Honey Sriracha Glazed Chicken Poutine Recipe

I begin by marinating the chicken breasts in a mix of barbecue sauce, orange zest, orange juice, sriracha, honey and stone ground or dijon mustard.  I let the chicken breasts marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to an hour.

Then, I place the chicken breasts on the grill and grill them for 8 minutes on one side.

When I flip the chicken breasts over, I brush a tasty glaze over each one and grill the chicken for 8 minutes more.

I remove the chicken from the grill, place them on a plate and cover the plate so the chicken can rest.  Meanwhile, I make the french fries.

For this recipe, I decided to use sweet potato fries instead of regular french fries. The sweet flavor of the sweet potato fries compliment the sweet and spicy sauce on the chicken.

To put this Honey Sriracha Glazed Chicken Poutine together, all you do is layer a bed of sweet potato fries on a plate, top with cheddar cheese and warm slices of the honey sriracha glazed chicken.  I always add a few spoonfuls of the leftover glaze over the top.

The poutine is delicious! The meat is tender and full of flavor. Make sure to drizzle some of the sauce over the top,  it’s too good to skimp on. I hope you like this fun twist on traditional poutine as much as my family does!
