This VEGAN chicken fillet roll has everyone in Dublin going crazy
OK, we need this in our lives ASAP.
Whether you're taking part in Veganuary - or being a vegan is your lifestyle choice - then you are going to adore this vegan chicken fillet roll.
A chicken fillet roll is uniquely Irish (honestly, go abroad and if you ask for a chicken fillet roll they'll be all like whut???) and it brings us joy if we're hungover/hungry/just want a chicken fillet roll.
This vegan version was put together by the Vegan Sandwich Company which is in the early stages of creation. However, a trial run of the roll was completed over the weekend and everyone on social media went wild for it.

Comments on Instagram included, "Yes! I can't wait to try this," and "If it comes with a spicy sauce I am in! *I'm in anyway!"
It looks exactly like a chicken fillet roll you'd get from the local deli down the road, but instead it was made with homemade bread rolls, lettuce, tomato, vegan cheese, vegan mayo and the chicken substitute was seitan.
We spoke to Sam, who is behind Vegan Sandwich Company, about the making of the vegan chicken fillet roll, which he said has been quite a long time in the making.
"This recipe has been quite a long time in the making and I've tried just about every meat substitute under the sun.
"Other meat substitutes just didn't quite have the same bite as seitan and for something as iconic as a chicken fillet roll, it had to be perfect. The final product is a herb-filled seitan fillet covered in spicy sourdough breadcrumbs with vegan cheese, vegan mayo, lettuce and tomatoes."
Guys, we actually need this in our lives right now.
