Chicken Seitan [Vegan] – A green planet

Seitan is a must have for anyone learning plant-based cooking and this recipe will show you how to make your seitan feel and taste the same as chicken. Seitan is simmered in broth to achieve a slightly softer texture than you would get by cooking or steaming it. It’s the perfect building block for a myriad of tasty dishes.

Chicken Seitan [Vegan]


For the dry ingredients:

  • 7 ounces of vital wheat gluten
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons mixed Italian herbs
  • 2 teaspoons Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

For wet ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 1 cup of vegetable broth

For the broth:


  1. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients so that they are evenly distributed.
  2. Whisk the wet ingredients together and add them to the dry ingredients.
  3. Stir the mixture well until you have a big sticky ball.
  4. Remove the seitan from the bowl onto a cutting board and knead it for about a minute. Let sit for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Bring the vegetable broth and tamari to a boil. Once boiling, lower the water to low heat.
  6. Cut the seitan into three large buns and add them carefully to the simmering broth. Partially cover the pot and simmer for 45-55 minutes, turning the seitan occasionally. Make sure the pot is large enough to accommodate the seitan as it grows.
  7. Once cooked, drain the seitan and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes until it has cooled slightly. You can now serve the seitan or refrigerate it for later use.
