Have you guys ever see this picture with this fortune?
Oh man, it makes me laugh every time!
The other night, Greg was home and I decided to make us "not real chicken" chicken for dinner.
I've used meat-free options before, like meat-like veggie crumbles, so I figured it was time to give the chicken substitute a try.
This dinner was really easy and came together in about 20 minutes. Win!
I just used the oven directions to cook the "chicken", which was basically just cooking it in the oven with sauce (plus I added cheese to make it "parm style"). Then, I threw together leftover pasta and spaghetti squash, with a little extra tomato sauce. Plus some grilled zucchini for my veg.
The verdict? We liked it. It definitely tastes a little different than chicken, but it's a pretty good substitute, and wonderful if you are feeling lazy about cooking like I was that night!
What other meat-free options have you tried? Any recommendations? I've seen BBQ "tips" and tofu sausages. I've wondered how they are...
