Vegan Crispy Chicken with Sticky Rice (Wagamamas)

Vegan Wagamamas Inspired Crispy Chicken with Sticky Rice

This is my take on a Wagamamas style recipe using sticky rice, kimchi, crispy vegan chicken and a homemade vegan egg lookalike. It’s hearty, healthy, full of flavour and vegetables. A great recipe if you’re trying veganuary.

What have I used in the recipe?

VFC ‘Chicken’- I find VFC offer the best recipe for a chicken substitute. This is one of their chicken burgers which I simply baked and sliced to place on top, similarly to how you see Wagamamas style their bowls.

Sticky Rice- I’ve used a short grain rice you’d usually find in a sushi recipe. It’s sticker in texture and works brilliantly in this dish. If you don’t have that at hand, use regular basmati, jasmine or short grain, but stir when cooking to release more starch, this will make it stickier in texture.

Ginger and Garlic- the key to a good base is always lots of ginger and garlic to give a tasty flavour. Don’t be scared to add a few cloves and a handful of chopped ginger to this recipe as the rice will take on lots of the flavour.

To top this recipe I’ve simply mixed vegan mayo with sriracha mayo to give the appearance of having a poached egg on top. This not only looks great when serving, but definitely adds to the dish! Swap for regular sriracha if you don’t have sriracha mayo.
