I Made Vegan Chicken Tenders Out Of Grapefruit Peels


oh my god I know what that is tell us well what’s up everybody I’m back a lot of you guys recommended that I try this recipe so today is the day I’m gonna make chicken tenders I had a grapefruit peel it’s all day a matter of time before people just stop inviting me to dinner parties so I saw this recipe first on stash sauce my boy mark I learned a lot from him thank you Mark shoutout to you and then I saw it also on the edgy vegan also shout out to you but today I’m gonna kind of combine the two methods that they used but can we really realistically pretend that it’s a chicken tender I don’t know about that right let’s get to business this is a grapefruit we’ve got the stem on top and I’m gonna be cutting it in half oh no I’m not first I’m gonna peel it okay so these are peels this is the PIP this is really what we’re gonna be using to make these chicken tenders we’re gonna cut you in half Oh would you look at that so beautiful I’m gonna use this spoon and I try to go about halfway or a quarter of the way into the pit so you can just you know get around the nonsense oh my goodness I strive by doing it this way where you get a little bit of the pith it makes it much easier to take it out this is our finished product yay next I’m gonna cut these once more in half I’m gonna make little incisions in the grapefruit peel on the sides just like an inch or so and this is so the cutlets and like flat instead of curving up now I’m gonna dip these in some apple cider vinegar and what this is supposed to do is to help neutralize the bitterness and then I’m supposed to let it sit for a minute I’ve got some vegetable broth here I’m gonna put these in here and I’m gonna let it sit for an hour ooh wow that is Szalai me on the inside oh I don’t know how I feel about these here we are get you in there now I’m gonna you oh wow now the next step is to rub these down with some minced garlic and then cover them with salt and pepper I’m gonna say this much and no longer resembles fruit yeah I don’t know looks like some kind of dead thing so I think I’m on the right track since I’m making this vegan I can’t use eggs to bread these so instead what I did is I have a vegan mayonnaise to help kind of bind the bread crumbs to the grapefruit so that we get a nice even fry so I’m gonna mix my vegan mayonnaise some water and some canola oil if you’re not vegan and you don’t care you can bread this any ol way that you want so now for the breading mixture I’m going to add a little bit of parsley you can do fresh you can do dried whatever you feel like on that day and I’m gonna add a little bit of garlic powder because although I rubbed these down with some minced garlic I think it kind of flew all over the place and who doesn’t love garlic so like the more the merrier and then I’m gonna add some salt because it’s all alright Wow look at these creepy alien chicken cutlets things these look like something I’m feeling curious and hopeful and a little worried all right I’m gonna bread these thoroughly oh yeah we’re getting somewhere this is headed in that direction I like it really feels like it feels like a chicken breast gonna bread all of these and that’s all of them it’s time to deep fry these and then we could so I want this to be at 365 be very careful when you’re working with hot oil I’m gonna do these for about a minute on each side that’s a satisfying stout look at that oh that’s an interesting color I don’t know man this looks a little weird all of this breading is falling off this does not look like a chicken breast what the hell is that this is unacceptable I’m gonna do a little bit of problem-solving here and I’m gonna double bread it okay this is looking better already take two oh my god I think it might’ve worked it looked like a chicken okay so I’m gonna finish frying these now that I think I’ve got a little bit of a handle on things and then I’m gonna try it it’s good a great I just slaved away trying to make this look like chicken now it’s time to see if it tastes like chicken I hardly know I want to finish eating this Oh boom guys I kind of want to spit it out that is so gross like that is so bad that is so bad why are they putting this online for people to try and try to tell people this day’s good cuz this doesn’t taste good it tastes very much like grapefruit covered in vegan mayonnaise and bread crust this isn’t good I’m still gonna feed to my coworkers I’m gonna see what they think and let’s let’s just enjoy their pain right let’s just let’s just watch them react to this because this is this is this is that this is bad fun game are you okay yeah three oh you’re moving over here no I’m over here okay three two one go oh okay oh my god what is that this looks like chicken katsu this is really chicken parmesan yeah you’re lying no it looks like salmon to me this is a chicken parmesan yes why not [Laughter] whoa salmon I don’t think I ever want that again I’m so sorry thank you why is this so sour can’t believe you made me eat that bitter yeah sure is Oh heard your throat closed that’s so overwhelmingly strong dude I swallowed it the thing is I want to guess what it is but in order to do so I have to take another bite no I mean that’s just something you may have to commit to Orange is it orange juice I’m gonna look at it maybe that will help is it helping nope this is definitely sweet potato I recognize that fruit that the hints of that from somewhere she’s so happy about this oh my god I know what that is much like her man peppermint is it lemon it’s not carrot is it pomegranate mmm tangerine hibiscus yeah now a pump nut mousse that’s great for you yeah pumpkin lucy’s there we go okay I knew I tasted like some type of yes yes great food I’m not gonna say it’s bad no no I’m gonna say it’s bad I didn’t like it I’m gonna eat it yeah y’all made me nervous oh sorry kind of bad it’s pretty it’s pretty bad it’s pretty it’s pretty bitter it kind of tastes like that like that that citrusy taste stays on your tongue like that that relative that doesn’t want to leave the house it just stays even though it’s fun presence is unwanted I agreed I liked the the grapefruit qualities of it like I did yeah I did I like the texture it had it’s such a fresh quality and then you’ve got like a lot of the heavy fried elements with it so chip is like this is like a crunchy chip just Charbroil it let’s be honest there we go you kind of written cuts it for me oh that was great I can’t wait for whatever else you makes okay I know what it is just gave me a for effort okay so b4 bitter this is done yeah let’s just let’s burn that this was a real treat you know as always I mean life is about yeah you know Death Comes muscle [Music] [Applause] [Music]

    Not sure if anyone mentioned this, but grapefruit/certain citrus fruits interact dangerously with many medications/please double-check before eating it yourself or serving to others.

  2. Always Fabulous

    How about having a cultural week? recipes by different cultures altered to be fully vegan, a meal & a dessert?

    ****OMG those YOU BETRAYED ME faces of her coworkers hahaha****

    Are you bored? Stop trying to make vegan food into meat you gave up eating. Eat the real thing or eat a carrot. Stop trying to turn a carrot into meat. Wtf

    To all the vegans in the comments, thats not real chicken thats grapefruit peel, i wouldnt call chicken pieces as soybean pieces lol, your brain is starving

  5. Angie Cheung

    There are people whom use pomelo peels to make dishes but it requires multiple two to ridden the bitterness and not many people do that now so the recipe is kinda lost

    This amazing in how you made vegan chicken out of this👍🏻. I watch edgy vegan too😊 I would love for you too watch my vlogs on vegan food 🥘 and tell me what you think 💭 of course everyone is welcomed to watch the Vlogs I did ✌🏻😀👍🏻

    i think the grapefruit would have worked better as a chicken nugget rather than a 'tender' because if you grinded it, mayhaps the taste and shape would be less conspicuous. but who knows, i ain't even making it so…

    This was not made to be vegan, it was invented in Cuba bc people were starving and wanted immitation meat. She also made it wrong, she was supposed to take all the orange looking part off. Then she had to soak it in water overnight to get the bitterness off.
