As veganism continues to grow in the UK, the demand for delicious vegan chicken follows!

Thankfully, we continue to be spoilt for choice thanks to high street restaurants, independent eateries and supermarkets.

Both KFC and Burger King’s vegan chicken burgers have taken the nation by storm.

In fact, KFC was awarded ‘best vegan chicken’ in PETA’s Vegan Food Award 2020!

Additionally, iconic brands such as VFC, Linda McCartney and Birds Eye have all launched vegan chicken products in UK supermarkets.

The UK is home to hundreds of independent vegan restaurants and fast-food chains serving up the best vegan chicken.

Our favourites include Temple of Seitan, Really Happy Birds, LD’s Kitchen, and Oowee to name a few!

It’s pretty clear that there has never been a better (or tastier) time to ditch meat and go plant-based!
