Vegan Takis Fried Chick'n Sandwich

This might sound like a crazy sandwich, but it’s actually quite simple and easy to make! It’s a basic Fried Chick’n recipe with one little trick. We’re gonna take some Takis and put ’em in a ziploc bag, and then using a tenderizer, we’re gonna crush ’em! Then we simply will coat the Chick’n with ’em before deep frying!


  • Use a heavy bottomed pot (Stainless SteelCast IronCarbon Steel etc)
  • I highly recommend a Deep Fry Thermometer to monitor the oil temp.
  • Use a neutral tasting, high smoke point oil (Canola, Vegetable, Peanut etc.)
  • Make sure to use UNSWEETENED plant milk. I like RIPPLE the best.
  • Add flour as needed to thicken the vegan buttermilk mixture.
  • Shake off the excess flour and batter when you dredge.
  • Fry a test nugget to test the seasoning and adjust as needed.
  • Let the chick’n rest on a Wire Rack after frying to prevent soggy chick’n.


  • Don’t leave the pot unattended.
  • Keep children away from the pot.
  • Don’t fill the pot more than halfway with oil. Don’t overcrowd it as well.
  • Turn the handles of the pot away from you to avoid accidental spills.
  • Keep a lid nearby so you can cover the pot if it catches fire.
  • Never use water to put out an oil fire.
  • Get a Fire Extinguisher just to be extra safe. This isn’t just good for deep frying, but for having in the house in general!

I’m using Gardein Scallopini filets in this recipe, but you could just as easily use my recipes for Tofu Fried Chick’n or my recipe for Fried Seitan Chick’n or even my recipe for Fried Oyster Mushrooms.

  • 2 Gardein Chick’n Scallopini filet
  • 1-2 cups crushed Takis
  • 1/3 cup plant milk
  • 2 Tbsp hot sauce
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp Cajun Seasoning
  • Dill pickle slices
  • 1 burger bun
  • 2 Tbsp of vegan Ranch


  • Bring a pot of oil to 375 degrees.
  • While your oil is heating up, microwave your chick’n filets for 1-2 minutes to thaw them. Combine the 2 filets together by mashing them until they form 1 big patty.
  • Put about 2 big handfuls of Takis in a ziploc bag (I crushed the entire bag of Takis so I'm guesstimating, you might need more) crush them with a tenderizer or hammer, or your hands if you gotta!
  • Prepare your dredging station. Combine the plant milk, hot sauce and apple cider vinegar in one bowl, let it sit for a couple minutes to form the buttermilk. Combine the flour and cajun seasoning in another bowl. Add crushed Takis to a third bowl.
  • Once oil is up to frying temperature, dredge your filet first in the flour, then the wet mixture and then liberally coat with the crushed Takis. Place carefully in oil and let it fry for about 5-6 minutes.
  • Add some vegan Ranch to both the top and bottom buns. Add your Fried Chick'n then top with pickles and the top bun.
  • ENJOY!
