Vegan Pesto Chicken

You'll need: extra firm tofu (frozen and thawed), plant-based pesto, ground black pepper, fresh garlic, and vegan chicken bouillon powder

We use our homemade vegan chicken bouillon powder for this recipe, and it creates a beautiful chicken flavor with plant-based ingredients!

First, mix all the ingredients for your pesto tofu marinade in a large measuring cup with a fork or small whisk.

Marinate the thawed tofu in the pesto marinade for at least 1 hour or overnight for the best flavor power!

After marinating, bake the  pesto marinated tofu at 350F for 40 minutes, stopping once halfway through to flip.

Depending on the thickness of the cutlets, how long you froze the tofu, and what brand you're may want to cook the tofu 10-20 minutes longer.

If desired, toss the tofu in extra plant-based pesto after baking. You can also brush the excess pesto on the tofu cutlets before serving.

This Vegan Pesto Chicken is fantastic served all on their own or on a salad, pasta dish, or panini with balsamic tomato jam.
