Last night, I ate leftovers for dinner, which, to me, were not nearly as “post-worthy” as what Mal ate. His dinner actually cracked me up because it was such a typical guy’s meal: an enormous plate of white pasta, Parmesan, and butter on top of 4 “chicken” breasts. It was a huge mound of un-colorful food! Mal pretty much ate it all, too!
And, of course, the typical guy’s meal would not be complete without The Champagne of Beers!
So, here’s where Mal dinner was not the typical guy meal. His “chicken” breasts were actually Quorn Meatless and Soy-free Naked Chik’n Cutlets, which are “meat alternatives” made with mycoprotein. Mal loves Quorn’s Chik’n Nuggets, so he was more than willing to try the Cutlets and provide a review for the blog.
- Taste: “Wicked good! It doesn’t taste like real chicken, but it’s good. It’s kind of it’s own thing. These would be great in a chicken sandwich or grilled with BBQ sauce. If you made Chicken Parmesan with these cutlets, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.”
- Texture: “Good texture. Almost the same as chicken. Pretty moist, but not really juicy.”
- Preparation: “Easy. Just brush each side of the cutlets with olive oil and cook in toaster oven for 20 minutes. When they start to look liked grilled chicken breasts, they are done.”
I love Mal’s face in this first picture! He’s such a goofball!
