  • 3 tbsp. Canadian cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 English cucumber, seeded and julienned (or grated and drained)
  • 1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. butter
  • 6 cups baby spinach
  • 4 oz. Canadian medium cheddar, grated



  1. In a bowl, mix cream cheese with lemon juice and zest. Season with salt and pepper, and add cucumber. Stir and reserve.
  2. Season chicken with spices.
  3. In a saucepan, melt butter on high heat and brown chicken for 5 to 10 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
  4. Arrange spinach on four plates. Top with chicken, sprinkle with cheese and use the remoulade as the salad dressing.

For a slightly different flavour profile, try swapping the cheddar cheese for Swiss or Gouda.
