No Chicks – Vegan BBQ Chicken Skewers on the grill


  • 2 cups of textured vegetable protein (TVP) or ready-to-cook vegan chicken strips
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or tamari (for a gluten-free option)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for heat)
  • Wooden or metal skewers
  • Your favorite BBQ sauce for brushing


  1. Preparation of Vegan Chicken: If using TVP, hydrate it by soaking in hot water for 20 minutes, then drain and squeeze out excess water. For ready-to-cook vegan chicken strips, cut them into bite-sized pieces if necessary.
  2. Marinate the Vegan Chicken: In a bowl, mix soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, maple syrup, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Add the vegan chicken to the marinade, ensuring all pieces are well-coated. Marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator for deeper flavor.
  3. Skewer the Vegan Chicken: Thread the marinated vegan chicken onto skewers, leaving a little space between each piece to ensure even cooking.
  4. Grill the Skewers: Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium heat. Place the skewers on the grill and cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side, or until they start to get a nice char.
  5. Add the BBQ Flavor: Brush your favorite BBQ sauce over the skewers and grill for an additional 1-2 minutes on each side, allowing the sauce to caramelize slightly.
  6. Serve: Remove the skewers from the grill and let them cool for a few minutes. Serve with extra BBQ sauce, fresh herbs, or your choice of vegan side dishes.

Variations and Serving Suggestions:

  • Spice it Up: Customize the heat level by adjusting the amount of cayenne pepper in the marinade.
  • Veggies Galore: Add bell peppers, onions, or cherry tomatoes between the pieces of vegan chicken on the skewers for added flavor and color.
  • Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce: Mix your BBQ sauce with a bit of vegan honey or maple syrup for a sweet kick.
  • Side Dishes: Pair with coleslaw, vegan potato salad, or grilled corn on the cob for a complete BBQ experience.
