Seitan Chicken Fingers: A Fun and Healthy Snack, Cruelty-Free!


Seitan chicken fingers are a delicious vegan alternative to traditional chicken strips. Made from vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, vegetable broth, and soy sauce, these plant-based fingers are packed with flavor and protein. The dough is formed by combining the dry ingredients and then simmering in vegetable broth for a few minutes. Once cooled, the seitan is shaped into tender pieces resembling chicken fingers. To achieve a crispy texture, the seitan is coated with flour and then panko before being fried to a golden brown. Serve these seitan chicken fingers as a tasty appetizer or as a main dish alongside your favorite dipping sauce.

    Let's Begin!

    • In a mixing bowl, whisk the vital wheat gluten, nutritional yeast, onion powder, and garlic powder.

    • Once it has about doubled, remove it from the broth and let it cool.
    • Whisk together the flour mixture ingredients in one bowl and the panko mixture ingredients in another.
    • Once the seitan has cooled, slice the seitan into long 1/2-inch thick pieces that resemble tenders.
    • Either pour oil in a deep fryer to the fill line or fill a large saucepan about 1 inch high with canola oil and heat to 350°F.
    • For each piece of seitan, coat in the flour mixture then the panko mixture, and place in the hot oil.
    • Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes until crispy.
