LOS ANGELES — Plant-based chicken producer Daring Foods has launched its first line of frozen entrees.

The meals are aimed at health-conscious consumers seeking convenient and easy plant protein options. Daring’s gluten-free entrees contain 16 grams of protein, between 350 to 460 calories and are ready to serve after less than four minutes in the microwave.

“We’ve always been on a mission to transform the category by offering delicious plant-based options that embrace diverse tastes and dietary preferences,” said Ross Mackay, founder and chief executive officer of Daring. “Our latest frozen entree bowls represent a significant step forward in redefining plant-based cuisine while staying true to our commitment to authenticity and simplicity.”

Each frozen entree features one of Daring’s unbreaded chicken alternatives, formulated from soy protein concentrate, and varieties include:

  • Daring x Fly By Jing Fried Rice Plant Chicken Bowl — a spicy fried rice-inspired meal with white rice, peas, carrots and Daring’s Original Plant Chicken topped with Fly By Jing’s Sichuan Chili Crisp sauce.
  • Spicy Fajita Plant Chicken Bowl — a white rice bowl with roasted peppers and onions, a spicy fajita rub and Daring’s Cajun Plant Chicken.
  • Teriyaki Plant Chicken Bowl — a blend of broccoli florets, Daring’s Teriyaki Plant Chicken and teriyaki sauce on a bed of white rice.
  • Harvest Plant Chicken Bowl — a mix of brown rice, kale, roasted sweet potatoes, Daring’s Original Plant Chicken and a chimichurri sauce.
  • Penne Primavera Bowl — a gluten-free pasta option with peas, roasted peppers, zucchini and Daring’s Original Plant Chicken.
Four of the flavors are now available in nationwide retailers like Sprouts Farmers Market, Publix and Target, and the Fly By Jing collaboration is available exclusively at Target stores.
