For myself and my family, summer has always been about the wonderful connections we make and the delicious food we enjoy along the way. There is nothing quite like spending time in your own backyard, firing up the barbecue and sharing the events of the day together!
While I love grilling, I really value a recipe that allows me to express a creativity with the dish, but that is also easy to make. Summer entertaining means having enough time to enjoy the experience, sunshine and all! Some of my favourite recipe must-haves are Summer Fresh. They offer a wonderful selection of hummus and dips that compliment any meal. There really is a Summer Fresh product out there for everyone! To create my Chicken Cheese Fries, I went with McCain® Superfries Crinkle Cut as the base for the dish. After all, you need a crisp, delicious fry for this dish to really hit it out of the park!
Before I made a firm decision on what recipe I would be featuring at my most recent backyard party, I chose the perfect Summer Fresh dip. They have tons to choose from, but their Spinach Dip called to my taste buds. The dip is made with fresh spinach and mixed veggies, which I just couldn’t pass up!
Ingredients for Chicken Cheese Fries:
- McCain Fries (they have a huge selection and you can go with your favourite)

- Seasoning for the chicken (I went with onion powder and roasted peppers & garlic)
- Summer Fresh Dip
