This is a super easy dinner or lunch option. There are lots of vegetarian chicken alternatives out there but this is one of the best I’ve tried. It’s absolutely delicious, not dry like some can be, with a fab texture. It’s good enough to pass as chicken in this dish (in case you have any fussy eaters you want to get this past!).
This comes in at around 263 cals for a portion. You can obviously add rice or noodles if you wish but it’s a massive portion so you won’t need it! You can use any veg you have, or make life easy and grab a pre made bag of stir fry veg. You can have it plain, with soy sauce or if you like you can add hoisin sauce.
You will need:
1 pack of veggie ‘chicken’ (I used ‘what the cluck’ from the vegetarian butcher’
1 small onion
1/2 red pepper
Assorted greens (or do what I did and use a pre made mix!)
Soy sauce to taste (or hoisin sauce if you prefer)
Chop the veg.
Heat a little oil on a wok or frying pan and sauté the onions.
Meanwhile pop the veggie chicken in a separate pan (you can do it with the veg but I prefer to brown it separately to ensure it’s nice and crispy)
Add the peppers and mushrooms to the onions, cook for a couple of mins.
Add the other veg and stir fry for a few mins and then add the soy sauce to taste (or hoisin sauce) and cook through.
Add the chicken pieces and then serve!
