Hot fries are piled with saucy barbecue chicken and topped with melting cheese and fresh green onion. This very simple meal is another spur of the moment dinner that turned out even better than I'd hoped.
Grill or broil the chicken thighs with 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce. See this chicken recipe for oven-broiling instructions. When the chicken has finished cooking, let it cool for at least 5 minutes before chopping into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch pieces. Drizzle the chopped chicken with the remaining barbecue sauce, to make it nice and saucy.
While the chicken is cooking on the grill, or while it is cooling from the oven, heat the oven to the manufacturer's suggested temperature (usually 425°F) and cook your french fries. Stir once or twice to ensure they are crispy all around.
Remove the fries from the oven, top with chopped chicken and sprinkle cheese curds evenly across the pan. Place back in the hot oven for 5-6 minutes, until the cheese has melted. Sprinkle with green onions before serving. Enjoy!
I typically choose sweet potato fries because they are my weakness and I love them. If you prefer classic fries, feel free to use them. If you're more of a baked potato person, simply chop up cooked potatoes and layer the ingredients over the top. There is no wrong way to make this meal. You can substitute 1/2-inch cubes of Monterey jack or mild cheddar if you can not find cheese curds, however, it's really worth it to look for the cheese curds.
