For the best vegan chicken nuggets, skip the store and try these homemade baked vegan nuggets instead. Seitan, often called "wheat meat," makes a surprisingly meat-like vegan stand-in for chicken in these crispy breaded tenders. You can make this easy recipe with store-bought or homemade seitan (see associated recipe). Serve them up with your favorite vegan dipping sauce.
