We combined our crispy Breaded Plant Chicken pieces with Banza’s Plant-Based Mac to create the comfort-food extravaganza you’ve been searching for all season long. (Pro tip: save this recipe if you’re looking for some plant-based sides this Thanksgiving).
Set a skillet over medium heat and add ¼ inch oil. Once oil is hot, carefully lower frozen Daring pieces into the pan. Cook each side for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Allow pieces to dry and cool on a baking rack or paper towels.
Make Banza Mac according to package instructions.
Place Mac in a cast iron skillet or oven proof baking dish. Mix in a quarter cup of grated vegan parmesan. Top with Panko bread crumbs, black pepper, and 2 TBSP grated vegan Parmesan.
Bake until the cheese on top melts and the breadcrumbs become golden, about 15 – 20 mins.
In a medium bowl, toss Daring pieces in Franks Red Hot Buffalo sauce.
Serve with a drizzle of Franks Red Hot Buffalo sauce for some extra buffalo heat. Enjoy!
