I wanted to part of it. Soggy fries? Cheese curds? I don’t even know what a cheese curd is. There is no way I was going to eat it. But poutine has been popping up everywhere lately. Its the new “it” appetizer. Well maybe new is pushing it. Its been around forever but I feel like it has become more mainstream lately. It is just not my thing though. I am not a dipper. I don’t dip my garlic bread in red sauce. And I can’t imagine gravy on fries. Until now.

I admit it. I was wrong. Poutine is wonderful! I am a little obsessed with it, in fact. Game changer for sure. Now I eat it every opportunity I get. I am still not really sure what a cheese curd is. It has something to do with sour milk. Doesn’t matter though. They are delicious. Even Winnie loves cheese curds. I like poutine so much that when I saw this recipe in Food Network Magazine I knew I’d have to try it. The recipe actually calls for mozzarella cheese but I’ve only ever had it with cheese curds so we went with that. If you can’t find cheese curds I am sorry. Go with mozzarella though. So, even though I don’t like my food soggy, I cannot resist poutine!

    Yum! I’ll definitely try this! A great Canadian tradition for my bf and I after a camping trip is to make poutine so this will be next. Thanks for sharing :)
