Someone asked have you ever tried Newfie Poutine to which I replied no what is it? He proceeded to tell me that it was just like a regular Poutine but with Chicken and Stuffing and some add Green Peas. This sparked my curiosity thinking this is like a Thanksgiving leftover platter, how interesting. So sometime later, my mind thinking about it, I made it and WOW! This is so good. So much comfort when eating this.

This is absolutely one of the best ways to use leftovers after a Turkey Dinner provided there is still some Stuffing left. If not make some more. You can swap this out with chicken any day of the week. The added benefit is, if you have this after a Turkey Dinner, everything is already made for you. So it’s an excellent way to bring together your Leftovers to create another dish.

Newfie Poutine Ingredients

Use only a little of each ingredient. This Newfie Poutine Builds up fast. I use a Cheese blend of shredded Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese at a 3:1 ratio. It’s so much better than just regular Mozzarella Cheese and the Provolone just gives it that little extra.

The ingredients are

In this one, we add the addition of Green Peas. You could add cooked Waxed Beans, Carrots, Corn, Bacon, Onions, or any other leftovers that might go well with this dish.

Newfie Poutine Chicken or Turkey

Leftover Chicken or Turkey is used to top the poutine. That’s what makes this dish so great after the holidays. It uses up the leftovers. Although it doesn’t have to be. This dish can be enjoyed any time of the year by Baking the chicken pieces to be stripped off the bone and used.

Gravy

For the Gravy, we like to use JAH Frickin Good Chicken Breading to make the gravy which is used for the JFC Poutine.

But sometimes use St Huberts Style Poutine Gravy. This is sort of like a Chicken Gravy mixed with Tomato Soup & BBQ Sauce type Gravy or Sauce. Standard Chicken or Turkey Gravy can be used as well.

The shredded cheese blend of High Moisture Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese at a ratio of 3:1 is fantastic on poutines.
