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 :)

Our favourite! We have learnt not to cook it in a sauce as it soaks up a lot of it (as most meat alternatives do!) But its perfect when fried until golden and then served with a sauce - best range we have tried!

Great in a curry

5 stars

I'm not really a fan of fake meats as I don't like the texture, however I really enjoyed this product in a curry. I put the strips in the oven for 10 mins first to dry them out a bit before adding to the curry and it turned out great! Much better than using e.g Quorn pieces.

The chicken had a bad consistency, soft and mushy. Didn't have a good flavour either. Sorry :(
