    I make these meals whenever I have no time to cook, and try to stay away from processed foods. I would like to see a product that is minimally processed coming from Gardein (organic would be really nice, too). On the other hand, this recipe is delicious.

    I am obsessed with this recipe! Please check out my first experience making this and the great photos of prep and finished product. We are new vegetarians and my family LOVED this meal. This may just be a Wednesday staple in our home from now on! I will be blogging weekly, using many of your products and recipes featured on your site. Thanks so much for such a great product!

    Hi – I made this recipe last week but used the mandarin crispy chick’n (without the sauce) instead of the scallopini. I quickly browned it until crisp and when mixed with the sauce, it stayed nicely crisp and crunchy. Really Excellent!!! Thank You

    What can I substitute for the white wine in this recipe?

      Hi Sharon,
      You can also use vegetable stock – enjoy!

    Garden is now my FAVORITE food company. They make fixing a quick dinner super easy!

    Garden is the BEST vegan food company for fast, easy dinner entrees.

    In my humble opinion, “processed” in healthy food circles gets an undeservedly bad rap. Alternatives to beef, chicken and turkey do not grow in nature,they need to be “fabricated” from natural ingredients into palatable and easy-to-prepare meal components. Companies like Gardein really help more and more people become vegan, and I personally enjoy every Gardein product I have used.with the confidence that I am exercising a healthy option every time. I hope the company does not become spoiled by success and raise its prices even higher, which would really be a shame for the healthy eating movement.

    Love Gardein, but I can’t find most of your products. Our local stores only carry the same limited products – which are good, but it’s just not possible to eat Beefless Tips five times a week. I haven’t seen Chick’n Scallopini in any local store for years.

    Will definitely be trying the Scallopini Picatta, looks delicious ! Love the Gardein products, and have been buying the Gardein brand for years. My personal fave remains the Turkey Cutlets with Gravy, but am definitely looking forward to trying the Scallopini Picatta, as soon as it becomes available at my store.

    I have used Gardein products and they are the best. I look forward to receiving more recipes.

    great stuff!!!!!

    The recipe states “Return scallopini to pan and coat with sauce” but doesn’t state when the scallopini should initially be removed from the pan.

    I love these products.

  18. Rene |

    I’m new to your product, and am so pleased to say the 7 grain crispy cutlets made a delicious salad this weekend! Looking forward to many more scrummy meals 🙂

    Love being healthy, thanks for the opportunity!

  20. Arnold |

    The last step says to return scallopini to pan but there is no mention of removing the scallopini.

    1. laurel |

      Hi Arnold,
      We have made the correction to the recipe instructions. Thanks for letting us know!

  21. Joy |

    What can I use to replace the capers in this recipe?

    1. laurel |

      Hi Joy,
      You could use chopped olives or pickled onions.
      Hope that helps!
