Vegan Fried Chicken

What you need: 

1/2 cup hot water
1 tablespoon vegan "chicken" bouillon powder
1/2 cup textured soy protein
1/2 cup vegan pancake mix, dry
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
other seasonings, to taste
2/3 cup crushed cornflakes
oil for frying

What you do: 

1. Put hot water in a bowl. Stir in bouillon powder. Soak textured soy protein in this liquid for 10 minutes.
2. Mix just enough pancake mix in with the textured soy to make a cohesive mixture that can be formed into patties. Mix in salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you want to use.
3. Put crushed cornflakes in a plate. Dip patties into cornflakes, covering them completely.
4. Heat some oil on medium heat in a heavy frying pan. Fry patties in oil until crispy, turning occasionally.
Serve with a creamy sauce, and mashed or oven-fried potatoes.'

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I am not so sure about TVP.  I got the dry stuff and soaked it just like the recipie described but TVP has this smell, smells like dog food.  Am I not getting the right TVP?  I got mine in a bag at Whole Foods.  I also used real mashed potatoes instead of pancake mix and that was nasty, turned out pasty.  What did I do wrong?  I think that I will try again and use something other than mashed potatoes.

i'm glad i'm not the only one that thinks it smells like dog food! yes, you did buy the right stuff. the mashed potatoes were meant to be dry so that it would be used as a texture purpose (like breadcrumbs).

This was sooooo good! i used panko instead of cornflakes and seasoned the panko in garlic powder, paprika, and pepper. With some leftover pasta and some gravy, my lunch was 'kickin' rad.

This really scratched the itch! We used this for gravy bowls at lunch and turned around and made it for dinner the following night!  :D   

I am soooo sorry!  This comment was for a different recipe. :( please have both deleted if possible.

I made this again for a big Father's Day dinner with veg and non veg (including my dad who is a Texan Die-hard meat eater). Everyone loved it, and my dad ate it and didn't complain! My Mother in Law couldn't stop raving about it for hours. It was great. We will keep this recipe around for sure.

not too bad. Would like to try it with a tempera coat instead of corn flakes next time. I used flour and egg replacer instead of pancake mix.

In my experience, the chunks are quite large and are good for things like sauces, or "chicken" dishes you know, butter "chicken" etc...I prefer granules for patties...but it's a personal thing.

I have a question about theTSP. I'm ready to order it online. Do I want the chunks or granules. I think the chunks would make better patties but I'm not sure. Any opinions?

Couldn't get them to hold together.  Delicious though!
