first_imgFrench fries and cheese curds topped with brown gravy: Sounds nauseating, huh?The Québécois dish, a favorite of our neighbors to the Great White North, has gained popularity around the world—particularly in the UK (where folks love to smother chips with thick sauce).So it’s no wonder that fast food chain KFC has assimilated the twisted recipe into its own menu.Customers in Lumberjack Country can buy poutine with a sprinkling of chicken on top. But if you’re craving the Canadian cuisine in Great Britain, there’s a hack for that.UK-based burger review site Burger Lad cooked-up a clever way to request the savory treat for less than £6.It’s as simple as asking for a regular popcorn chicken meal (£4.19 for barnyard balls, fries, and a drink), with a side of gravy (£1.19).The order, however, requires a certain finesse, according to Burger Lad.“Firstly, the fries and popcorn chicken will normally come separately in their own containers, neither of which lends itself to having gravy poured all over,” the site said. “What you do is ask for them to be put together in a Mighty Bucket.“The other important thing to remember is the cheese,” the Lad continued. “Ask for two slices of cheese to be added, ideally on top of the fries and under the chicken so it has a chance to melt a bit.”Then take the bizarre concoction back to your table to “quickly … start building poutine.”Assuming you’ve washed your hands first, tear the cheese into small pieces, mix the ingredients, and pour the gravy (preferably before it cools too much).“Mix that up again and give it a moment to melt the cheese, and voila, you’ve got (almost) poutine,” Burger Lad said.Most importantly: Ignore the odd looks from fellow customers too uncultured to understand why you’re dressing chicken, cheese, and chips with anything other than ketchup.While this hack appears to be picking up steam in the UK, there is no reason folks across the world can’t visit their local KFC for a DIY dish. There is certainly no harm in asking. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img
