Chip's lunch: February 9, 2010

I've been browsing the Crepes of Wrath blog lately. There are lots of fun and easy recipes that are either vegetarian or could easily be. I found her Jamaican jerk chicken and adapted the recipe a little with Quorn "chicken" cutlets. This meat analogue feels and tastes a lot like chicken; it's probably the closest of any meat substitute I've tried. We don't buy it often, partly because it's relatively expensive and partly because we try as best we can to eat more "clean" foods. But...this was a special treat, and although it looks kinda funny, it tasted great!

Salad (romaine lettuce and spinach) with Jamaican jerk "chicken," applesauce (with vanilla, evaporated cane juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, Nature Valley granola bar, banana, and PB&J rollups on whole wheat flatbread.


  1. I randomly bought a box of Quorn cutlets a little while ago because I had a coupon, and then I totally forgot about them! I'll have to break them out the next time I need a fast meal.

  2. You'll have to tell me what you think, as far as how much like chicken it is. I haven't had chicken in 5+ years, so I don't think my opinion is entirely accurate.

  3. Have you seen the recipe in my blog for "chicken" patties made at home?

    Try it out! Cheaper than Qorn. http://brannyboilsover.com/2009/05/21/move-over-pork/

  4. I'll have to try that! Definitely cleaner than Quorn.
