I wanted to make fried ”chicken” (made of seitan) (Recipe HERE) so I tried a recipe of ”chicken” I found online.. it’s from Post Punk Kitchen, you can find it HERE .

It was a very great recipe that I will make again and again in a multitude of ways.

You should all give it a try!!!

I used mine to make fried ”chicken” and it was more than delicious! It totally fooled Dalie who is the most intense picky eater EVER!!!!!

Servings

8 large ”chicken” style seitan pieces

Ingredients

BROTH

* 8 cups vegetable broth

* 5-6 cloves garlic, coasly chopped

(I use fresh garlic from the local farmer, so the taste of garlic was more strong)

* 2 bay leaves

SEITAN ”chicken”

* 2 cups vital wheat gluten (gluten flour)

* 1/4 cup chickpea flour

* 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

(It’s adding a lot of B12 vitamin)

* 2 teaspoons onion powder

* 1 teaspoon garlic powder

* 1/4 teaspoon salt

* 1 teaspoon dried sage

* 1/4 cup soy sauce

(the real deal, not the super salty kind from the supermarket)

* 1 1/4 cups vegetable broth

* 2 teaspoons olive oil

Directions

* To make the broth, combine the vegetable broth, garlic and bay leaves. Bring to a boil.

* In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients.

* In another bowl combien all the wet ingredients, mix well.

* Stir in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Gently mix, then gently knead the mixture for few minutes until you form a ball of dough.

* Divide the dough in 8 pieces. Stretch the pieces until you form kind of a chicken breast shape. Set aside.

* Once the broth is boiling, reduce the heat. You cannot put seitan in a boiling put otherwise everything will turn into a disater. Your seitan will be ruined. Add the pieces in the pot. Put the lid on but let a small space for the steam to escape (or if your lids have a hole in it, it’s perfect too). Cook/Simmer for around 45 minutes. During the cooking time, you can turn the pieces few times. Also, keep an eye on all that because you don’t want the broth to be boiling again. I had to reduce heat another time to prevent that from happening.

* Once it’s cooked, you can let the seitan cool down in the broth.

* Use in a recipe or store in the refrigerator. If so, store it in a air tight container filled with broth.
