And NO CHICKEN’S were killed to make it!! This is one for the recipe vault folks! Your children, grandchildren and even adults will love this recipe.. and it’s quick and easy!! Your kids and grandkids will ask for these over and over..so much better than those pressed chick nugget things at some fast food joint! And so much better for them!! And well, let’s just say if you don’t tell them it’s tofu.. I won’t mention a thing!!! Sometimes the less they know..they better they eat!
Give these a try…and let me know what you think!!!
Mix The better than bouillon as follows:
Measure out your “Better than Bouillon” base into a small mixing bowl;
– break or mash up the base with a fork or spoon so that it is not one big glob;
– add a very little bit of boiling water to moisten the base and stir,
– keep adding just a little bit of boiling water at a time to the base mixture and stir
If you add “too much” water at one time to the base mixture,
the water and the base tend to remain separated.
Adding just a little bit of boiling water at a time enables you to use mechanical force with your stirrer to better get the water absorbed into the base mixture.
After you mix up enough to “cover” your Amount of Firm TOFU….put it in a container that is sealable… Next take the TOFU about you want to use.. I used about a quarter of my block. Only because I didn’t want to eat tooooo many of these….believe me I would of ate them all ..they are that good!! You can buy TOFU that is already cubed for you ..or if you bought the whole block of TOFU..cut the amount you want off the block..putting the rest back in some clean water and in the frig covered… Take you TOFU and cut into chunks.. and put into the Bouillon broth you have already made up. Let this marinade at least four hours and it is best , if you can let it marinade overnight. After you have marinated it… pat it dry with some paper towels… this is a important step..we want to get some of the extra moisture out of the TOFU… Once this is done..you are ready to dredge into the flower mixture and spices…I used 1 cup of flour …2 Tab Black paper..2 Tab paprika…a dash of salt..I also used a little Texas seasoning from Tex Joy…I dredge the tofu, let it sit for about five minutes and then dredge it again… in a frying pan on the stove I placed..a small amount of refined coconut oil. This is best sometimes the regular coconut oil is a little too strong for frying. Get your oil nice and hot and start dropping in the Floured TOFU pieces...now just like “fried” chicken.. it takes time.. using a medium to low heat..let the tofu pieces brown..I used a wooden spatula and moved the tofu over once on each side.. this takes patients..but it will be worth it.. once the TOFU is golden brown ,remove from pan and drain on a paper towel…serve immediately..you can use any dipping sauce you fancy.. I like mustard with a little honey for mine.. I hope you enjoy these.. please write and let me know how you liked them! And don’t forget to like my blog so you can follow me!!
