Even if you don’t eat meat, you can still enjoy a crispy, chicken-style sandwich that will totally satisfy your cravings for fast food!


  • 1 hamburger bun
  • 2 “chicken” patties of choice (we recommend fried cauliflower patties or seitan patties)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of vegan or regular mayo
  • 1 teaspoon of sriracha or another hot sauce
  • 1 leaf of iceberg lettuce
  • 2 slices of tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. First, start by putting the patties into a toaster oven or onto the skillet for the amount of time instructed on the package.
  2. Then, heat up 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a regular or nonstick skillet. Crack the egg, let it cook for 4-5 minutes, and then cover the skillet for 1-2 minutes until the white has set by the yolk is still runny. Turn off the heat but keep it covered until serving.
  3. Brush the buns with the remaining olive oil and toast in the oven or on the stove.
  4. Shred the iceberg lettuce and leave to the side.
  5. In a small bowl, mix up the mayo and sriracha, taste, and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Finally, assemble the sandwich. Spread the sriracha mayo on both buns, then put down the chicken patties. Follow them with the lettuce, tomato slices, and finally top with the fried egg.
  7. Enjoy!
