The Vegan Hot Maple Ranch Nashville Chicken Sandwich is stacked with a juicy cutlet of deep fried seitan, fresh lettuce and ranch mayo, topped with a hot maple glaze!


For the Sandwich:

  • 2 hamburger buns
  • 1 cup finely chopped lettuce
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayo
  • 2 tbsp ranch seasoning
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter

For the Chicken Patties:


  • 1 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp chickpea flour
  • 1 cup vegan chicken broth or vegetable broth


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose or whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp paprika salt & pepper to taste
  • 21/2 cups broth for simmering
  • oil for frying

For the Hot Maple Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tbsp water


  1. Make the Chicken: Whisk together seitan dry ingredients until combined. Add the 1 cup of broth and stir until it forms a dough ball. Knead a few times with your hands until dough has no dry spots.
  2. Add the rest of the broth to an instant pot. Divide seitan into two equal chunks and flatten into a “chicken breast” shape. Add to pot. Cook on “manual” for 15 minutes. Once it is done, quick release steam.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together breading ingredients.
  4. Remove seitan from pot and carefully dip in breading mixture until thoroughly coated.
  5. Heat a large frying pan with a good amount of oil. When hot, add seitan and fry a few minutes per side until crispy and golden brown. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess grease.
  6. Make the Hot Maple Glaze: Whisk together Hot Maple Glaze ingredients and set aside.
  7. Make the Vegan Ranch Mayo: Whisk together ranch seasoning and vegan mayo and set aside.
  8. Make the Sandwich: Spread vegan butter on each bun. In a medium frying pan over medium heat, add the two buttered bun halves. Fry until lightly golden brown and crispy. Meanwhile, drizzle the glaze on all sides of the chicken.
  9. Begin to build your vegan Hot Maple Ranch Nashville Chicken Sandwich by layering the bottom bun, 2 tbsp ranch mayo, shredded lettuce, and seitan chicken patty. Top with extra ranch mayo sauce and close the sandwiches.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
