Vegan Made Easy 

This chicken strips recipe makes eating meat-free meals so easy! The Fry’s brand has been around since 1991, and is a family run business that produces plant-based foods that taste like meat. This recipe uses Fry’s chicken strips, that are made with vegetable protein, wheat, and soya. Even though they don’t contain meat, these vegan chicken strips are full of protein and are lower in fat and calories! For this dish, the vegan chicken strips are cooked in a homemade mustard sauce, consisting of wholegrain mustard, vegetable stock, garlic and onion, and almond milk for some vegan creaminess. Corn flour is added to the sauce mix to thicken it up so that it sticks nicely to the vegan chicken strips.  

All the Bells and Whistles, Please! 

These vegan chicken strips are served with braised cabbage, roast baby potatoes, and broccoli. The braised cabbage is made using onion, sugar, balsamic vinegar, red wine, butter, and warm spices such as cinnamon and star anise. The braised cabbage adds a sweetness to the savory mustard vegan chicken strips. Baby potatoes are tossed in olive oil, seasoned with salt and rosemary, and roasted in the oven. Lastly, fresh broccoli is blanched and seasoned, and adds some more nutrition and color to the overall meal.  

This meal will surely be a winner for you if you are vegan or are wanting to go vegan, or even just experiment with meatless meals. Perfect for a weeknight family meal, this dish will delight you with its unique flavors, and possibly even convince you to eat plant-based meals more often!
