We teamed up with Ello Products (using their 10pc Meal Prep Set) to create two delicious vegan sandwiches perfect for your work or school lunch.

If you know us, you know we LOVE a good vegan fried chicken sandwich. However vegan fried chicken isn’t exactly school lunch-friendly. So we made a super simple baked vegan chicken sandwich that is delicious both warm and cold.
About Ello Products
For this recipe we used the Ello Products 10pc Meal Prep Set. This set of five glass containers comes with airtight locking lids so you can keep your food fresh for longer. They’re leak proof, stain-resistant and oven-safe up to 425F (with the lid off). The silicone sleeve protects the glass and tabletops and provides a no-slip grip. Plus their microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe! You won’t need another container again.
We’ve been using Ello Products containers and tumblrs for over a year now and absolutely LOVE them. Not only do they have all the benefits listed above, they’re also super cute! The colours allow you to better organize your week’s meals and the glass makes it easy to see what’s inside it. In this recipe we used our container to bake the vegan chicken, which means any leftovers are stored in the same container!
