Southern Fried Chicken

This is southern fried chicken the easy way.  You could make your own chicken substitute, but the Gardein chicken is awesome and already made. Note, this is not your healthiest dish…:)  But it is vegan.  Each package of Gardein has 4 patties.  I think most people will eat two of these, so this would feed two, or four if you had more side dishes.


  • Gardein Chick’n Scallopini (1 package, at least partially thawed)
  • Vegan mayo (as required)
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper or 1 tsp lemon pepper

Mix all the dry ingredients into a bowl.

Remove Chick’n pieces from package and cover in a coating of mayo.  You can use a brush or your hands.

Dredge each piece in the flour mix.

If you want more batter, add another layer of mayo and dredge again.

Fry each side in a hot skillet with some oil about 5 minutes per side.  For a healthier option (lol)… you can bake the fried chicken in an oven or air fryer.

Serve with mashed potatoes, gravy.
