Crispy “Chicken” Tacos

Difficulty: Easy-Medium

Serves 6

I remember making these yonks ago and thinking they were dope as! I don’t even know why I hadn’t made them again until the other night but I think the next time will be much sooner. For convenience, I tend to use packet seasoning and sauces for this dish but if you want to be a bit more fancy, I’m not adverse to you making your own. By using the taco seasoning as a coating for the mock chicken, you get a really crisp and smokey flavour that is incredibly tasty.


  • 6 taco shells
  • 3 cups (about half a packet) soy nuggets, chopped in half
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 tomato, chopped into cubes
  • 1/4 head of iceburg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 packet taco sauce
  • 1/3 block of Cheezly, grated


  1. Heat the taco shells in the oven until warm.
  2. In a frypan with a little oil, cook the soy nuggets until golden brown.
  3. Add the taco seasoning and continually stir until nuggets become crispy.
  4. Remove taco shells from the oven and stuff with lettuce and tomato.
  5. Carefully add the soy nuggets before drizzling with taco sauce.
  6. Finish with some grated Cheezly and serve immediately.
