So after going to costco and watching them make chicken bakes thru the window I was like hey I can make that vegan! So I asked the guy sitting next to me for a napkin and a pen and started writing all over the napkin like a crazy person haha. Today the dream was realized when I made the Chick'n Bake and let me tell you I thought it would taste good but omfg it tastes exactly like the real thing! Seriously though you need to make this and it doesn't even take that long to make so you have no excuses.
First you need to make the Pizza Dough for the outside the dough isn't my recipe I found it on VegWeb.
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup lukewarm water (dissolve yeast in luke warm water)
1 tablespoon yeast
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted margarine
Mix all ingredients and leave in bowl while you prepare the filling.
Chick'n Bake Filling
Follow your heart Mozzarella Cheeze
1/4 cup Bac'uns fake bacon bits
1/4 cup Green Onion
Whole Package Chick'n Strips (I use lightlife)
1/2 tablespoon per bake Vegan Ranch Sauce
Preheat Oven to 400' degrees
Grate about a half of the block of cheeze don't put all of the cheeze in the filling bowl put a little bit in a second bowl because your going to need it later. Take the bac'uns and put them into a bowl add a tablespoon of water and warm in the microwave for 30 seconds this just softens them up so they aren't crunchy. Add the softened bac'uns to the filling bowl. Cut the green onion and add to the filling bowl along with the chick'n strips.
Ok so now your going to need the dough cut the dough into 2 pieces and roll it out flat put the 1/2 tablespoon of ranch sauce in the middle of the dough and spread it not all the way to the edges but almost. Then add half of the filling pull the dough over the filling making a pocket then roll don't fold the ends just pinch them a little. Sprinkle a little bit of the cheese onto the top of the chick'n bake and place in the oven until the whole thing is golden brown.
This should make about 2-3 Chick'n Bakes Depending on which size you make them.
