Step 1

Mix the chicken seitan ingredients (the water and the flour).

Step 2

Knead for 10-15 minutes until you get a smooth dough. The dough should feel nice and elastic.

Step 3

Place in a bowl and cover with water. Let it rest for 2 hours.

Step 4

Drain the water from the dough and cover it with fresh water from the tap.

Step 5

Knead for 2 minutes until the water. The water should have a milky colour.

Step 6

Repeat this step, draining, covering with new water and kneading for 6 times in total.

Step 7

The result should be a stretchy flexible dough. This is your seitan. Place it on a chopping board and stretch it a little. Let it rest for 10 minutes.

Step 8

Cut the dough into three long strips and braid the seitan.

Step 9

Now pull the ends gently and stretch your seitan as much as you can. Tie it into a large knot in the middle. Now add another knot again and again until the whole seitan is into a large knot.

Step 10

In a large pot, mix all the broth ingredients.

Step 11

Add your seitan and simmer it for 1 hour.

Step 12

Once the seitan has simmered, remove from the fire and let it cool in the broth, at room temperature, covered.

Step 13

Place it in the fridge overnight in the broth, in the pot.

Step 14

In the morning, drain the seitan and pull it apart to get incredible seitan shreds.

Step 15

Add the shreds to an air-tight container and add the marinade ingredients. Close the container, shake it a few times and marinate for a few hours.

Step 16

You can eat it as it is, add it to foods, sandwiches, fry it, grill it etc! Enjoy!
