Seitan Hot Wings

Recipes for hot wings call for Louisiana-style hot sauce, made with a simple blend of chiles, vinegar, and salt, to give them tang and heat without barbecue-sauce sweetness. Here, mayonnaise and maple syrup tone down the spiciness, and a breadcrumb crust adds extra crispiness.



Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. vegan mayonnaise
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup Louisiana-style hot sauce, such as Frank's Red Hot or Texas Pete
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. maple syrup
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. smoked paprika
Ingredient Line: 
8 oz. seitan, broken into 1-inch pieces
Ingredient Line: 
1 ⅓ cups panko breadcrumbs


1. Whisk together mayonnaise, hot sauce, maple syrup, and paprika in medium bowl. Add seitan, and stir until coated. Cover, and marinate 2 hours.

2. Heat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, and coat with cooking spray.

3. Coat seitan with breadcrumbs. Place on baking sheet, and spray with cooking spray. Bake 15 minutes, flip, coat again with cooking spray, and cook 15 minutes more, or until golden-brown and crispy. Spear with toothpicks to serve.

Comments on this Recipe

want to try these never had Seitan before but going to give ti a try

I've made these a few times already, I haven't had panko bread crumbs on hand, but whole wheat flour mixed with the bread crumbs I had worked just fine. I also used Chipotle Veganaise in substitution of the regular vegan mayo for some added heat. They came out great and are now a regular in this household of used to be wing lovers!
