If Chinese takeout just doesn't provide enough options for you as a vegetarian or vegan, Gardein's Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick'n is a tasty option that you can easily pick up from the grocery store and whip up at home.

The meat-free substitute is made from non-GMO soy, wheat and canola oil, combined with other certified vegan and dairy-free ingredients that are easy to pronounce like organic cane sugar, low-sodium soy sauce, rice vinegar, turmeric and chopped orange peels. What gives the mock chicken its convincing texture comes from a combination of soy plus a variety of plant-based proteins. To prepare, the pack of frozen imitation chicken is comes packaged with a Mandarin sauce packet which can easily be heated on the stove.
