Mock Chicken

This is a great substitute for any recipe which calls for cooked, diced or chopped chicken meat. Freezing tofu gives it a meat-like texture. The process is very easy, but you'll need to plan 72 hours ahead.


  • 1 (12 ounce) package firm tofu


  1. Leave tofu in original package and place in freezer for 72 hours.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a simmer. Place package of tofu in water and allow to thaw, approximately 10 minutes.
  3. When thawed, remove from package, place in a piece of cheesecloth, and squeeze out liquid.
  4. Shred, dice or slice tofu and include in your favorite recipe.

Yield: 2 cups
