Move over pork

May 21, 2009

THIS is the other white meat.  And that’s all I have to say about that.


Chik’n patties – Way better than quorn or Morningstar (6 breasts)
1 cup chickpeas
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup onion, minced
1 tsp rosemary + garlic
1/2 tsp majoram
2/3 cup Vital Wheat Gluten

Puree chickpeas with broth, onion, and seasonings in a food processor.  Add VWG to form a dough.  Portion out dough into chicken breast shaped patties (5) in tin foil packers.  Steam in your basket steamer for about 30 minutes.


After the chik’n patties are steamed, they will be firm.  You can then bake them, grill them, saute them, broil them, boil them.  Fry them.  Skewer them.   Chicken n rice.  Chicken n dumplings.  Chicken Stew.  Chicken Sandwich…

    Hey Branny – I don’t have a basket steamer….any suggestions as to what to do?


  1. Pita is not such a P.I.T.A. « Branny Boils Over
  2. Sub chicken if you must… « Branny Boils Over
  3. Hot Licks Chicken « Branny Boils Over
