Gardein sent me some coupons for some free product recently – that made me happy because I just love their products! This time, I tried making something new and different. I was impressed with the chick’n strips, and will definitely be adding them to my list of items to use!


Are you looking for something quick and easy to take to a holiday party? These yummy appetizers come together in a snap!  Another thing I like about them is that they use ingredients that I typically have on hand.  Even your meat eating friends will enjoy this yummy treats made with Gardein teriyaki chick’n strips! Enjoy the leftovers with a salad for a light meal or for breakfast muffins!
