Ingredients
Method

Before you start

Large ovenproof saucepan | 2 large mixing bowls | Deep saucepan | Baking tray | Paper towel | Air fryer (optional)

Ingredients

For the chicken

  • 4 large oyster mushrooms
  • 200ml plant-based yoghurt
  • 80g panko breadcrumbs
  • 50g grated parmesan
  • 200ml vegetable oil, for frying
  • Salt and pepper

For the sauce

  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2x 400g good quality chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp harissa paste
  • 1 tsp soft brown sugar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

For the topping

  • 4 thick slices of plant-based mozzarella cheese

To serve

  • Handful of fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. 1.

    Make the sauce | Peel and dice the onions and garlic | Place a large ovenproof saucepan over a medium heat | Once warm, add the diced onion, garlic and pinch of salt | Mix well and cook for 5-10 minutes until soft | At this point, add the chopped tomatoes, harissa paste and brown sugar | Mix well, reduce the temperature and leave to simmer while you make the chicken

  2. 2.

    Make the batter up | In a mixing bowl, add the plant-based yoghurt and give it a little stir to loosen it up | In a separate bowl, mix together the panko breadcrumbs, parmesan and a pinch of salt and pepper

  3. 3.

    Batter the mushroom pieces | Place each oyster mushroom in the bowl of yoghurt and mix well until well coated | Remove from the bowl and place into the breadcrumbs bowl | Mix well until completely coated in breadcrumbs

  4. 4.

    Fry the mushrooms | Place a deep saucepan over a medium heat and add all of the vegetable oil | Once the oil is hot enough to fry, add the battered mushrooms and cook, constantly changing over sides until all sides are golden brown and delicious | You can also air fry your mushrooms if you’d prefer (cooking time depends on the air fryer) | Once cooked, remove from the oil/air fryer and place onto a baking tray lined with paper towel | Turn the oven to the grill setting

  5. 5.

    Finish in the oven | Place the cooked mushrooms on top of the sauce | Top each with a slice of plant-based mozzarella and sprinkle with pepper | Cook in the oven for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese melts

  6. 6.

    Time to serve | Slice the basil leaves | Once the mushrooms are cooked, remove from the oven and scatter in chopped basil and pepper | Serve immediately
