Here is your new go-to quick and easy summer lunch idea! These Vegan Hot Sesame Popcorn Chicken Bites are sweet, spicy, and take only 10 minutes to make! Made using store-bought vegan chicken bites, tossed in the air fryer for the ultimate crunch! Alternatively, if you have some spare time on your hands – we love to use this recipe for our vegan seitan chicken nugget recipe for that homemade quality taste!
If you’re like me and value foods with a powerful & aromatic taste, that can be made in the least amount of time possible, then you’ll run not walk to the kitchen to try these Vegan Hot Sesame Popcorn Chicken Bites.
Here’s how it’s done!
Here’s the quick and easy rundown on the flavour profile. For me, sweet and spicy have always been one of my favourite pairings. Mix that with the crunchy and juicy vegan chicken texture and we’ve got something I could eat breakfast, lunch and dinner! These Vegan Hot Sesame Popcorn Chicken Bites are no exception!
What’s key here is the sauce. With easy ingredients to find in your kitchen like garlic, soya sauce, brown sugar, ketchup and sweet Thai chilli sauce – these Vegan Hot Sesame Popcorn Chicken Bites are bound to have a powerful taste that’s out of this world! The trick is getting it the right consistency to perfectly coat the vegan chicken; liquid enough to be able to dip the chicken in, and sticky enough that it won’t take the chicken coating off! It’s a delicate science, but watch the pot long enough and it will soon become second nature!
The scoop on the vegan chicken:
So here’s the deal. Some people love a quick and easy recipe that takes no thought or time, but packs a powerful flavour punch to satisfy all the cravings.

Whichever way you prefer to cook, I’ve got you covered with these Vegan Hot Sesame Popcorn Chicken Bites!
For video purposes, I opted to use my favourite store-bought vegan chicken bites. Everyone’s got their personal brand preferences for different dishes, so feel free to use your favourites! These air fryer bites take 10 minutes to make and cook while the sauce gets heated up, so if it’s efficiency you’re looking for, this is the way to do it!
If it’s quality ingredients and a fun process you’re looking for, try sticking to either Liv’s Tofu Nuggets, or seitan chicken nuggets as mentioned above. The taste and texture is delicious, and you will be left with a sense of pride in your dish after sitting down to eat!
