Review: Organic Vegan Chicken Style Pieces by Lidl UK

I was in Lidl a few weeks ago picking up some veggies and I spotted this ‘chicken’ – How awesome! I didn’t know Lidl sold this so I had to buy it.

Clearly marked as vegan and gluten free, this product actually looks like chicken which may be odd to some people but I was keen to try it regardless.

Before cooking, these pieces are slightly squidy like real chicken. If I’m honest, when I chucked it in the pan I thought it was rather dull looking but as it started cooking in a little bit of oil, it smelt absolutely delicious and browned slightly.

I added these into pitta breads with salad and mustard, it was lovely. The ‘chicken’ tastes weirdly real so if you’re not into overly realistic mock meats, I wouldn’t recommend.

I can’t wait to purchase this again. I think it would work well in a vegan chicken Alfredo or a paella.

Have you tried any vegan products from Lidl? What should I try next?

  1. I’ve been wanting to cut down on meat more but it’s quite difficult (and not very cost-effective) cooking for my partner and his little one and then cooking a separate meal for myself. I’m definitely going to head out and grab a few packs of this! Thank you for posting – I shop at Aldi now as it’s closer so have totally missed out on Lidl launching vegan goodies!

    • It’s very good so I would really recommend. I’ve been told they have a few other versions of it too which I haven’t seen. You should look at Tesco & Sainsbury’s own brand vegan options. They have mince etc. which is all reasonably priced. Some of it is so good that my boyfriend (non vegan) even eats it! Hope this helps 😊
