Mr Larrivée, a TV host and food writer from Quebec, has created a unique sandwich for Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC), which is also celebrating its 25th year as the National Sponsor of Canada Day in the Capital.

The sandwich for Canada’s 150th birthday features over 15,000 fresh, Canadian chicken breasts, seared to perfection and marinated in brine, sugar, and pepper, and served topped with cilantro coleslaw and creamed corn!

“We can’t wait for Canadians to come and enjoy some delicious, fresh chicken, raised by a Canadian farmer, this Canada Day,” said Benoît Fontaine, Chair of CFC. “This recipe from Ricardo features some very Canadian ingredients and reminds Canadians from coast to coast that our farmers have been raising the great Canadian chicken that has been a nutritious choice of their families for generations!”

“Canada Day is a great opportunity to celebrate together, as a family, and what better way than with some fresh Canadian chicken and some amazing, fresh ingredients that showcase the diversity and bounty that farmers here in Canada provide,” said Mr Larrivée. “Thank you for asking me to create this recipe, Chicken Farmers of Canada, and Happy Birthday, Canada!”

Supporting Food Banks

As in the past, 50 cents from the sale of each chicken dish is donated to the Ottawa Food Bank. Chicken Farmers of Canada would also like to thank Maple Leaf Prime, for providing the chicken for the event and for helping in the fight against hunger.
