Jollibee Poutine: Everything Jollibee in One Dish

July 25, 2013
Jollibee Poutine1

Not to be confused with Animal Fries, Poutine is a Canadian dish that’s oozing with lovely lardy goodness. And by that, I mean perfectly fried French Fries laden with brown gravy and topped with cheese curds. It’s enough to make you want to book a flight to Canada right now.

If you can’t fly out to another country  just to satisfy your cravings, relax. We were able to recreate a similar version using local ingredients. And by local ingredients, I mean stuff you can buy from everyone’s favorite Filipino fast food chain: Jollibee.

Other international fast food joints (such as McDonald’s, KFC, and Burger King) have tried to recreate this Canadian comfort dish. If you’re thinking, “Damn son, that looks good.” Wait until you hear (and taste!) our version. And nope, it does not include bacon.

The French Fries were the easy part. With the cheese curds, we had to be a little more creative so we took a regular Yum with Cheese, tore it up, tossed it into the fries instead. Lastly, we drizzled some glorious Chickenjoy Gravy over the whole thing.

Oh, and the best part? We didn’t waste the chicken that came with the gravy at all. We added some of that sinful Chickenjoy SKIN to our poutine because, why the hell not? Do you see how magical our creation is now? Can you think of any other localized version of poutine that’s possibly better than this? We didn’t think so.

Jollibee Poutine

Total Time: 5 minutes / Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-pc. Chicken Joy
  • Large Fries
  • Regular Yum with Cheese
  • Extra Large Gravy

Procedure

  1. Peel the skin off the Chickenjoy, and chop. Set aside.
  2. Take the burger patty of the Yum with Cheese, and delicately remove the cheese from the bun (it usually tends to stick). Chop and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, spread the fries at the bottom.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped-up burger and cheese.
  5. Drizzle with gravy.
  6. Top with Chickenjoy skin.
  7. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. When ordering the Chickenjoy, ask for the thigh parts because they have the most skin.

For a Filipina living in the French- Canadian part of Canada (or as the locals call it Acadian region), Jollibee poutine is match made in heaven. It’s like being in two places at once!

Which Acadian region are you referring to?? Correct me if i’m wrong, The Acadians has been gone from New Brunswick for more than 3 centuries. And the only French-Canadian here in canada is Quebec.=S

Nice!!! Great Idea!!!

[…] Since your funds would probably be a little strained at this time, it’s best that you opt for something that’s both affordable and a reliable source of comfort. My advice is to order the most unhealthy, high-calorie fast food item you love and go to town on that bad boy. It doesn’t matter if you choose burgers, or sandwhiches, or even rice meals. Enjoy yourself thoroughly.  Who needs a cellphone when you have Chicken Joy? […]

Well it’s not really an idea if it was already invented years ago by French-Canadians, but it still looks pretty damn good!!
