I love Gardein brand because their products are all vegan, the quality is excellent and while they taste perfect on their own they can be the basis for building a masterpiece of your own. These orange chick’n wraps start with a hearty protein base from the Gardein product which includes a perfect orange sauce that can be heated in three minutes. You’ve just saved some serious time.
Then just chop and add fresh, colorful toppings like carrots, cilantro, green onions, and you’ve brightened up the flavor and color of your dish. The chick’n product tastes like the real deal and has a great crunchy coating right out of the oven. You can also pan fry it, but you save calories by baking it. I added a can of water chestnuts (drained, rinsed and chopped), a pinch of red pepper flakes for heat and slivered almonds for crunch. So when you’re short on time–and who isn’t–go for an “almost homemade” meal and prepare to impress.
Gardein brand chicken strips provide an amazing chicken-like texture and, like real chicken, the taste is determined by the seasonings you use. In fact, that’s true of any meat – meat by itself doesn’t have taste unless we add salt, pepper, seasonings and vegetables! So doesn’t it make sense to use great seasonings and veggies with a healthy protein alternative? Gardein’s “chick’n” is 15 g of protein per serving with 0 fat and 0 cholesterol. You’ll love the beautiful colors and crunch of this salad and the cranberry vinaigrette makes it great for the holiday season, but you can enjoy it any time.
