This was so very good! I'm new to the vegan thing so I was looking for TVP and couldn't find it and used tempeh instead which could very well be the TVP! But It turned out and I was surprised at how much it tasted like chicken! I will make this again, and yes, some of my nuggets fell apart and some stayed together nicely. I think I am going to try and bake them, like the other reviewer did, next time I make them and see how that works! Great recipe though!
I had such high hopes for these! In the end however they were very crumbly (I got them cooked without a problem, but when I went to stick them with a fork they just fell apart) And the texture just wasn't there. The taste was more potato flake then "chicken - y" This is something I'll probably still fool with a couple of times and see if I can make it work. The mix of tvp and potato just seems like it should work perfectly! Thanks for the idea Prose!
A new favorite! This definitely made me look forward to using TVP more. I ended up using nutritional yeast instead of potato flakes but it worked out great-- packed these babies with protein and micronutrients with pleasant cheesy aftertaste! Added a little Season-All. I had to add some olive oil because it was dry and crumbly at first, it helped hold it together well. I coated in French's french fried onions (hey, the other ingredients were healthy enough.) I followed JenniferM's instructions to bake at a high heat rather than fry. Just D-I-V-I-N-E! Made for Veggie Swap 22.
This was great. It was super fast and easy and to put together. I made a double batch, which quickly disappeared. My daughter liked it a lot and my non-vegetarian mom stole my leftovers. :) I don't like pan-frying things, so I coated a cookie sheet in oil and baked them at 425 for about 20 minutes, turning them after 10 minutes. Thanks for sharing this!
The taste gets 4 stars. However, mine fell apart so I ended up with chicken nugget mush. When I added the potato flakes it seemed too dry, so I added some more water which may be why they fell apart. Next time I'll tweak it a bit and see how well they hold up. I used Lays Kettle cooked salt and pepper potato chips as the crust and they tasted pretty darn good.
