Sweet Spicy Chicken Fries Sandwich

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of McCain Foods. The opinions and text are all mine. #MyMcCainPotatoes #CollectiveBias

This piled-high, layered, Sweet Spicy Chicken Fries Sandwich is a messy sandwich – one you will need a plate for! But, it sure is blissful taking a big bite of all the mingling textures and flavors of those different layers!

This piled-high Sweet Spicy Chicken Fries Sandwich has shredded lettuce, tender shredded chicken (that was marinated and cooked in an easy sweet spicy sauce), caramelized onions, crispy mushrooms, McCain® Seasoned Curly Fries Seasoned Potato Fries, and McCain® Smiles® Mashed Potato Shapes.

When it comes to the different sports seasons of the year, I am clueless. I have no idea when basketball season ends, and football season begins. And, don’t even ask me about hockey and baseball…

But I do know that no matter what the sport season may be, there are always game day potlucks at friends’ homes. And, game day potlucks mean game day food ~ oftentimes with a plethora of McCain® products!!!! And, somehow, I manage to remember what I feasted upon on said game day potlucks! BTW, until 5/31/19, you can get $1.50 off when you purchase 2 participating McCain products at Walmart. You can submit your rebate & learn more details here.

And, speaking of game day feasting, there always seems to be an abundance of burgers and sliders at those game day potlucks I’ve been to. From vegan chickpea potato patties to double decker cheese sliders, burgers always seem to be center stage.

But, sandwiches… those piled-high, sure-to-wow-your-guests, messy sandwiches that demand two hands (and maybe even a bib), hardly ever make the game day potluck table!

So, today, I would like to share my contribution to the next game day potluck I attend: this Sweet Spicy Chicken Fries Sandwich.

McCain Products At Walmart

I picked up all the ingredients for this sandwich at my neighborhood Walmart. This piled-high Sweet Spicy Chicken Fries Sandwich has shredded lettuce, tender shredded chicken (that was marinated and cooked in an easy sweet spicy sauce), caramelized onions, crispy mushrooms, McCain® Seasoned Curly Fries Seasoned Potato Fries, and McCain® Smiles® Mashed Potato Shapes. All piled between two toasted or grilled slices of bread!

Making A Sweet Spicy Chicken Fries Sandwich

Now, this is a messy sandwich – one you will need a plate for! But, all those mingling textures and flavors… AND McCain® Seasoned Curly Fries Seasoned Potato Fries and McCain® Smiles® Mashed Potato Shapes… ALL in each, messy, bite! Ahhh… BLISS!!!

I’m thinking you might just forget what team was playing on TV… maybe even what sport was on…? 🙂

Sweet Spicy Chicken Fries Sandwich

Ok, Ok… I know I’m pushing it with that last line…
All kidding aside though, on my trial run, this was one super easy, tasty, and just plain fun, sandwich to pull together.

I believe you've just made THE most appetizing sandwich I've ever seen. I'm not huge on game days, but the only reason I ever do go is for the food! I know someone who would *love* this sweet & spicy chicken sandwich, especially with those fries stuffed inside!

I don't know much about sports either, but if I did these sandwiches would definitely make me forget the game. Talk about piled high - love it!!! And fries on there? What a brilliant idea, Shashi! Those smile fries always puts a smile on my face ;) You're seriously making me hungry right now!

Oh, these sandwiches are calling my name for sure, Shashi! I love fries on sandwiches, but I don't think I've ever made a homemade version. And that sweet + spicy shredded chicken would be awesome with the crispy fries on top. I bet Robbie would love that smiley face fries, too. I'll have to grab him a bag this weekend on our Walmart run! (That rebate is a great deal!) Thanks for sharing these yummy eats, my friend!
