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?
