This vegan fried chicken sandwich recipe is AMAZING – just dredge through a vegan milk mixture and crumbs, and then fry in a skillet. Buns with slaw and mayo are truly optional, but oh-so-delicious!
Fried chicken might be something you wouldn’t see on a vegan diet. And in the truest sense of the word, it isn’t. However, this easy vegan recipe makes the entree a possibility in your life again.
How to Make Vegan Fried Chicken Sandwich
This vegan fried chicken sandwich recipe is pretty straight forward and simple to make. It’s a passion of mine to follow the KISS (keep it simple, silly) principle in the kitchen!
And that’s what we’re showcasing today, a vegan version of the Endless Simmer/HuffPo’s series, America’s Top 10 new Sandwiches, Number 5, the Fried Chicken Sandwich.
Low Carb Vegan Recipes
This vegan fried chicken sandwich is one of my low carb vegan recipes. It clocks in with 12g of carb and 3g of fiber, resulting in a net carb balance of 9g per patty.
Of course, the bun will add some carbs so you can decide if you want to go there or not. Eventually I’ll provide you with a vegan low carb bun option as well.
