Southern Fried “Chicken”

Difficulty: Easy-Medium

Serves 4-6

When you think of soul food, you immediately think of fried chicken, which isn’t something easily veganised. I think I’ve come pretty close to hitting the nail on the head with this one though; the skewers give each piece a little handle to hold, reminiscent of a drumstick and the combination of spices make this one tasty treat. Because of their size, these are great little morsels to serve at a party or gathering as well.

Ingredients

  • Oil for deep frying
  • Wooden skewers
  • 1 packet, Lamyong Soy Nuggets (or whatever mock chicken you prefer)
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Method

  1. Leave out the soy nuggets to thaw completely.
  2. Cut the wooden skewers in half and heat the oil in either a deep fryer or pan.
  3. In a shallow bowl, combine the soy milk and vinegar. Whisk with a fork and set aside to curdle.
  4. In another shallow bowl or container, combine the flour, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.
  5. Thread three soy nuggets onto each skewer, leaving enough skewer to have a little handle.
  6. Dip each skewer into the soy milk mix, then the flour mix before adding to the oil to deep fry.
  7. Fry for about 8 minutes before draining.
  8. Serve with barbecue sauce.
