This Vegan Teriyaki Chicken features king oyster mushroom cutlets wrapped in tofu skin and simmered with a sweet and savory teriyaki sauce.


  • 4 king oyster mushrooms
  • 1 sheet of yuba (tofu skin)
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • Oil for frying

Marinade ingredients:

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

Teriyaki sauce:

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp water


Prepare the mushrooms:

  1. Cut the heads off the king oyster mushrooms. Use the heads for another recipe.
  2. Boil the king oyster mushrooms for 10 minutes, it should turn a darker color. Then transfer the mushrooms to an ice bath.
  3. Use a knife to cut around the king oyster mushroom in a spiral motion until you get a large cutlet. Repeat with the remaining mushrooms, you’ll have 4 cutlets.
  4. Combine all the ingredients to make the marinade ingredients.
  5. Rub the mushroom cutlets with the marinade on both sides and add a thin layer of cornstarch.


Prepare the yuba (tofu skin):

  1. If using dry yuba (tofu skin): rehydrate the tofu skin by letting it soak in hot water for about 5 minutes. Drain the water.
  2. If using fresh or frozen yuba, this step is not needed.


Make the vegan chicken:

  1. Wrap the mushroom cutlets in the tofu skin.
  2. Fry the tofu skin-wrapped mushroom in oil until golden brown on both sides.
  3. Make the Teriyaki sauce by combining soy sauce, sugar, mirin, and water in a bowl and mixing well.
  4. Drizzle the sauce on top of the mushrooms until it comes to a low simmer. Flip occasionally so both sides can absorb the sauce.
  5. When the vegan chicken gets a nice brown glaze and most the sauces are absorbed, remove from heat and transfer to a plate.
  6. Cut the vegan chicken into slices. Enjoy with rice and/or veggies of choice!
