Homestyle Vegan Cajun Chicken Fingers

vegan cajun chicken fingers

Going to the Asian supermarket is a lot like going on a treasure hunt – you never know what you’ll discover there. In the refrigerated section, I came across fresh soy sheet knots which I’ve been dying to try but I had no idea what to do with them. Then I came across a recipe from TheVeganRonin for Homestyle Vegan Chicken Fingers that I absolutely had to try.

Oh my gosh, it’s sooo good! So much better than those frozen veggie chicken nugget things. Normally, I don’t like to fry anything at home because of the greasy mess it makes, but this recipe is so worth it.

The texture and taste is spot on. I followed most of the recipe but used the fresh soy knots instead of the dried. And I didn’t have the cumin or garlic powder on hand that it calls for so I left it out and added onion powder instead and it still came out great. It has a nice, spicy, Cajun flavor. Add a couple of sides and it really makes a lovely dinner. Or serve as an appetizer at your next party and impress all your friends.

    I’ve never seen soy knots before, I need to make a trip to look for them! The uncooked knots almost look like fabric. I’m so intrigued!

    If I can’t find them, at least I’ll be able to make your fried wontons from your other post. Thanks!

    Yes, they do look like fabric! I’m not sure how it’s made – maybe instead of blocks, it’s just pressed into really thin sheets? If you do find them, I’m sure you’ll make something great with them!
