This Vegan Cheesy Chopped Chicken Sandwich is the perfect sandwich to make when you want a restaurant-style meal without the cost! This “chicken” is made of soy curls cooked in a super flavourful sticky sweet & spicy basil sauce, chopped and mixed with vegan cheese. It’s hearty, filling and so satisfying! This tasty vegan chopped chicken sandwich will satisfy all your cravings!
You all know by now that baking is my favourite thing, and I don’t make sandwiches for the blog very often, so today’s recipe really excites me! I really think you will love it! The flavours are so unique but work so well together. I wouldn’t normally think to combine a spicy & sweet basil sauce with cheese, but trust me, it just works!

Okay so back to the recipe…
This recipe concept really reminds me of something you might get at a food truck on a nice summer day. I feel like food trucks always do crazy stuff like this and the food always hits the spot perfectly! A chopped cheesy chicken sandwich just screams summer, so I hope you really love it as much as I do!
This recipe uses soy curls and if you aren’t familiar with them, you can read this post on How To Cook Soy Curls here! Basically they are sold dehydrated. so you just rehydrate them in some vegan chicken flavoured broth (or veggie broth) and then pan fry however you like! I like to coat in corn starch and then fry with olive oil until golden brown. And of course, you need a yummy sauce! The one in this recipe is great but the one in this post is also extremely easy and tasty!
You can buy soy curls at some health food stores or grocery stores! I get ours in bulk at Luminate and you can order online from them too. The most popular brand is Butler soy curls!Print
