seitan-chicken-nuggetsUse my recipe for Stir-Fry Ready Seitan or any 1-inch seitan pieces. This recipe goes great with tartar sauce or cocktail sauce!

Serves 4.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 c all purpose flour
  • 2 beaten eggs or equivalent egg substitute
  • 1/3 c cornmeal self-rising mix
  • 1/2 Tbsp vegetarian chicken style broth mix
  • 2 c seitan pieces (1-inch)
  • 1 1/2 c vegetable oil for frying
  • dash paprika

Directions:

  1. Place the flour in a 2-cup bowl. Place the beaten eggs or substitute in another bowl. (I used Orgran Egg Substitute and mixed it with water as per package directions.) In a third small bowl, mix the corn meal mix and broth mix.
  2. Dip seitan pieces in the flour to coat. Next, dip them in the egg mixture. Lastly, coat with the cornmeal mixture.
  3. In an 8-inch heavy, deep skillet or pot, place the oil and preheat on a medium setting.
  4. Working in two batches, carefully lower the seitan pieces into the hot oil, using a slotted spoon. Fry until golden or about 3-4 minutes. Drain in a metal strainer over a bowl.
  5. Sprinkle the drained nuggets with paprika and serve hot with tartar sauce or cocktail sauce.
