About a year ago, I posted about one of my favorite vegetarian product, Gardein Crispy Tenders. I absolutely adore their whole line of meat-free goodies, but when I came across their Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick’n, I almost started doing cartwheels in the freezer aisle of Whole Foods. Chinese take out is a major weakness of mine, so if I could find a healthier substitute that is still super tasty but a lot lower in Weight Watchers Points Plus, I’d be beyond thrilled. Well, Gardein really came through. This Vegan substitute for the Chinese Orange Chicken that we all know and love is AMAZING. And just 4 Points + per serving! Keep reading to learn more…
Gardein Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick’n
Gardein’s all natural line of products contains no meat, dairy or eggs and is free of preservatives and artificial flavors. Their Gardein Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick’n is designed to taste similar to orange flavored chicken. And their goal is to create healthier foods that are plant based, and taste as close to fast food as possible. I would say that they have definitely achieved this goal! And the fact that they are all pretty low in Weight Watchers Points Plus makes this the perfect quick and easy meal idea for when I need to satisfy a Chinese food craving — fast!! All of their products are delicious…I haven’t tried one that I didn’t like. Find out of any of your local grocers carry their line of deliciousness, by clicking HERE and enter your zip code. Enjoy!
