Exceptional Plant-based Vegan “chicken” that cooks, smells & tastes just like chicken.Jump to Recipe
It’s the start of a new year and almost everyone has a few resolutions. But we have to agree Dry January & Veganuary Challenges are popping right now. And if you’re a participant, a full time vegan or even just giving vegan options a try then this recipe is for you.
I used vegan chicken style pieces that I received from a plant-based company called Green Meats Co. The company was born with the aim to make the transition to a plant-based diet easier for the everyday meat eater by producing easy-to-cook, great to look at & delicious meat alternatives.Jump to Recipe
Being my first time cooking with vegan ‘chicken’, I opted for a simple recipe and made one of my favourite pan asian recipes – Sticky Asian Glazed ‘Chicken’. Which can be served with either noodles, steamed rice or simply on its own with a fresh salad of your choice. I served mine with steamed jasmine rice, a freshly made salad and paired it with a fresh homemade Rose Lemonade – a drink perfect for Dry January 😀Jump to Recipe
I enjoyed cooking with this Chkn and my end results were pretty impressive. The chkn texture was incredible and absorbed all the flavours just the way I wanted it to.
