  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 dessert spoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated cheese (optional)


  • Peel tomato and chop. Set aside.
  • Add finely chopped onion to a frying pan and cook until clear.
  • Add butter and tomato to pan and cook well.
  • Beat egg and add to mixture along with herbs. Cook and stir in salt and pepper to taste.
  • Blend a little with a stick blender or chopper if desired to achieve a finer texture or serve as is.
  • Serve cool.



Aunty Judy's recipe tips:
  • Let the mixture cool slightly for about 5 mins, then use a stick blender for a few seconds to create a smoother-textured Mock Chicken
  • You can also add a tablespoon of grated cheese to the ingredients (Nan Mac did this – maybe their generation had times a little better to add the cheese to recipe).
You can serve Mock Chicken as a meal with a side salad, as suggested in Nana Ling's recipe book, enjoy it with crackers, use it as a sandwich filling and more. Get creative! I'd love to hear other ways you serve Mock Chicken in the comments below.
