I was craving Chicken Chili and since I no longer eat meat I knew I had to be creative. I decided to try my hand using Vegan Chicken chunks! To my surprise my recipe was amazing and my family loved it too. The carrots added just enough sweetness. The Greek Seasoning adds a hint of lemon flavor and oregano. My family couldn't tell the difference with the Vegan Chicken Chunks. I recommend using the Quorn brand because the texture and flavor is the closest to eating real chicken. I hope you enjoy ever how you like with vegan products or real dairy this is a amazing chili!

This was a most delicious recipe.... and so thoughtfully written--an example being to be careful not to burn the garlic (something I am always doing!). To have so many delectable flavors for the taste buds plus to be good for you is a treat indeed. The big bonus for me was to be introduced to the Quorn brand. I had seen this in the frozen section at Sprouts but always passed it by. I almost always am very disappointed in meat substitutes. I followed Ms. Wanda's suggestion and tried their chunks, and she's right--you would never know it's not chicken--except it's more tender than chicken! My husband loved this dish, and was disappointed I had frozen the remainder--he wanted to keep eating it meal after meal. Thank you for giving us a wonderful alternative to a meat based meal without us feeling the least deprived!
