vegan chicken pieces

Bed & Broccoli Chickon

Bed & Broccoli Chickon
Recipe type: Mains
  • 2 cups gluten flour
  • 2 teaspoons faux chicken powered stock
  • 4 tablespoons yeast (rising yeast)
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 2 litres of vegetable stock
  • Oil for frying
Seasoning: *Whisk all these ingredients together in a bowl & set aside*
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons faux chicken powdered stock (Massel Stock)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried marjoram
  • 2 teaspoons ground sage
  • 2 teaspoons ground oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (or to taste)
  1. In a large mixing bowl add gluten flour, stock powder & yeast. Whisk to combine
  2. Using your hands, add water & mix quickly until you get a spongy mass
  3. Set aside for 30-40 minutes until it has increased, if not doubled in size
  4. Bring vegetable stock to boil in a wide brimmed pan or deep soup pot
  5. Grabbing a small amount of seitan, cut it away from the mass with kitchen scissors & stretch it out until almost see through. Do not worry if it tears. You do not want uniformed pieces anyhow (a small amount would be approx ¼ cup)
  6. Drop these pieces into the boiling stock separately, turn down heat to a simmer until the seitan starts to solidify slightly & gently turn once during the process. It doesn’t take long approx 10 minutes & do it in batches. Place in a colander to drain as you continue.
  7. In a small shallow fry pan, heat oil to high-medium.
  8. Separate the pieces of seitan or tear them & roll them in the seasoning (recipe provided) and shallow fry until crispy & golden.
  9. Drain on absorbent paper
  10. Can be eaten hot or cold. Will keep in the fridge for a few days or the freezer for up to 3 months

    Hey! I want to make this during the week as it sounds amazing. Question though. With the yeast is it 4 Tablespoons? And is it the granules? Sounds a lot. 🙂

      Hi Angela,
      Sorry about the delay in responding …… been crazy around here lately 🙂
      Yes – 4 tablespoons of the same type of yeast you would use to bake bread. It is a lot, but needed. Enjoy!
      Let me know if you get stuck xx
