@Thee_Burger_Dude absolutely nailed it with this mouth-watering sandwich. To recreate, you’ll need some Gardein® Chick’n Scallopini filets, flour, Cajun seasoning, plant-based milk, apple cider vinegar, vegan mayo and a vegan brioche bun – or any style bun you’d like! Seriously, go crazy.


  1. Thaw 8 Gardein® Chick’n Scallopini filets (this is for four BIG sandwiches or eight small ones, if you decide to not press two filets together).
  2. Heat up oil for deep frying to 350-375 Degrees.
  3. While oil is heating, prep your dredge station. For the dry, fill a bowl with 1 cup flour plus store-bought Cajun seasoning to taste (about 2 Tbsp). Or, you can make your own using a mix of the following spices: salt, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, sugar, basil, cayenne, chili flakes, oregano, thyme, ground mustard seed, white pepper, allspice and hickory smoke flavor.
  4. For the liquid ingredients, use 1 cup of plant-milk and a Tbsp of apple cider vinegar. Let that sit for a bit so it curdles then add hot sauce of choice to taste (we used about 1/4 cup).
  5. Once the oil is up to 350-375 degrees, press two filets together (unless you want to make smaller sandwiches – perfect for parties, BTW) and dredge in liquid ingredients, then dry and repeat to double dredge. Carefully add the double filet to oil and let it fry for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Let the fried chick’n rest on a plate with towels If you have a cooling rack, place it on top of a cookie sheet with paper towels under the rack for easy clean-up.
  7. For the sauce, simply make a mayo-based sauce using vegan mayo (approximately 1/2 a cup of mayo, a Tbsp of vinegar and some more Cajun seasoning will do the trick)!
  8. If you can get a vegan brioche bun – use those – otherwise, use any bun of your choice. The bigger, the better. Slather plenty of sauce on both buns then add some dill pickle slices and your chick’n filets.
  9. ENJOY! This extraordinary sandwich will be your new favorite after bite one.
