Vegan Chicken Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 35 minutes


3/4 cup Canned Chickpeas (123g) Drained

1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast (15g)

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Onion Powder

1/2 tsp Dried Thyme

1/4 tsp Coriander Powder

1/2 tsp Dried Sage

2 tsp Vegan Chicken Spice or Vegan Poultry Seasoning

1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard

3/4 cup Vegan Chicken Stock (180ml)

1 and 1/2 cups Vital Wheat Gluten (225g)

For Frying:

Vegan Butter or sub oil

Vegan Chicken Spice to rub into fillets

For Serving:

Fresh Lemon

Fresh Parsley

Sea Salt and Black Pepper


1Add the chickpeas, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, coriander powder, sage, vegan chicken spice and dijon mustard to the food processor along with the vegan chicken stock and process until well mixed.

2Pour this out into a mixing bowl and add the vital wheat gluten. Stir it in with a spoon and then almost immediately get in there with your hands to mix it properly and knead just a few times. You just want it to go from soft and sticky to just starting to become firm.*

3Transfer to a cutting board and flatten it out before cutting into 4 pieces. Wrap these 4 pieces in foil (loosely, they expand while steaming) and place into a steamer and steam for 20 minutes.

4When they have finished steaming, let them cool for a few minutes and then unwrap them from the foil.

5Cut each fillet lengthways down the middle (see photos) so that you have 8 fillets.

6Sprinkle them with vegan chicken spice and rub in with your fingers.

7Heat some vegan butter* and then fry the fillets in the butter, turning over regularly until browned and crispy on both sides. Depending on the size of your pan you will likely have to do this in two batches.

8Serve with fresh parsley and fresh lemon, and a sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper.
