Disclaimer: I meant to post this the other day but alas I did not get around to it. Since it was so yummy, I think it’s still worth writing about.
In my ever-continuing quest to keep as meat-free as possible as often as I can, I bought my first pack of Gardein Chick ‘n Scallopini to give myself something new that wasn’t my normal go-to meal of smoked tofu and seitan.
Since I adore a tasty chicken marsala, I thought chick ‘n marsala would be equally tasty – and I was right.
First, I threw some kale – since I’m on another kale kick – in a pan with some olive-oil spray and began sautéing it as I sautéed some mushrooms in a pan with olive oil and marsala.
Once that started getting where I wanted it to, I put the chick ‘n in the mushroom pan and did each side for about three minutes each after adding some more marsala.
Note: Since I like things a little burnt (and am not a very good cook), my pan was a bit too hot, so the dish ended up not being as marsala-y as I would have liked since most of the liquid ended up burning off. Things to keep in mind for next time, I s’pose.
Once the chick ‘n was singed to my liking, I plated and enjoyed the hell out of two of the pieces.
But twixt you and I, I totally could have housed the entire bag of four … which is kind of ridiculous for how pricy it sort of is. Just sayin’.
But I will definitely get this again – as well as the other Gardein products at my Wegmans. I love how it really does taste like, well, chicken, which is pretty important to someone who’s been eating the real thing for more than 30 years.
And gagged every time she had to touch it raw!
I love that my veg repertoire is growing!
