Vegan Orange Soy Curl Chicken

Orange Soy Curls (1)

Quoi? Two soy curl recipes in a row??! You probably think you won the lottery! Maybe you did. All I know is that I made this dish last night and it was so good, I had to share it right away. It wouldn’t be fair to make you wait weeks for it.

Last night I asked Tom the question he dreads every day – “What do you want for dinner?” He dreads it because it’s so hard to choose but I always ask in case he wants something specific or if I can’t think of what I want either. He said he felt like Chinese food so I started the brown rice cooking while I tried to figure out what to make.

Asking Tom if he wanted soy curls was really not necessary because he always enthusiastically says yes. Who wouldn’t? Butler Soy Curls are amazing! I’m working on my 100 recipes with soy curls and this dish is definitely in my Top Ten.

I’ve made vegan orange dishes before – J'ai fait ce Vegan poulet à l'orange avec des courgettes Noodles, Orange hoisin Tofu aux noix de cajou, Orange Balsamic BBQ Tempeh with Cheesy Polenta, et Vegan Orange Soy Maple Sticky Tenders. Je aime la combinaison d'orange avec des saveurs salées profondes comme le vinaigre balsamique, hoisin sauce and soy sauce. The orange brightens up the salty umami flavors and it’s so delicious.

This time I wanted to make a more authentic version of the classic orange chicken dish which meant I had to make the “poulet” part crispy. Il suffit d'un peu de poudre d'arrow-root ou de l'amidon de maïs pour y arriver. Je poêlé les boucles de soja en poudre d'arrow-root assaisonné. It made a really crispy exterior and I had to control myself to not just eat them all straight out of the bowl.

Since I wanted this to be a one-pot dish (except for the brown rice cooking in its own pot), I did everything in stages. First I made those amazingly crispy soy curls. Then I steamed the broccoli. Next I sauteed a bunch of veggies. I used what I had so the mix consisted of scallions, haricots verts, poivrons, carrots and celery.

After the veggies were done and transferred to a bowl, Je ai fait la sauce. It’s just orange juice, jus de citron, rice vinegar, tamari, aromatics and a slurry made of arrowroot powder and water. I add more orange juice than most recipes call for. Je veux dire, it’s orange “poulet” so why so little orange juice and so much lemon juice? I want it more orange-y. The sauce gets thick really fast once you add the slurry so you have to get those soy curls (ou ce qu'il en reste d'entre eux) back in the pan quickly. Toss to coat the soy curls in the sauce and you have the most decadent orange flavored “poulet” ever!

Then I tossed the mixed veggies in the sauce too. The steamed broccoli was served separately just so everything wasn’t covered in sauce – not that that would be a bad thing.

This Vegan Orange Soy Curl Chicken is sweet, épicé, sticky and delicious. It was declared a “favori” last night so I know I’ll be making this again. Jouir de!

    Salut Rhea, just recently found your blog. I really enjoyed this recipe! I’ve made many stir fry sauces that were missing something, but yours has it all; even the kids approved. I like to soak the soy curls in hot vegetable broth rather than water for a little more flavor throughout. Imagine Vegetarian Low Sodium No-Chicken Broth is my favorite and I stock up when it’s on sale. I put the soy curls in a bowl, pour the veggie broth over them just to to cover, then microwave for a couple of minutes and let them soak for ten more.

      Salut Kristen, I’m so glad you liked the recipe. I use broth on soy curls too sometimes especially when I want a real chicken-ish or beefy flavor. Merci! xoxo

      Great idea Rhea to use arrowroot powder, a little goes a long way to give food the glistering effect without much oil. I made this and loved it, so satisfying! Soy curls are in my diet a lot because of its texture. Merci Rhea!

        Thanks Jennifer. I love soy curls too. One of my very favorite foods. xoxo
