Absolutely awful

1 stars

One of the worst vegan/vegetarian alternatives I've ever had. It looked a bit grey in the pack, the cooking of it is quite long, 7 minutes in oil then another 7 after adding water. It was tasteless and mushy and I didn't like the texture at all. It went in the bin. I will stick to my M&S soya and other alternatives. I also bought the beef and lamb versions and am now reluctant to try them.

Do not buy!

1 stars

I have eaten meat replacements for several years, 20 minutes after eating this i was violently sick. It tasted like rubber, and my body rejected it (i have never been sensitive to any food in my life!) I would 100% avoid after my horrific experience.

Very impressed

5 stars

We've tried most of the meat alternatives and this has to be among the best and definitely the best for plain 'chicken'. Without anything added once fried it tastes just like roast chicken and goes really well in a 'chicken sandwich'. Fry for longer for a more crispy texture. We've tried it with noodles in a stir fry too with a few dashes of soy sauce, and in a tandoori spice dish. Perfection every time! My partner is very fussy but was really impressed with this.

fantastic product. 7 minutes in the air fryer and

fantastic product. 7 minutes in the air fryer and perfect in wraps... keeps in the fridge after cooking, great texture.

Great Vegan Alternative!

5 stars

Made a vegan “nandos” wrap with this product and was simply in love! Would recommend ❤️

Excellent alternative to meat

5 stars

Really love this. We're not vegetarian, but I have been really wary of buying chicken for years because of the farming methods. I would buy free range or organic but it is usually very £££. This is an excellent alternative. The pack is really big and easily feeds four of us. It crisps up nicely and goes with lots of different meals. I will never buy chicken again I don't think.

Amazing product

5 stars

Absolutely amazing meat substitute, my partner is not a veggie so this is an ideal meet in the middle product. Closest veggie meat thing I've had to a 'meaty' texture.

Brilliant Product!!!

5 stars

Absolutely love every products from this brand. This chickenless absolutely yummy, I’m thai and this is perfect for Thai food. My favourite brand ever!!

Best chicken substitute

5 stars

This is the best chicken substitute ive ever used. Absolutely blown away. I fried it in oil like the instructions on the packet then stirred it into the curry sauce at the end and it turned out perfectly, slightly crispy on the outside but so moist and tender with an extremely meat like texture/taste. Similar to setain. My boyfriend was shocked it wasnt actually chicken. I tend to avoid quorn chicken pieces because they're a bit bland but this has made me excited to try other chickeny recipes. My only criticism is it is a bit crumbly and some bits broke into little pieces, but its not really an issue. Perhaps negative comments simmered it in sauce for a long time to make it soggy?

Perfect!! Just need to cook them right

5 stars

My boyfriends mum picked these up for me, and I have had them twice now, once in a fajitas bowl and then in a ‘chicken’ tikka masala. Both times absolutely lovely! It’s worth noting, which I took from someone’s else review, to bake the pieces in the oven for ten minutes prior to cooking them as it takes any unwanted moisture out. And then when cooking them in the pan, instead of on their own I have cooked them both times with garlic and onion before adding any other contents. I am super fussy when it comes to ‘fake’ meat, and these have hit the nail on the head, it’s just knowing how to cook with them :)
