This dish used to be one of my favorite dishes before going Vegan and I'm so happy I can now enjoy this spot on cruelty free version! Give it a try and see for yourself.

A chicken cutlet stuffed with a veggie ham and cheese, then battered and baked to a crispy perfection, and served with a delectable creamy sauce.

Ingredients:

1 package of Quorn Vegan Chik’n Cutlets

½ cup water

2 Follow Your Heart Vegan Eggs, whisked

2 cups Ritz crackers, crushed well-seasoned with salt

Sauce, recipe below

In a large frying pan whisk your water and chicken-less broth together

Heat over medium high

Add in your cutlets and cook for 5 minutes until heated thoroughly

Turn off heat and let sit for 5 minutes

Remove from liquid to cool

Once cooled, carefully cut a slit into the side of your cutlets to make a pocket

Stuff with 1 slice of cheese and 1 slice of ham

(Don’t over stuff, it should close up pretty good)
