Chicken & Spinach Pierogi Casserole

When selecting food for my family, it’s important for me to know where the food is coming from. If food isn’t labeled properly, I simply won’t buy it. When choosing chicken, I look for the Raised by a Canadian Farmer logo because I know it was raised according to strict safety & quality guidelines. What exactly does that mean? A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet with a Canadian chicken farmer on his farm in Ontario. We saw the way they care for the chickens making sure that they are well taken care of with clean barns, plenty of food & water plus lots of space to roam around. They are many safety rules & controls in place to make sure that they are giving quality products to their consumers.

Wearing my special white safety suit (to protect the chickens from any germs we could pass to them), we had the opportunity to meet 24,000 baby chicks that had just arrived on the farm the day prior to our visit. The farmer showed us the controls in the barns and how they monitor the environment for the chickens.

The chickens have access to fresh food & water 24/7. The temperature in the barn is closely monitored to keep the chickens warm & comfortable. On the particular farm we visited, the chickens will be there for about 35 days.

Canadian chicken farmers take their job very seriously and are monitored to make sure they follow the strict guidelines set out for them. The end result (quality product for consumers) is always on their mind. Chicken farming is often a family-run business. Did you know that there are approximately 1100 family-operated chicken farms in Ontario?

By purchasing chicken Raised by a Canadian Farmer, I know that I’m feeding my family a quality product. We eat chicken several times a week in all sorts of meals like burgers, stir fry, meatloaf, over salad, in casseroles & more! The latest casserole we tried was inspired by the Cheesy Spinach & Chicken Pierogi Casserole on the Chicken Farmers of Canada website.

I made a few changes with the sauce (I used a mushroom sauce instead of a tomato sauce) and the spices. I’ve made it twice now and everyone really enjoyed it.

Chicken & Spinach Pierogi Casserole:

Before pouring the mushroom soup over the casserole, I mix it with the water so that it pours more evenly.
