Gardein Chick' Yakitori Skewers

Clients are always asking for good meatless/vegetarian Lean & Green recipes. A client of mine, recently found the Gardein brand in her local supermarket and ask me about their products. They are great!

There are (2) dinner entrees that work for the weight loss phase of the program. They are the Sweet and Tangy Barbecue Wings and the Chicken Strips. The others are all great dinner options for the Maintenance Phase of the Medifast program.

This recipe has been modified to fit the Medifast Lean & Green meal plan.

Servings: 3 

Per serving
1/2 Lean protein
3 condiments


12 gardein barbeque wings (save sauce packs for another use)
  2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or tamari
  4 tbsp. unseasoned rice vinegar
  1/2 cup vegetable stock
  1 packet Splenda or Stevia
  1 garlic clove, minced
  1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger


In a saucepan over medium heat stir together soy sauce, mirin, sake, stock, Stevia/Splenda, garlic and ginger. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until sauce has reduced to ½ cup. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain sauce into a bowl discarding solids in sieve. Set aside.

Preheat grill. Lightly oil grates.

Spay a non-stick frying pan with 2 sprays oil. Heat pan over medium heat. Working with one batch of frozen gardein chick’n at a time, cook, turning occasionally, until starting to brown on both sides, about 4 minutes. Remove from pan to a plate and set aside. Cook remaining gardein chick’n, adding very small amount of oil to the pan if needed.

Meanwhile trim scallions and cut into roughly 2 inch long pieces. Scallions should be about the same length as the width of a gardein chick’n piece. Alternating, thread 3 pieces of gardein chick’n and 3 pieces of scallion onto a wooden skewer.

Brush a light coating of oil over skewers and grill over medium heat for 3 minutes each side. Baste skewers on both sides with sauce and continue to grill while turn often to keep sauce from burning. You may need to move the skewers to a cooler part of the grill.

Grill until skewers are nicely glazed. Remove from grill and serve immediately.

Stay tuned for a great recipe using the Gardein Chicken Strips:)
