Do I Have to Make Homemade Vegan Seitan “Chicken” or Can I Use Store-Bought?

You can use store-bought if you prefer! I would recommend buying two bags of the 9 – 10 oz. plant-based grilled “chicken” strips to have the same ratio for this recipe. My preferred brands of vegan “chicken” are the Chick’n Strips by Gardein or the Beyond Chicken Strips Grilled by Beyond Meat. You can often find one or both of these types of vegan “chicken” in the freezer section of some grocery stores or most health-food stores.

However, I prefer to use homemade vegan “chicken” because:

  • It’s cheaper than store-bought vegan “chicken” in most grocery stores.
  • My recipe only uses 4 simple ingredients, unlike the store-bought vegan “chicken” from the freezer section that has a long list of ingredients and preservatives.
  • It’s easy to make and can be made in bulk and frozen for later use.

Notes

*Vegan “Chicken” Substitution: You can substitute another type of vegan “chicken” in this recipe such as the Chick’n Strips by Gardein or the Beyond Chicken Strips Grilled by Beyond Meat. If you use the 9 – 10 oz. vegan “chicken” bags from the freezer section, I recommend buying two bags for this recipe so the proportions of “chicken” to veggies are the same.

**Avocado Oil Substitution: I prefer to use avocado oil for this recipe, but any other similar oil will work such as olive oil, grapeseed oil, canola oil, vegetable oil, etc.

    This was delicious! The blend of spices was perfect. Thought it was very similar to restaurant fajitas, but better than the veggie version they usually have. I made mine with olive oil instead of avocado oil and served with corn tortillas. The only negative thing I thought at the end is that it was a little dry (possibly due to the tortillas), but some vegan sour cream remedied that and added a delightful tang. My family ate the whole thing in one night. Overall, an awesome recipe! 🙂
