My family has always enjoyed Worthington FriChik, a vegetarian product that tastes like tender fried chicken. It’s absolutely delicious in this stew!

* I have used Worthington Loma Linda vegetarian products for many years, and I love them. Recently, I received samples of the newest Worthington Loma Linda products from Atlantic Natural Foods, and in the interest of full disclosure, I have used them in this recipe.
