Vegan ‘chicken chunks’ with peanut sauce

Don’t be misled by the name! Yes, these ‘chicken chunks’ are vegan! We aren’t really into ‘meat’ or ‘fish’ replacers like vegan scampis and such, but these soy based chunks from Dutch company The Vegetarian Butcher are really yummy. And very easy to use in all sorts of dishes, from stews to woks, or on sates or as filling in wraps.
Do they taste like chicken? I can’t really tell, because – luckily – it’s been so long since I’ve actually tasted chicken. But I can say that we have served these to family and friends when having them over for dinner, and without exception everybody likes them, both the texture and the taste.

Big advantage is you can find these vegan chicken chunks in Delhaize, one of the largets supermarket chains in Belgium.

We served this recipe as an appetizer, for 4 persons. So each person gets two satays. Or you can serve it as a main dish, with rice on the side (for 2 persons).

satays vegan chicken chunks, with peanut sauce

Make 8 satays, each with 4 pieces.
Fry them in a pan, flip sides occasionaly, till edges start to get slightly golden brown (app. 5-10 minutes).

To make the peanut sauce:

  • 4 tbs soysauce
  • 4 tbs rice vineager
  • 4 tbs rice syrup
  • 1/2 tbs ginger powder (or 1 + 1/2 fresh ginger)
  • 1/2 tbs garlic powder (or two cloves fresh garlic, minced)
  • 1 ts cayenne powder
  • 1 cup peanut butter (250ml)

Mingle all ingredients.
Slowly add boiling water and mingle, till the texture is to your linking: not too firm, not too soft.

We served these with fine haricots beans (from our veg garden!).

Ready to serve!
