Storing - Vegan chicken burger will last in the fridge for 3-4 days, and in the freezer for up to 3 months. Store them in a sealed container or zip-top bag.
- Do not over-process your mixture. They should still have some texture, not completely pureed.
- For a chewier burger, you can knead your burger mixture for up to 5 minutes.
- Make sure that your hands are damp when shaping vegan chicken patties. It helps prevent them from cracking at the edge.
- Feel free to make 6-8 smaller patties instead of 4 large ones.
Reheating - To reheat, let frozen patties thaw completely in the fridge overnight, or on countertop for a few hours. You can then proceed on to heat then in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or pan-fry them for 1-2 minutes on each side.
To speed up the heating process, defrost them using your microwave's 'thaw' function, before microwaving them on high for 15-30 seconds, or until they are thoroughly heated.
