Baked Toficken Nuggets (Vegetarian Chicken Nuggets)
55 mins (prep 25, cooking 30)

I've made these a few times now, with different seasonings, and I think I have the technique down perfectly. The key is to freeze and thaw your tofu before you use it-- this gives it chewiness. I actually freeze all my tofu because I like it this way in all my recipes. For this, I have used poultry seasoning, sazon, Cajun spice blend.. all with good results. Be gentle if you add extra salt, as many seasoning mixes are very salty on their own. Cooking time doesn't include freezing, thawing, or marinating time.
