Satay ‘Chicken’ Skewers

Difficulty: Easy

Makes about 14 skewers

Some vegetarians and vegans are a bit freaked out by mock meat. I’m not. Some meat-eaters are freaked out by mock meat. My friends aren’t. I had them around recently to enjoy a vegan feast and these magical sticks went down a real treat. They’re great to serve with rice and/or salad for a meal or as finger food for a party.


  • 14 wooden skewers
  • One bag soy nuggets or mock chicken, thawed
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated nuts
  • 1 tablespoon chilli flakes


  1. Soak the skewers in warm water for half an hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 200°C and grease a baking tray.
  3. Thread 4 to 5 pieces of mock chicken onto each skewer and lay on the baking tray.
  4. Spray with oil and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the mock meat begins to brown.
  5. While the skewers are cooking, place the peanut butter in a bowl and slowly pour in the coconut milk. You may want to add a little more or less to get the consistency you desire.
  6. Stir in the chilli flakes and nuts (save a few nuts for serving).
  7. Heat either in the microwave or on the stove top until hot.
  8. Remove the skewers from the oven and place on a serving tray.
  9. Pour the satay sauce over the top and sprinkle with remaining nuts.
  10. Serve and enjoy!

    Wow I just discovered your blog and it is AMAYYYZING. I’m not a vegan but I’m slowly making changes to eat better – I have no idea where to get the mock chicken you feature in this entry, is there a store I can buy it from in Melbourne? Thank you x

      Hi Anna!

      Thank you so much, glad you like it 🙂

      I buy my ingredients from my local Asian supermarkets in Newcastle. If there’s something I want that they don’t have I just take in a picture of it and they usually track it down and get it in for me because they’re massive legends! The brand is Lamyong and this is the product. Maybe take a look at your local Asian grocer and ask if they can get some in for you!
