Remember, chicken itself is fairly flavorless (think of boiled chicken breast).
How did you used to eat chicken? Usually it's the way that it's prepared that leaves a hole in your meal. Try some different meat-analogues until you find some you can prepare that give you pleasure -- not necessarily that taste exactly like chicken, but that taste delicious in their own right. And try expanding your repetoire so you can begin to crowd out the old favorites with yummy new things.
If it's eating out that's difficult for you specifically, then I imagine it depends on where you live. I live near a restaurant called Vegetarian's Paradise that has amazing chicken-esque and shrimp-like dishes that are so close that my non-vegan friends enjoy them. www.menupages.com/restaurantdetails?restau
I wish they gave classes so I could figure out how they do what they do!
My life is irredeemably corrupt.
