Burger King

Vegan Chicken Royale – Burger King’s classic Royale has been given a vegan makeover and it’s just as tasty as the original.

Papa John’s

Not-Chicken Vegan Bites – Although Papa John’s offer an impressive range of vegan pizza, they don’t have chicken-style option (yet). Try their Not-Chicken Vegan Bites – they’re deliciously crispy and dangerously more-ish.

Cauliflower Wings – We know what you’re thinking: how can cauliflower possibly mimic chicken? You’ll be surprised when you try these crispy wings dipped in the Papa John’s hot buffalo sauce.
