November 08, 2022

The team at CHEF’STORE® thanks Lamb Weston® for their sponsorship and for sharing this delicious recipe with us.

Looking for an effortless holiday party snack? Why not a spicy adaptation of classic chicken strips and fries? This easy recipe will surely be part of your holiday repertoire this season and beyond. Crispy chicken gets chopped as a mouth-watering topping for crinkle fries. Then the entire dish is finished with cheddar cheese, mango habanero sauce, and plenty of cilantro.

If you want to serve serious comfort food to your guests, Lamb Weston® french fries are the perfect fried companion to spicy habanero chicken. Many Lamb Weston® potatoes start in the Pacific Northwest’s rich soil. So when you buy any of their products, you know you are getting premium potatoes grown and harvested with quality in mind. These perfect potatoes are immediately cut and frozen, locking in flavor and ready for cooking. 

While they are cravable on their own, they also make an awesome base for innovative creations, especially when paired with this mango habanero crispy chicken recipe.
