I have a buddy who claims that this sandwich cannot exist, because it’s made from meatless chicken. Since chicken is meat, and this chicken isn’t, it can’t exist. That’s all there is to it.
It was delicious while it lasted, though.
I don’t cook often with purchased meat substitutes, but sometimes you just need something quick. These sandwiches come together in minutes and everybody in my house loves them. I usually serve these with fruit.
Chick’n and Avocado Sandwiches
To make chipotle mayonnaise, puree a small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in the blender. Stir about ½ teaspoon of the puree into about ¼ cup of vegan mayonnaise (I like Vegenaise). Taste and add more if you like. Store remaining chipotle pepper puree in a small glass jar in the refrigerator. The puree will keep for a year.
1 8-ounce package meatless chicken strips (I like Morning Star Farm Chick’n Strips.)
2 small Haas avocados, sliced
3 hoagie buns, preferably whole wheat
sweet onion slices
Heat chick’n strips in a small, non-stick skillet until just heated through. Layer strips on buns, top with avocado slices, and serve with lettuce, onion slices and mayo.
