Rice and Vegan Chicken Stew | My Brother Reacts

Yes, you read the title right - vegan chicken stew!

My brother came to visit me a couple of weeks ago, and like the good little sister that I am, I shoved a camera in his face and asked him what he thought of the Fry's chicken-style pieces that I'd so generously added to our lunch. He's not vegan, you see, and once in a while I try to overly impress him with scarily similar versions of the food he's used to, just to show that being vegan doesn't mean missing out on anything - chicken included.

If you ask me what I think, I adore the Fry's range. I've written reviews about their products in the past and they are largely my go-to for the times I want to use meat substitutes. It's the fact that they are non-GM and contain no artificial preservatives or colours - all the stuff you should watch out for when indulging in mock meats.

The dish itself is simple: fluffy golden basmati rice; stew made from a seasoned blend of tomatoes, red pepper and onions; served with some fried plantain. It doesn't get more Nigerian-classic than that, whipped up in under 30 minutes.

If you like this post, you'll probably also like my recipes for Vegan Beef StewVeggie Buka Stew and Caramelised Onion Stew. So many stews, so little time, or something like that...
