When Chickenless Crispy Tenders were first introduced to the tasting panel, the immediate reaction was, “these are tasty… Wait. Did you say they’re meatless?!?” The incredulity validated their quality. Made using soy protein and organic ancient grain flour, the “meat” is legitimately hearty and tender.

But it’s not just about the big names; these seasoned grains bake into a crispy exterior that elevates the eating experience. With 12 grams per serving, they’re an exceptional source of lean protein.
