Meati Chick’n

  1. Lightly season each side of Meati Chick’n with your favorite seasoning. Use seasonings sparingly as Meati Chick’n enhances flavors. 
  2. Heat pan to medium-low and add 1 TBS oil (high temp oils like Avocado, Sunflower, etc. are preferred). 
  3. *Once oil is hot, add Meati Chick’n and sear 5-6 min per side. Cook time may vary depending on equipment. If Meati Chick’n soaks up all oil in first 3 min, add additional oil to pan between flipping. Meati Chick’n will be lightly browned on the outside when cooked.  Always cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.
  4. Remove Meati Chick’n from the pan and let it rest for 1-2 minutes. 
  5. **Slice your Meati Chick’n with a sharp knife. Hold the Meati Chick’n in place with your hand or fork and slice like you would steak.

Herb & Lemon Pasta

  1. Melt buttery spread in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and simmer for 2-3 minutes, until garlic is soft but not browned. Add lemon juice and zest and set the pan aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of well-salted water to boil. Add spaghetti and cook for 7-10 minutes until al dente. Reserve a cup of the pasta water and drain spaghetti.
  3. Return pasta to pot and add half of the butter mixture along with ½ cup of the pasta water. Stir over low heat until pasta is coated and buttery mixture and water form a sauce. Add additional pasta water if needed. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir in parsley.
  4. To serve, divide pasta between four plates and top with sliced Meati Chick’n. Drizzle with remaining sauce and a squeeze of lemon.

 Pro Cooking Tips

*Once oil is hot, for safety, angle the pan so that the hot oil is pooled to the side, then place Meati Chick’n in the pan and return to burner. Sear 2-3 minutes, gently pressing Meati into the pan so it has good contact with the pan. Once Meati is caramelized on one side (caramelization makes the Chick’n taste even better!) angle the pan again before flipping Meati. Sear 2-3 minutes on the other side, again gently pressing Meati into the pan so it has good contact with the pan. 

**Slice your MEATI chicken into thin pieces with a sharp knife. The trick is to slice with a sawing motion with light pressure and let the knife do the work!
