Fried "Chicken" The Vegetarian Way

It's picnic time, y'all! And how about some really tasty Vegetarian Fried "Chicken" to go along with your potato salads? :) Here's the recipe. This recipe really turns out some juicy, delicious tasting yum.

Homemade Gluten Steaks (aka Fried Chicken the Vegetarian Way)

1 1/2 c. Vital Wheat Gluten

1 1/2 c. water

1 1/2 T. Flour

Put flour in mixing bowl. I used my Kitchen Aid with the dough hook attachment. Add water, develop the gluten with sufficient kneading and then let sit for 1/2 hr. Take gluten out of bowl and slice and shape into cutlets (or as I did, in strips) Drop slices of gluten into boiling broth and simmer for one hour.

Dip gluten slices in a mixture of flour, italian bread crumbs,Lawry's seasoning salt and nutritional yeast flakes.

Fry in a small amount of oil.

Broth for Boiling:

5 c. water

3 T. McKay's Chicken Style Seasoning

1/2 c. onion, finely chopped

1 T. celery salt ( I did NOT use that much!)

1 T. Vegex or Savorex (basically a vegetable bouillon cube)

Ok. So The only thing I would change about this recipe is the salt content. I ended up having to rinse the already cooked gluten in cool water afterwards to rid it of some of the salt. I also added a bit more than 5 c. of water to the broth. Other than that.... fabulous recipe and OH so Tasty!!
