Plant-Based Pizza: 50+ Tasty Plant-Based Pizza Recipes

Vegan Chicken

Vegan Chicken

Vegan meat products are soooooooo expensive at the grocery store and vegan chicken tends to have the highest price. Even seitan, another chicken-like plant-based protein, costs way more than a package of tofu!

I have made different seitan recipes over the course of my vegan journey and I always found it time-consuming to make. Also, the texture was more sponge-like than meat-like. After years of experimentation, I learned that I needed more protein to achieve my desired texture. After searching for ways to get my hands on a higher protein flour I ended up adding chickpeas to the recipe and was elated with the results.

Do not be off put by this recipes 50 minute cook time. This is part of the simmering process and is hands-off while the dough simmers. Of all of the different vegan chicken recipes I have made, this one is by far the simplest.

I have used this recipe on pizza, in stirfry, with pasta, in salads, and on sandwiches. It is tasty on its own and with any type of sauce. Let me know how you incorporate your vegan chicken into your own recipes!
