Review

Morningstar Farm’s Chik’n Strips comes very close to the real thing. How? The texture resembles that of chicken. Try cooking these with your favorite seasoning, or sauce! These strips will take on the taste of the favor that it is paired with! So, try them on a pizza, or in a barbeque sandwich.   Be creative with these.  You will find unique ideas on the Morning Star website!

Enjoy!
