    Reviewer: Kim in California
    * As a vegetarian, I am always looking for ways to up my protein. I have been using Dixie "Not!" meatless products for years. They store well for a long time, added to soups, stews and other meals take on the flavors they cook in and ad a big punch of protein to any meal. Sometimes I just want a bowl of home made chicken soup... Dixie Chicken Not! really brings it home, onions, carrots and other veggies in a chickenless broth.... yum!

    * I would have given this product a 4 or even five stars had I known what I was getting (totally unflavored product) and evaluated it based on those factors. As it was, I was mistakenly assuming that this TVP had a semblance of chicken taste, based on its name and the fact that nothing in the description indicates it is an UNFLAVORED product. Quite disappointed in that aspect of it however, I was very impressed with the texture of this stuff upon cooking and, after adding in a serving of Mckay's vegan chicken soup seasoning, this product was great and I would purchase again now that I know what it is!

    Reviewer: Joseph in Florida
    * This is an excellent product. It works best when used to stretch a recipe that includes some (real) chicken or pork. It then picks up all the flavors in the dish. I have used it for stir-fry, Tex Mex and Italian dishes. I like the bigger pieces in this product as I have found the more granulated products available elsewhere to be unappetizing.

    To get 225 grams of high quality protein for under five bucks is a really great deal.

    Reviewer: Tifa in California
    * This is a great product. I like that it's dehydrated, so it can be stored much longer than most meat substitutes. I season the water (with whatever spices will compliment the sauce I plan to use in the dish) when I make it though, to add flavor. Otherwise, its rather bland. The texture is pretty good; better when made on the stove than the microwave, but good in either case. I haven't eaten meat in years and Chicken Not! makes it simple for me to convert recipes to vegan. I haven't tried it in any soups or stews yet, but it works great for barbecue, stir-fry, street tacos, and pasta dishes.

    Reviewer: Marcy in Texas
    * This was not a happy experience. When rehydrated according to the package directions Chicken Not was soggy, chewy and tasteless with a texture like a latex sponge. The only positive: it looks like chicken, which would be acceptable in the event you only want to stare at your soup but not actually eat it. That being said, as a senior citizen with mobility issues I'm a big fan of TVP products and think they're fabulous additions to a pantry, especially for those times when I want a protein boost in a recipe but don't have any fresh chicken or beef on hand. I've tried other chicken replacement products that were far superior to Chicken Not.
