Who doesn’t love mashed potatoes, vegan chick’n and BBQ sauce? Combine all three and create this delicious dish with the addition of the Dr. Praeger’s BBQ Chick’n Tenders
Vegan chick’n & mashed potatoes = a beautiful pairing! However let’s ditch the traditional tenders and give them more flavor by including BBQ sauce into the mix. Dr. Praeger’s Grandpa Mel’s BBQ Chick’n Tenders will do just that!
These Chick’n Tenders are apart of Dr Praeger’s Pure Plant Protein Line. All of the products in the Pure Plant Protein line are gluten free, soy free, made with avocado oil, and have hidden veggies! They obviously come packed in protein. Alone, one serving (three tenders) of the Grandpa Mel’s BBQ Chick’n Tenders packs 14 grams of protein.
I have been using Dr. Praeger’s products sine I was a little kid! I was the pickiest eater and the only way my mom could get me to eat veggies was by using their products! I’ve grown up eating their products and its amazing to see how much they’ve expanded (especially this AMAZING Pure Plant Protein line)
I also wanted to add some greens to the mix so I went with Kale! You can totally customize the greens to your liking and use spinach, collards, etc. I also love the addition of sweet corn and some vegan cheddar cheese!
The Grandpa Mel’s BBQ Chick’n Tenders are SO crispy and have a lot of flavor. They taste like they have been smothered in BBQ sauce but they hold their shape and give the perfect crunch which is a great contrast between the mashed potatoes.
If you wanted to add a little sauce, do what I did and simply combine a little vegan mayo with BBQ sauce! You can dip the tenders in for that extra BBQ flavor or just straight up mix it into the bowl (either option is delicious)
I hope that you enjoy this recipe!
