(Mock) Chick-Fil-A Nuggets
Recipe By: Liz (adapted by Kellye off the cuff)
3 cups Peanut Oil
1 egg replacer
1 cup coconut/soymilk
1 cup soy flour -- or almond
2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp salt
two packages extra firm tofu, cut into bite-sized pieces or a serving of seitan equivalent to two chicken breasts
1. Combine soymilk/coconut milk and egg replacer. Place nuggets in this mixture and refrigerate for at least an hour.
2. While the above is sitting, mix together the flour, sugar, salt and pepper.
3. When ready, dredge the nuggets in the flour mixture. (You can then put the chicken back into the non-dairy milk mixture and redredge in the flour).
4. Place the peanut oil in a deep fat fryer (or large pot) and heat to about 375 degrees. Place the nuggets in the oil once hot and cook til done (about 5-6 minutes).
Makes 5-6 very large servings of nuggets.
Note: Chick Fil A uses a pressure cooker to make these and if you have one they will probably be really good and juicy. To use the pressure cooker, heat the peanut oil according to directions (about 400 degrees). Once steam starts shooting through, cook for about 4 minutes.
Maybe try this? I adapted it from a Chick Fil A nugget recipe knockoff. I'm going to try it myself and see if it turns out.
I think a key element is making sure that breading is similar.
