Maple Mustard Crispy Chick’n Sandwich

Instructions

Step 1:

Start by warming up oil to 350º F

Step 2:

For the Sauce

While oil warms up, start by making your sauce. Combined everything together and set aside.

Step 3:

The Coating

Create your dredging stations. For the dry mixture, combine everything together in a shallow bowl. Do the same thing in a separate bowl for the wet batter ingredients.

Step 4:

Using a spoon, pour small amounts of the wet batter into the dry batter. About 3 tbsp of wet batter or so. Mix the dry batter so there are large bits. This adds texture to the coating.

Step 5:

Using protein of choice (I like to shape my own seitan), coat in the wet batter first, then carefully move to the dry batter. Ensure all sides are coated. Do this again so that it has been coated twice in the wet and dry batter.

Step 6:

Do this same procedure for all the pieces of tofu or seitan. Set on wire rack or plate until oil is ready.

Step 7:

Frying

When oil has reached 350º place the coated pieces in the oil. Cook for 6-8 minutes flipping at the halfway mark. Cooking time is subject to the size of your pieces. The smaller pieces will cook faster than larger pieces. Once they reach golden brown and crispy, they are ready to be taken out.

*Do not over crowd the oil as this will lower the oil temp*

Step 8:

When ready to be removed, transfer back to wire rack or towel lined dish. Sprinkle with salt as desired.

Step 9:

Finish the pieces by spoon with the maple mustard sauce. If the sauce is too thick, heat up for a few seconds in the microwave until it is thinner.

Step 10:

Assemble

Toast the sandwich bun on a greased pan with oil if desired. Assemble the sandwich with the bun, the sauced crispy pieces, pickles, any additional sauces, and top bun.

Step 11:

Serve immediately and enjoy!
