I tried to make nandos style "chicken" with this. First time trying a chicken alternative and it was disgusting quite frankly... The seasoning stuck on nicely and it look appetising enough once cooked but it just has an awful taste and after taste, I'm not even sure how to describe it. I wish I didn't doubt the bad reviews and didn't waste my money as I didn't eat more than 1 bite without chucking it... My advice, don't bother with this.
Best chicken alternative out there.
Absolutely delicious! Made sticky Hong Kong style ‘chicken’ with rice and both my partner and I loved them
Patience is rewarding
Wait till fully cooked to enjoy the reward. Don't be put off by the sticky nature at the start

Just chewy hunks of soy, difficult to cook with and really weird texture.
These are not very nice’ I put them in sweet and sour sauce and after tasting one were separated out and left at side of plate.
What does the raw texture matter?
They are mushy and sticky when raw, but fry them and they're absolutely delicious with a good texture. Slight gluten flavour, but one of the best chicken alternatives we've found for a stir fry. Our non vegan friend even commented that he would buy this.

As other reviews have said, this was very sticky in packet. However, this worked perfectly for me as I used a herb/spice rub, so it helped it to stick! I then popped them in the oven. Took a few minutes seperating them with a fork initally but other than that they were really nice.
These are absolutely awful. They stick together to form a big gelatinous lump of awful tasting chewing dough. I cooked them then binned them, was going to make a curry but wouldn't waste a sauce on these. About the worst chicken substitute I've ever had. Please get the Vivera chicken pieces back in stock.
Slimy and mushy- wouldn’t buy again
Definitely won’t be buying these again. I got them because they are cheaper per gram than ALT. They were all slimy and stuck together in the pack, and completely lost their shape when I tried to separate them. Unfortunately even when cooked they basically had the same texture! I couldn’t finish my fajita, it was that bad.
