Comfort Food - Crumbed Chicken Breasts with Veg & Gravy

I am rounding off what seems to be the longest week of my life. 
On the bus trip home I polished off half a packet of Leda Ultimate Choc Chip Gluten Free Cookies I found at my local health food store 'Good Life' which definitely helped, but M & I felt comfort food was necessary tonight. Our go-to for comfort food is always something that includes lots of potato, greens, gravy and something kick ass to tie it all together. Crumbed chicken breast would do quite nicely!

1 1/4 c Gluten Flour
1/3 c Chicken Stock Powder (Massell!)
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Chilli Flakes
1 tsp Paprika
2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 c Water
1 c Soy Milk
2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 tbsp Flax Seed
1 Half Lemon
1 c Panko Bread Crumbs
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Chilli Powder

Freshly ground salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 180deg.
In a large bowl mix gluten flour, chicken stock powder, garlic powder, chilli flakes, paprika and a healthy grind of salt and pepper. Pour in oil and water and mix until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
In a separate smaller bowl whisk together soy milk, oil, flax seed and the juice of half a lemon. 
In a shallow bowl mix bread crumbs, garlic and chilli powder, salt and pepper.
Pull 'chicken meat' out of the bowl and on a chopping board form several small patties, and flatten them out with your hands. Dip into the milk mix, and then thoroughly cover in bread crumb mix, patting the bread crumbs into the meat to stick.
Placed on a lined baking tray and cook for 20 mins until chicken is a light golden brown.
Heat oil in a fry pan and fry the chicken breasts so they are a deep golden brown in each side.
We served these with boiled potatoes (slathered in nuttelex), steamed broccoli, peas and broad beans (blanched), smothered in a mushroom, onion and cracked pepper gravy. A perfect home cooked meal! I also couldn't resist a squirt of Srirachi my chicken breasts as well, that combined with the gravy was delish! 

Anyway we inhaled this meal so quickly we completely forgot about photos AGAIN. So before packing lunches for tomorrow I plated up left overs and took a few snaps:
