This is most certainly not light fare. But it is delicious, and a good way to end a nice weekend. The original plan was a picnic in the park, which turned into a picnic on our balcony, which then turned into the usual playing video games and eating on the couch. But that's okay, we will always have the park for another time. For our "picnic," I made fried chicken sandwiches on biscuits served with creamy potato salad (made with delicious organic Yukon Gold potatoes) and baked beans. The fried chicken was served two ways: one "original" style, which was simply chunks of seitan dipped in mustard, water, and flour, then coated with a mixture of spices and flour, then fried in olive oil. The other sandwich was a chunk of seitan battered with flour, water, and spices, then breaded with panko, fried, and then dipped in hot sauce. Delicious, and very VERY filling.
The potato salad was simply potatoes, celery, red onion, vegenaise, and a little Dijon mustard and white vinegar.
