Recipe by Chef Joey Z.
I found this interesting recipe on Epicurious. I do like mock chicken so I'm anticipating good things with this recipe. Note I didn't include the separate time to bake the biscuits in the frying time for the chicken steaks.
For the biscuits
- 2 cups spelt flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder (non-aluminum)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon celtic sea salt
- 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast flakes
- 1⁄3 cup vegan margarine (softened)
- 3⁄4 cup soymilk
For the Mock chicken
- 14 ounces vegetarian chicken pieces
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄3 cup cornmeal (organic)
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 cup soymilk (soy is good)
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil (or other light oil)
- 1⁄4 cup vegetarian chicken stock (Imagine is good)
- 1⁄4 cup coffee creamer (Silk plain is really good)

- In a medium bowl mix the flour, baking powder, nutritional yeast flakes and salt together.
- With a fork, blend in the margarine until the mixture is crumbly, then stir in the soy milk and blend well.

- Pour 1/2 cup of flour into a shallow dis and pour the other 1/2 cup flour into another shallow dish and add the cornmeal, paprika, salt and pepper. Pour the 1/2 cup non-dairy milk into a separate shallow bowl.
- Dip the mock chicken into the soy milk then the plain flour. Next dip the mock chicken into the soy milk and then into the season flour cornmeal mixture.
- Add 2 tablespoons of oil to a hot pan and cook 3 steaks at a time. Brown the steaks about 2 minutes per side or until cooked and remove from the pan.
- Add 2 tablespoons more of oil and reheat with remaining steaks. Remove the steaks to a serving platter.
- Add 2 tablespoons flour to the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in the broth and parsley, season with salt and pepper.
