Chick'n Cacciatore

What you need: 

2 cup vegan chick'n tenders (8 oz package) OR tofu OR seitan (whatever you have)
1 large onion, chopped
2 cup mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
1 cup seasoned pasta sauce (or more to taste)
oil
water
mashed potatoes, rice, or pasta to serve it on

What you do: 

I whipped this up for my roommate and she really liked it (enough to say "I'm gonna make this when you are away this weekend!"). I used the Morningstar Farms strips but tofu or seitan would work just fine. Also feel free to use any veggies you have laying around. This dish has an Italian feel to it and zucchini, eggplant, etc would be a good substitution or addition! Just adjust the amount of sauce/water you add to keep it from being too dry or too wet.
Start by pouring a couple Tablespoon of oil in a large pot and placing your "chick'n", onion, garlic, and other veggies. Other veggies are good with this, like broccoli (really, use any veggies you think would be good!). Cook over medium heat for about 5-10 minutes, until chick'n is browned and onions are transparent. Next, add pasta sauce and enough water to make it like a "thin stew"--the water will help everything be coated in sauce and allow the veggies some liquid to cook down in. Place on low heat and cook 10 or so minutes until veggies are tender. If it is too liquidly, cook uncovered. If you want the steam to help you cook, cover it.
This is good served on top of mashed potatoes (the favorite way in the puppy-bobo house!), on rice, or with pasta noodles.

This was delicious!  I wanted to take a picture, but I don't think my cell phone camera would've done it justice.  As suggested by bp, we made some garlic mashed potatoes, and it was the perfect combination!

This is really really good.  I've made it a few times, usually served over rice.  We've also used it as a sandwich filling, on french rolls, which is really really yummy, too.  Thanks for a great recipe!

Absolutely yummy! We added corn to this. I had mine on rice pilaf and hubby's was on spaghetti noodles. Amazing! Even my omni hubby absolutely loved this dish.

Just made this and it was awesome! I used morning star chikn strips, but I think next time I'll use seitan or just baby carrots.  I left the shredded carrots out because I didn't have any, but they would've been a good addition. Perfect flavor and was awesome over mashed potatoes. I'll definitely make this again, sooo quick and easy
