I didn't originally plan to post a review on these - I was just dying to try them - but when they came out of the oven looking and tasting so beautiful, I figured I'd snap a photo to share with you all. Gardein just released 3 new items; these Chipotle Lime Crispy Fingers, Mandarin Orange Crispy Chicken, and Sweet and Tangy BBQ Wings. I cooked them in the oven, straight on the rack, and my only tiny complaint is that some of the skin stay attached to the rack when I removed them. Otherwise, these things were FANTASTIC!!!
I made myself a little spicy BBQ sauce to accompany them which consisted of Trader Joe's BBQ Sauce, TJ's Jalapeno Hot Sauce, a little balsamic vinaigrette, a smidge of dijon mustard and a tiny bit of A1. It turned out to be an absolutely amazing tasting experience and best of all they were on sale at Ralph's for $3.50! Afterwards I found out that Ralph's has a coupon book in stores right now that allows you to buy them for ONLY $3.00 each!!! I would recommend picking some up immediately! I myself will be spending the next week at a gorgeous beachfront property in San Clemente with many of my omnivore friends BBQing every day, so I will be making a trip to Ralphs on the way down to stock up heavy on these and other magnificent Gardein products. LOVE!!!
Have you ever tried any of Gardein's products? What are your favorite vegan "chicken" fingers?
