DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, stir together the wheat gluten and water until it becomes elastic. Knead dough anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes.
  • Cut into you desired shapes and sizes.
  • In a medium sauce plan, bring all of the broth ingredient to a boil.
  • Add prepared seitan into broth.
  • Reduce heat and cover with lid.
  • Let simmer for 50-60 minutes stirring every 10 minutes, until MOST but not all of the broth has reduced completely, this can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Use chicken flavored seitan immediately in your dish of choice or store in the refrigerator for up to 6 days, or the freezer for up to 6 months. If you use the seitan imemdiately after simmering, it will seem quite soft and tender. If you allow it to cool and then use it in a dish, it will have a bit more texture to it.
