When it comes to food, I am always searching for healthier and more sustainable options. That’s why I was thrilled to receive a bundle of Tindle plant-based chicken products. As a newcomer to the market, Tindle is quickly making a name for itself as a leader in plant-based meat alternatives.
So what is Tindle Plant Based Chicken made from? It’s a combination of soy protein, pea protein, and wheat protein. Not only is it free from genetically modified ingredients, palm oil, and artificial flavours, but it’s also a healthier alternative to traditional chicken products that can contain additives and hormones. By choosing Tindle, you can feel good about the ingredients you put into your bodies, without sacrificing taste or texture. As someone who is always on the hunt for new food options, I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself.

Recipe / Serving Ideas
Plant Based Chicken Burgers
We made these plant based chicken burgers which look and taste like the real thing.
Plant Based Chicken Nuggets
We prepared a number of dips for the nuggets, including barbecue sauce, mango and a homemade range-style dip. We also used this for these for the wings.
Plant Based Chicken Wings
The plant based wings were perfect for dipping.
Sweet and Sour Plant Based Popcorn Chicken With Rice
We tried something a little bit different with the plant based popcorn chicken by preparing it and mixing with a sweet and sour sauce and serving it with rice.
Plant Based Chicken Tender Wraps
The plant based chicken tenders went perfect in mini tortilla wraps. We used sour cream as a base on the tortillas and added the plant based tenders with salad to the wrap. This was also great with some of the dips we prepared.
Tindle plant based chicken vs Beyond Meat / Impossible Foods / Other Plant Based Chicken Products
Now, let’s compare Tindle Plant Based Chicken to some of the other big players in the plant-based meat industry: Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods. In my opinion, Tindle is right up there with the best of them. While Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods are both great products, Tindle is unique in that it doesn’t rely on genetically modified ingredients or artificial flavours. It’s also a bit more affordable than some of the other options out there.
