How to make QUICK vegan chicken (15 min seitan)

You can make seitan from start to finish in only 15 minutes. This quick vegan chicken is easy to make and perfect for a fast weeknight meal. I am making this with a sweet and savory sesame sauce, but you could use bbq sauce, buffalo sauce, chili sauce or whatever your favorite flavor is. The dough does not need to be kneaded and comes together in just minutes. It is amazing how great the texture and flavor is of this seitan made so quickly. THIS is how to make vegan chicken – fast. Enjoy!
