This Mandarin Orange Chick’n Vegan Fried Rice bowl will have you thinking it is the real thing! This recipe takes the richness of sizzling fried rice and combines it with unique ingredients like cilantro, citrus and vegan orange chick’n. This vegan crispy chick’n from Gardein is one of my favorite ‘fake meat’ varieties. Combined with fried rice and a few veggies — this bowl is packed with fiber, protein and tons of crave-able flavor. Try this recipe!

I adore this product by Gardein. A few weeks ago I made a Vegan Mandarin Chick’n Salad with it. So delicious and savory-sweet. That crispy vegan chick’n is simply fantastic. Vegan or not, this is some tasty stuff. Check out my salad..
