These were good! I hate that the recipe came from Peta. 😦 Husband ate, get this, THREE of these sandwiches! I thought they were good, but maybe a little dry. Next time I would add some mayo. From what I remember, they do taste like the Chick-fil-A sandwiches somewhat!
Vegan Chick-fil-A Sandwiches
4 vegan chicken cutlets (try Gardein Chick’n Scallopini)
3/4 cup plain, unsweetened soy milk
1/4 cup pickle juice
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
3 cups peanut, canola, or vegetable oil, for frying
Olive oil cooking spray
16 dill pickle chips
Defrost or thaw the chicken cutlets if frozen.
Combine the soy milk and the pickle juice in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.
Combine the flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, paprika, dry mustard, and powdered sugar in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Set aside.
Warm the peanut oil in a small frying pan over medium heat.
Dip a “chicken” cutlet into the wet mixture, coating evenly on all sides. Toss into the flour mixture and coat generously. Repeat with the remaining cutlets and set aside.
Place one cutlet in the frying pan using a pair of tongs. Flip occasionally to ensure even cooking. Allow to cook for about 5 to 8 minutes, or until the outside is crisp and golden brown. Allow to drain on a paper towel. Repeat with the remaining cutlets.
Lightly spray the buns with the cooking spray and place in a frying pan over low heat until slightly toasted.
Place 4 pickle chips on the bottom half of each bun, then top with the fried “chicken.” Serve immediately.
