Ok – these things were so delicious – I was almost unable to keep from eating them all as I photographed them. They take 5 minutes and can be eaten as is or packed into a sandwich or taco. They would go really well with my Spicy Vegan Sriracha Miso Cole Slaw, seen above.
As always, I used Beyond Meat brand chicken because it is, quite simply, the best on the market. Click that link to use their store locator & get a coupon.
These could be baked but I think that really only works for real chicken as the grease in the chicken would keep it moist. Faux chicken, like I used here, I think, is better served stove-top & it is faster & easier that way, anyway. These suckers are REALLY good – I promise!
5-Minute Vegan Burnt Brown Sugar Chicken Fingers
Feeds 1 or 2 – depending on appetite
1 9oz bag of vegan chicken strips – thawed
2 TBS olive oil
1 TBS brown sugar
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
1-2 TBS agave nectar
If you have a nonstick pan – use it. Burnt sugar is a pain to clean. If you don’t have one – maybe up the olive oil a tad.
Mix all the ingredients (except the chicken) – reserving 1 TBS agave nectar – in a bowl. Put the mixture in the bag with the chicken & mush it all around until all the strips are covered.
Again – use either a nonstick pan or a pan greased with some olive oil & cook on medium high, stirring occasionally, until the sugar just begins to blacken. Toss with another TBS agave nectar to moisten things up a bit & serve!
