I’m going to say it, I love my McChicken Sandwich from McDonalds. Horrible, I know, but I do! Now, I know it’s not healthy and definitely not something to eat often; but I do crave it often! I need a great substitute that is healthier and a much better example for my kids. Now if you love McChicken sandwiches too; I’ve got a great copycat recipe to help you curb those cravings for the real thing! And it’s all meatless too!
McChicken Sandwich Copycat recipe
I love this copycat recipe because it is so easy to make! And you don’t need very many ingredients either!
- 1 Bun. If you are going healthy, I love the thin multi-grain buns. But our stores were all sold out this weekend so I had to use the typical white buns.
- Sliced Tomato
- Mayo/Miracle whip
- MorningStar Farms® Chicken patty (if you can find a spicy one; they are the best. Our store didn’t have them so I went with the regular)
Now remember how I said this recipe is super easy? Yeah, get ready for it!
All you do is bake the chicken patty as instructed on the box. It makes it crispy on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside. Prepare your bun with a thin layer of Mayo or Miracle Whip. Your choice. Then place the Chicken patty on top.
To garnish in the pure copycat recipe fashion, just add lettuce and a slice of tomato! Want to go more specialized? You can add whatever toppings you want really! The husband loves to add sliced jalepenoes, sometimes cheese. The choices are endless!
Place the top bun on top and enjoy! Super easy and very delicious! And get this; it is a lot healthier. Obviously because it is baked and not fried in grease. But also because it is made from Vegetables and Tofu! Now, before you gag and refuse to give this a chance; let me tell you about it!
I hate tofu. HATE tofu. I have tried cooking with it over and over again, and I just can’t get it to taste good, in a manner than my family will eat. I can hide it in our fruit and spinach shakes and that works well. But that is about it. So let me just tell you, the MorningStar Farms® chicken patties do not taste like tofu! They actually taste like chicken! That is a big issue; and why I love them so much. So now you can put your troubles to rest.
I can’t say much about the burgers or other MorningStar Farms® products, I haven’t tried them yet. But the chicken patties are well received in our house. But like I said before, I prefer the spicy chicken patties when you can find them. They are much more fitting for the copycat recipe than the regular chicken patty. But I couldn’t find them in my store.
