Vegan Sesame Chick’n with Fried Rice & Garlicky Greens

SERVES: 4–6 PREP: 20 minutes TOTAL TIME: 45 minutes

Make your own takeout! Hold the meat, but maximize the flavor.

Mastering your takeout favorites is an easy way to up your cooking skills and give your wallet a break. If you’re vegan and still crave Chinese American-style sesame chicken, or are just looking to go meatless once in a while, we’ve got you. This sesame chick’n has a shortcut of using your favorite vegan chicken nugget substitute as the base, then tossing with a sweet, tangy sauce that you’ll want to drizzle over everything…including the sides of veggie fried rice and garlicky stir-fried greens. This is equally great for a dinner party or meal prep, and everything can be done in one pan—we suggest Pepper’s favorite wok or a large skillet, wiping it out in between each dish. (Just cover and keep the other dishes warm while you wok ‘n’ roll.) Otherwise, you can use multiple pans to get it all done at once.
