The ten best vegan chicken brands

From golden nuggets to juicy patties, is catching up to the trend of plant-based burgers.

The traditional hamburger patty was the first product to truly challenge the omnivore status quo. In 2018, the Beyond outsold beef-based patties in some supermarkets, while the introduction of the Impossible Whopper skyrocketed Burger King’s sales, resulting in the chain’s greatest quarter in four years. Vegan beef was the star of the late 2010s, but is the star of the 2020s. Vegan chicken is here to stay, as seen by the growth of store-bought chicken nuggets and the complete vegan overhaul of Morningstar Farms. Here are all of the succulent, tender, golden, and crispy vegan chicken options available in stores and online.

This United Kingdom-based startup is filling in the holes left by KFC’s vegan fried chicken. Now available in the United States, VFC’s collection of delicate, crispy items satisfies cravings for this classic dish. The assortment consists of breaded Chick*n Filets, Bites, and Popcorn Chick*n, which can be ordered online via Vejii and GTFO It’s Vegan.


This venerable vegetarian brand now provides a variety of choices, including kid-friendly dinosaur nuggets (currently only available in the UK). offers Meatless Spicy Patties, Buffalo Dippers, Chipotle Cutlets, Pineapple Chipotle Meatless Chiqin Dippers, and grilled Meatless Fillets and Meatless Pieces in the United States.

Morningstar, the parent company, also offers a variety of vegan-friendly frozen chicken options, from patties to nuggets.

4. Gardein

Gardein dominated veg fests in the early to mid-2010s, leaving vegans and omnivores equally amazed by “how authentic” its vegetarian goods tasted. Despite being eclipsed by some of the more recent food-tech startups, Gardein has maintained a huge and easily accessible selection of options. Gardein offers vegan Chick’n Sliders, Chick’n Scallopini, and Chick’n Wings in a range of tastes, from sweet barbecue to buffalo. If you crave a certain chicken preparation, Gardein likely offers a vegan alternative.


Made by the food-tech company SIMULATE, these golden meaty nibbles seek to be the “Tesla of chicken nuggets.” They are composed of a blend of soy and wheat proteins that replicate both taste and texture. The manufacturer claims that these nuggets are as close as possible to actual chicken, minus the cruelty and harmful environmental impact. Some of the nation’s top shops, including Walmart, Target, and Sam’s Club, carry NUGGS. Additionally, the company produces vegan chicken wings that are ideal for any game day buffet.
