  • frying pan
  • Freezer Bag


Wet Sauce

  • 3.5 cups almond milk or other plant based milk
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp tony's seasoning or other cajun seasoning
  • ¼ cup cholulua
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper

Dry Sauce

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp tonys seasoning
  • ¼ cup garlic powder
  • 9-12 oz oyster mushrooms
  • 4 cups canola oil


  • Break oyster mushrooms apart until you get the size you desire for your "vegan chicken." I find medium sized pieces work well and still give the "chicken" feel.
  • Wash mushrooms
  • Pour all wet sauce ingredients into ziplock bag. Add mushrooms.
  • Marinate for at least 5 but no more than 24 hours.
  • Coat each mushroom heavily in dry sauce ingredients. I find a mixing bowl or cake pan works well for this.
  • Heat oil on medium high heat in fying pan. Add mushroosm to oil once reaches a good temperature (not too hot).
  • Cover mushrooms. Simmer in oil for about 25 minutes. Flip once around 15 minutes.
