Franks Poutine or the Buffalo Poutine uses bite size Chicken or Pork on top of Fries with Cheese & Franks RedHot Gravy and more Buffalo Sauce drizzled over top. Add some Green Onions!

Use Franks RedHot Sauce to toss the deep fried coated meat, in the gravy and excess sauce drizzled over top the poutine for a seriously good poutine dish.

Chicken Breast

One boneless Chicken Breast sliced into bite size pieces. If with the skin, remove this and freeze to render out the fat for other recipes. Chop into about 1/2 inch pieces.

Pork Chop

One good size boneless Pork Chop chopped into bite size pieces, about 1/2 inch. Trim the Fat off the pork and freeze this to render out for other recipes.

The size of these are going to allow them to cook up nicely with a good crisp. Keep the meat, whether it’s chicken or pork to around 1/2 inch bite size pieces.
Which will take about 5 minutes to deep fry.

Marinade

The Marinade used is the same for JFC Fried Chicken. Exchange the Bouillon cube for the type of meat being used (Chicken or Pork). This is excellent for adding in more flavor.

Combine the below ingredients and heat to dissolve the bouillon cubes. Refrigerate to cool and marinate the bite size pieces.

  • Bouillon Cube (Chicken or Pork)
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt & MSG
Pork Marinade
Pork Marinade

Marinate on the counter while the deep fryer is heating up.

This works to flavor the meat as well as a saturation of the meat so that the added starches can adhere and create a coating.

The Type of bouillon cube I use is Maggi Chicken Bouillon and Knorr Pork Bouillon.

Breading

For this style of Breading we are going to use 2:1 Cornstarch to Potato Starch added to the Pork with the marinade drained out. Toss and mix well prior to deep frying.

Different types of coating can be used here. The main thing is you want a breading that will crisp up nicely with good color. The seasoning is already in the marinade.

Fries

Deep Fried Store-bought or Homemade Fries. Start these first as this takes the longest to cook. The Chicken or Pork should cook up in as little as 5 minutes.

Remove the Fries and place into a bowl while you heat the deep fryer up to around 375 F.

Franks Gravy

The Gravy is really simple. You got broth, both Chicken & Pork or you can double up on one or the other, a Thickener, a bit of Butter, and Franks RedHot Sauce. That’s it, and it’s wickedly good on a poutine.

  • 3 Cups of Water
  • 1 Chicken & 1 Pork Bouillon Cube
  • 3 Tbl Potato Starch
  • 2 Tbl Franks RedHot Sauce
  • 1 Tbl Butter

This makes plenty of gravy, more than what is required for this recipe. This gravy can be portioned off and frozen to use again.

Cheese

Authentic Poutine uses Cheese Curds. I almost never pick these up, as they are pricey and find that a blend of Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese at a ratio of 3:1 is just as good or just use shredded Mozzarella Cheese.

Buffalo Sauce

The Buffalo Sauce is used initially to coat the meat with any excess being drizzled over the top of the Poutine. Use the same bowl the fries were in to make the Buffalo Sauce and toss the meat.

For 2 Portions combine 1/4 C of both Butter & Franks RedHot Sauce.
