Vegan Fried Chicken

This is adapted form a recipe I found on It is really tasty and easy to make! I just made it for the first time today, and I really like it. The texture is a little softer than I think it should be to compare it with Chik-Nuggets, but that doesn't really matter. If you prefer not to fry, I'm sure it would bake well in the oven. I just try to use the oven as little as possible in these hot summer months.

Combine in a small mixing bowl:

1 Tbsp. chicken style seasoning

3/4 cup hot water

1 Tbsp. ketchup

1 Tbsp. Braggs or soy sauce

1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbsp. vegan parmesan cheese

Then mix in:

1/2 cup TVP (textured vegetable protein)

1/2 cup instant mashed potato flakes (or use real mashed potatoes and reduce the water to 1/3-1/2 cup)

Add more water or more mashed potato flakes as needed to make a consistency that will stick together. Then form into patties, sticks, or whatever shape you want. Press into the following mixture:

2/3 cup bread crumbs (approximately)

1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes

1 Tbsp. oil

Heat 1-2 Tbsp. oil in frying pan. Place patties in hot frying pan. Brown on both sides, adding more oil when you flip them, if needed.
