Some Tips:

This vegan chicken yam eggplant recipe is a deceptively easy and “quick” meal to make. The majority of the time spent is basically waiting for the yams to cook. This recipe shows that after a long day at work, and being tired as all hell, you can still make a really healthy, damn near respectable meal. You don’t have to slave away in the kitchen for hours to be a vegan, well not always, anyway.

For the yams,  wrap them in foil as the recipe suggests or bake them. Sometimes I like to cut them in pieces or in half and put them in my cast iron dutch oven. This will yield a dryer yam than the foil, so keep that in mind.

If you are ridiculously sensitive to spicy food, then you can use the regular Boca Chik’n patty. Any vegan meat substitute can be used is this vegan chicken yam recipe, I chose the Chick’n patties because that is what was in the fridge.

I hope you like the recipe.
