Southern Fried Vegetarian Chicken Nuggets - Because Chickens Are Our Friends!


Recommended Posts

@RegalChicken - This one is for you...


1 teaspoon salt (or seasoned salt)

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon black pepper

Optional: dash cayenne pepper

1 1/2 cups flour

Optional: 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1/4 cup mustard

2 tablespoons baking powder

1/2 cup water

1 lb. seitan (or another chicken substitute, cut into 1 to 2" square pieces)

Steps to Make It

1) In a medium to large bowl, mix together the salt, onion powder, garlic powder, flour, black pepper, cayenne and nutritional yeast.

2) In a separate small bowl, whisk together the mustard and water. Add 1/3 cup of the flour mixture to the mustard mixture and combine well.

3) Add baking powder to the flour mixture and combine well.

4) Coat pieces of seitan or mock chicken with the mustard batter, then coat each piece with the dry flour mixture.

5) Fry chunks of "chicken" in the oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet for 3 to 5 minutes, turning once until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel, serve with ketchup, ranch dressing, honey mustard, hot sauce or barbecue sauce (or whatever you would like for something like chicken nuggets or fried tofu) and enjoy!

Tip: If your chunks are turning brown or black rather than a crispy golden brown, your oil is probably too hot! Reduce the heat a small amount and try again.

Thanks for posting this! I have a child who is transitioning to a plant based diet and I’ve been trying to add to my recipes for him!
