Vegan KFC Dippers

Who needs KFC when you can have vegan KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken-less) at home. I have to say I was surprised at how similar the taste is to original KFC.
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Keyword: chickenless, vegan junk food, vegan kfc

Ingredients

  • 3-6 vegan dippers/pieces I used Vivera
  • 1/2 pint vegetable oil
  • 200 g self raising flour add 2 tsp baking powder if using plain flour
  • 1 tsp ginger `
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp pink/sea salt
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp allspice mix
  • 200 ml plant milk I used soya milk

Instructions

  • Method
    Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
    In a separate bowl pour in the milk and then add (approx) 80% of the dry mix.
    Whisk until you have a batter. Coat the 'chicken' in the batter then coat in the dry mix, repeat by dipping in the batter and then the dry mix. Set each piece aside ready to cook.
    On a high heat in a pan get the oil to a very hot temperature. Test the oil by dropping a little of the batter in the oil and it should bubble and cook very quickly.
    Carefully place each dipper into the oil and cook for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Turn the dippers and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
    Place a couple of sheets of kitchen towel on a plate and remove the dippers from the oil (allowing any excess oil to drain off). Place the dippers on the towel to soak up even more oil. Serve immediately with BBQ sauce. Be careful as they will be VERY hot! Enjoy

Notes

Tip: Make with 'chicken' dippers, strips or pieces available from most supermarkets. You can make large dippers (like I did) or nuggets.
