Hello friends and not-yet-friends, Welcome back to Mary's Test Kitchen Today, we're taking the best vegan fried chicken recipe and smothering it in sweet and tangy sauce and crunchy pumpkin seeds to make vegan honey butter chicken

It's inspired by the honey butter chicken made by Korean youtuber Maangchi You might remember I mentioned her in my video for how to make kimchi Now, I know what some of you are thinking Chicken is not vegan Honey? Not vegan

Butter? Not vegan either But then again, if you've followed my channel for a while, you know we can veganize practically anything! Why? Because we can and because we want to So first step: make the vegan fried chicken, of course I've made this recipe so many times now, I can make it with my eyes closed So have some of you and you proved with pics; I'll be showing off some of those at the end of this video

If you know this recipe by heart already or maybe you want to use vegan chicken tenders or nuggets from the store, you can skip ahead, just check out the time stamps in the description If you're new here, hi! Welcome! Grab a snack while I explain the process of turning this into this We take traditional or medium firm tofu and freeze it twice Yes, right in the package, don't open it Freeze it solid, let it thaw in the fridge or other food safe method of thawing, and freeze it solid again ASAP

If you want a really detailed explanation of how and why and what not to do or usecheck out my tutorial for vegan General Tso's chicken where I go over the specifics After the second thaw, unpackage the tofu, press it and separate into pieces

You'll rehydrate with double-strength vegan chicken broth Tofu, especially after it's pressed and drained super well, barely tastes like anything And now, it'll take on the chicken flavour of your broth If you haven't found your holy grail vegan chicken broth yet, check the description for some suggestions The important thing is that you like the flavour

I'll prepare the second dredge first because it needs some time to set up In previous fried chicken videos, I used VeganEgg TM, you know, by Follow Your Heart It's just really good in this recipe The best I've tried for a nice crunchy crust But it's not available everywhere so I'll show you how to make this part with ground flax seed

Just mix two tablespoon of finely ground flax seed with water I use golden flax rather than brown flax seeds because it looks nicer and works the same You can also use chia seeds It looks super thin now but let it sit while you prepare your seasoned flour Coat all the pieces lightly with seasoned flour, shaking the excess off

And remember you want to be super duper delicate because this tofu wants to fall apart Place them on a baking sheet Some pieces will fall apart Don't worry Just set them together and they will stick together during cooking

After all the pieces get their first dusting of flour, you should have a good amount of flour left Add some crunch to it in the form of cereal Previously, I used organic sprouted brown rice crispy cereal AKA hipster Rice Krispies Today, corn flakes

Plain Don't use frosted flakes if you decide to go the corn flake route Crush the flakes so you have some smaller pieces, some larger ones By now, the flax should have gelled and now the texture resembles eggs Don't think about what else it resembles

Just dunk each of your coated tofu pieces into it, let the excess drip off, then roll them into the crunchy seasoned flour Again, shake off the excess, and place them on a baking sheet Repeat with all the pieces I'm gonna go the oven fried method today Just lay the pieces out on a parchment lined baking sheet and drizzle over some oil

You can certainly deep fry these Just check out the tutorial for the Best Vegan Fried Chicken linked in the cards or in the description for those instructions Or in the printable recipe as always If you're baking like me, start on the sauce when they are just about to be done If you're frying, just fry first and let the pieces sit on a rack while you make the sauce

In a wok or large skillet, melt some vegan butter over medium high heat I always use Earth Balance because I find it the most buttery tasting but go ahead and use the kind you like Then add garlic and cook until it's just starting to turn colour Less than a minute Immediately add sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice or vinegar and vegan honey

What is vegan honey, you ask? There are a few kinds on the market which I'll link in the description But you can also make your own out of apple juice, sugar, and a smidge of lemon It tastes very honey-ish with a touch of apple flavour My tutorial is linked in the cards and the description Or you can skip trying to replicate honey and go with agave syrup, maple syrup, or any kind you like

Whatever you decide to use, stir everything well to combine If your vegan chicken is already ready to go, let the mixture come to a boil If not, turn off the heat until it's time to take the vegan chicken out of the oven The oven fried stuff is so beautiful! Sure, nothing beats deep fried for taste and texture in my book, but gosh, oven fried comes super close with way less work and clean up afterwards Okay back to the sauce

Once it starts to boil, turn the heat down just so it can simmer a bit without bubbling over for about a minute It'll get syrupy At this point, turn off the heat Add your hot vegan chicken and pumpkin seeds and fold to coat Finally, transfer your vegan honey butter fried chicken to a wire rack

The rack is nice to prevent the pieces from steaming and getting soggy Then taste and add salt if you like Maybe some cayenne pepper or Korean pepper flakes Up to you There are no rules! And that's it! I hope you try this sticky, delicous, garlicky, sweet and tangy vegan chicken recipe
