Product Description

  • Discover all our recipes on our website,
  • Enjoy as part of a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.
  • The Vegetarian Butcher's Chickened Out Burger is 100% plant based, and as tasty as the original. Our vegan Chickened Out Burger tastes so much like the traditional meat that you so love, that you won't be able to tell the difference. A carefree sin with no guilt and without having to miss out on your favourite tastes and textures. The Vegetarian Butcher offers the tastiest way to swim against the stream and and go meat free without compromise.
  • “Why use the poor chicken as a machine to produce meat when you can use a machine to produce ‘meat' that seems like chicken?” - Mark Bittman from the New York Times.
  • Just like workhorses were replaced by tractors a hundred years ago, animals will be replaced by sustainable new techniques that produce meat from legumes and grains. All of our ‘meat' lessens the impact on the environment of traditional animal agriculture and meat. Go the extra mile with our products by swapping out animal based meat and be much more efficient in the use of land, soy, and fossil fuels. We've created the best and most delicious way to convince meat lovers that meat no longer has to come from animals. So no need to chicken out - let the taste do the talking!
  • Our founder, Jaap Korteweg, a 9th generation Dutch farmer, became a vegetarian after the outbreak of swine flu in the Netherlands in 1998 when he was asked to store the carcasses of millions of dead pigs in his cold storage. He thought about becoming an organic farmer, but couldn't bring himself to slaughter his own animals after they became part of the family over the years. However, he kept craving the taste and texture of meat. So together with producers of vegetable protein, scientists and innovative chefs, his main goal became to develop and produce plant-based meat that is as good as if not better than the original. Now he is bringing them to the UK, in chilled and frozen options!
  • We've created a wide range of plant based proteins, all of which are vegetarian, and more than 70% are vegan with our ambition being to become 100% vegan! In the meantime, we believe that we can have a greater impact sooner if we use today's technology to make meat-free delicious as we develop the technology of the future to become fully vegan.
  • Enjoy as part of a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.
  • Jaap Korteweg, 9th generation Dutch farmer and founder of The Vegetarian Butcher:
  • "My goal is to produce delicious vegetarian meat that tastes even better than the original. Just like workhorses were replaced by tractors a hundred years ago, animals will be replaced by sustainable new techniques that produce meat from legumes and grains. My ambition is to give meat lovers the experience that they are not missing out when going meat-free!"

Delicious Vegetarian Butcher Chickened out Burgers

5 stars

These were delicious. Everyone enjoyed them. So quick and easy to prepare. We had them as burgers, but also with no bun, just saute potatoes and green vegetables. I hope they will be in stock again soon.

Delicious and great on a barbecue

5 stars

I love these. They are a very realistic and tasty vegan chicken substitute. Wish Tescos stocked them more consistently.

Simply awful taste and smell

1 stars

As a family we eat a range of meat substitutes. Quorn, soya/tofu and so on. So when we saw the vegetarian butcher range we were excited and bought the chickened out burger. It was such a disappointment. Actually it was more than that it was awful. My husband took one bite and put his burger down, usually he eats anything. I took a bite of mine and Lordy the smell and the taste was utterly repugnant. I know this sounds extreme but honestly we have a very varied diet and love new flavours but this was rotten. We had brioche baps, tomato, lettuce and mayo along with the burgers. The whole lot went in the bin. I usually don’t review items on Tesco because to be honest we find most things ok but these were so bad they made me angry. It may be that you find these burgers delectable but I can’t see how anyone could eat these without. Do yourself a favour and buy something else.

Salty and revolting.

1 stars

The first taste is SALT. It is very salty. And the rest of the taste is just thoroughly unpleasant. Nothing like any meat. My wife and I both had to throw it away, it was so disgusting. We are of course reluctant to waste food but this stuff is nothing like food.

Must try

5 stars

To die for. The only burger you need

Amazing taste for vegetarians and meat eaters

5 stars

Amazing quality and texture - completely different to the usual vegetarian burger - juicy, substantial

One of the best I have had

4 stars

This id not really a compromise on a real chicken burger. Its just as tasty and the texture and bite of it is comparable. I would say one of the much better ones Ive tried. And it saves a poor chicken, if I eat enough of them.

Good alternative to chicken

3 stars

Edible but extremely salty. However a nice alternative to chicken especially when on special offer.


5 stars

Fabulous, tried whilst on offer, would recommend, you can’t be disappointed with this! I’m sure it took longer to cook than the instructions tho’.


5 stars

WOW. I have been a vegetarian for two decades. I decided to try these today - absolutely delicious! On a whole new level of taste and texture for a vegetarian burger of any kind. Terrific. Not cheap, but will definitely buy again!
