Serves 2-4 (main or side dish)
30 mins

The inspiration behind this recipe are the sauces from the Canary Islands. Using an air fryer will finish this plant-based chicken skewer dish in minutes, leaving you to imagine you were sunning your feet on the promenade watching the Fred Olsen disembark for Fuerteventura. Dreamy.


  • 1 pack Meatless Farm Plant-Based Chicken Breasts
  • A pack of medium/small skewers, soaked in water for a few hours before cooking (to prevent burning)
  • 2 peppers, chopped into 2-inch square pieces
  • 2 red onions, peeled & cut each into 8 wedges
  • 450g medium-sized potatoes


For the red mojo sauce:

  • Olive oil
  • ½ bulb garlic, peeled
  • 2 red peppers, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded
  • A stale slice of bread
  • Splash of red wine vinegar
  • Salt


For the green mojo sauce:

  • Olive oil
  • 1 bunch coriander
  • ½ bulb garlic, peeled
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • A stale slice of bread
  • A splash of red or white wine vinegar


  1. First off make your green and red mojo sauces by whizzing the ingredients up in a food processor or blender. Split both in half and pop one of each in the fridge for serving time, the other two we will use for marinating.
  2. Next grab a pan and fill with cold water then heavily salt it and place on the hob. In go your potatoes – skin on – and bring to the boil to simmer until cooked through.
  3. Grab your Meatless Farm Plant-Based Chicken Breasts from the fridge, slice both into half lengthways and then into half and half again. There should be 16 pieces. Place 8 in the red sauce and 8 in the green sauce you reserved for marinating. Now chop your veg – red onion and peppers – you could use any quick cooking veg – courgette works well, too.
  4. Time to build your skewers. Alternate MF Chicken and veg until the skewers are full. Also choose skewers that will fit in your air fryer, or if they don’t – snap them in half now.
  5. Drain your potatoes and allow to steam, then toss in olive oil and with the back of a flat spoon, slightly crush them.
  6. Throw the potatoes into the air fryer and layer the skewers on top. Air fry for 10 mins on 180C or until the potatoes have crisped up a bit!
  7. Serve alongside your dipping mojo sauces.
