Lemon & Herb Quorn Chicken


Simple, tasty, and veggie-friendly! The mix of flavours here are inspired by my few visits to Nandos restaurant as a meat-eater before I became a Pescatarian. They have this really yummy lemon & herb seasoning which I wanted to re-create with Quorn chicken pieces – delicious! 

Prep Time: 5 mins | Cooking Time: 15 mins | Serves:2

Ingredients final

1 teaspoon of rapeseed oil

200g Quorn chicken pieces

1 crushed garlic clove

A pinch of dried chilli flakes

1 teaspoon of paprika

1/2 teaspoon of piri piri spice

1/2 teaspoon of mixed herbs

a few grinds of black pepper

1 teaspoon of water

A few sprigs of fresh coriander

A handful of salad leaves – spinach, watercress, and rocket

Juice of 1/2 lemon



Method final

  1. Add the oil to a pan using a medium-high heat.
  2. Begin to cook the garlic, ensuring you turn the heat down slightly and mix in the Quorn chicken pieces, stirring occasionally.
  3. After a few minutes of cooking, mix in your spices and seasoning – chilli, paprika, piri piri, herbs, and black pepper. Leave it to cook for another few minutes.
  4. Add the water for a bit of moisture which will also help swelter the salad leaves and coriander you now should add.
  5. Once the leaves have sweltered in the heat, mix in the lemon juice and leave to cook for another good few minutes so the flavours mature.
  6. Serve hot with pasta dishes and salads, or use cold as a sandwich filler. Enjoy!
