Ok, so I got a box of these things to try. Are they good? What can you DO with them, besides eat them plain or on a sandwich? I was thinking some sort of "chicken parmesan" type thing...
Any advice would be appreciated!

Sometimes I slice them and I put them on top of a salad. Makes me think I am eating a decadent "fried chicken" salad which I would NEVER order in a restaurant! Add hard boiled eggs and light blue cheese! Yum!!

Hmmm....good idea! I've got lettuce and veggies I need to use....
I've done a chick'n parm with them its pretty good!

chicken parm is GOOD, salad is awesome, but for me there's nothing wrong with a good ol chicken sandwich on a bun with some lettuce, tomato, and bacon. mmm

They sound good. So I'm getting some when I go to the store.

Maybe I'll switch to the chicken sandwich and some homemade fries...I don't have spaghetti sauce anyway. I'll save the parm for the weekend!!!

MMMMM Morningstar makes the best fake chicken EVER! You can do anything with them that you could do with any other type of chicken patty. I've even crumbled them and put them in stir-fries before!

Add a piece of cheese to your chicken sandwich. That will jazz it up. And maybe some light mayo.

Hmm for some reason, I always thought chicken and cheese was kind of gross although I just love mustard with my fake chik'n sandwiches. I've never done anything with them beyond sandwiches though or cut up in a salad.

I love them in a salad too, with honey dijon dressing :)

Well, had my first chick'n sandwich last night. Great!! Having another for lunch today...

I partially thaw them and cut a large horizontal slit through the middle. Then I stuff them with dressing (like you'd put in a chicken or turkey). Then I bake them until they are done in a 350 degree oven, about 20 minutes. Serve with gravy, mashed potatoes and vegetables.

I'm just seeing this thread now. I ate one of those Chick Patties about 5 X a week for lunch the year I was losing. I LOVED them. First I started out eating them on a mini pita with lettuce and tomatoes and onions. Then I kinda gave up bread. I just ate them plain. I had it with a side of a large amount of steamed cauliflower. I've got very fond memories of those things. Definitely helped me to stay on plan - for a long time. I haven't eaten them in a while. I DO need to get them again. Thanks for the reminder.

I put mine on a home made sandwich roll, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, alfafa sprouts and a little stone ground mustard.

I like them, too. I usually eat them with mustard on the side. I also like boca's version and their spicy chick'n patty. The buffalo wings are good. So are the fake corn dogs. And I also like Boca's American flame grilled burger. I try to rotate them with low fat meats.
