Lazy Girl Chickn Sandwich

Yes, Chickn! Not chicken. That’s how us non-chicken eaters spell it so that we know there’s no actual chicken in the recipe. I don’t eat much vegan meat but I do have it every now and again to change things up.

For this Lazy Girl Chickn Sandwich recipe, I used Trader Joe’s Chickenless Strips (made up of soy and wheat proteins, pea protein, carrot fiber, and a special blend of seasonings). If you have a favorite brand then use that. Most of my recipes are gluten-free but not this one. Most vegan meats are not gluten-free, which is partly why I don’t eat them. I, fortunately, do not have celiac disease- I just choose to minimize my gluten intake for digestion purposes, in general.

One reason why I call this meal Lazy Girl Chickn Sandwich is that is it not very labor intensive. I chose to use sourdough bread for this, which is gluten but it is the next best choice if not eating gluten-free. Feel free to use any kind  of bread you like! This will be a crowd pleaser! Feed your partner, bestie, kids, mom, anyone. It’s so good and full of flavor.

Makes: About 4 sandwiches

Chick’n Ingredients

  • 8oz package chicken-less strips
  • 2 tbsp veggie broth
  • 1 tbsp tamari (or coconut aminos)
  • ½ cup bread crumb
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried oregano


  1. In a mixing bowl add the chickn strips, veggie broth and tamari. Toss.
  2. In a small bowl, add the bread crumb, nutritional yeast, garlic and oregano.
  3. Coat the strips in the bread crumb mixture- pressing the strips into the bread crumb.
  4. In a large non-stick pan, coating it with coconut oil- if desired, add the strips over medium heat. After about 10 minutes turn and toss the strips. After 10 minutes, or until golden, remove from heat.
  5. Divide the strips in 4, or more, portions.

Everything Else

  • Toasted bread of you choice
  • 2 tbsp [vegan] Ricotta (I used Kite Hill)

  • 1 Scallions, per sandwich
  • 1-2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 small handful baby spinach


  1. Add the spicy ketchup on 1 slice of bread  and ricotta, if using, to the other.
  2. Now, add the spinach and layer the tomatoes on top.
  3. Add the strips and top with scallions (you don’t even have to cut the scallions- just removed the ends!).
  4. Close the sandwich, cut in half and enjoy!
