Tempe's Green New American Vegetarian's Secret BBQ Chicken Sandwich beat out competitors nationwide to win first place in PETA's national Best Faux-Chicken Sandwich contest.
Meat-free, faux-chicken sandwiches are springing up at restaurants throughout the country, so People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals decided to find the best.
Faux chicken sandwiches are "healthy, and humane alternatives to a traditional fast-food favorite," PETA says.
The Secret BBQ Chicken Sandwich features soy "chicken" with caramelized onions and peppers in espresso barbecue sauce. It's served hot with vegan mayo and includes a choice of thyme fries, curry pasta salad, tahini coleslaw or fresh fruit.
"The faux-chicken sandwich at Green New American Vegetarian is the real deal because it offers all the flavor of traditional restaurant fare but is associated with none of the cruelty or cholesterol," says Nicole Matthews, PETA vegetarian campaign coordinator.
