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.
