Ohhhhh my goodness, guys – I have to admit I have outdone myself this time!! So incredibly simple and delicious – the hardest part is allowing it to cool down before you eat it all!! I know a lot of people use garbanzo beans as the substitute for vegan chicken salads but I felt that jackfruit has the perfect shredded chicken consistency! Why has no one ever thought of this before! Or maybe they have and I’m tooting my own horn – toot toot! Everyone enjoy this recipe – I know this will be a staple at the blkandvegan residence. Oh and Fabio approves!

Quick, easy and delicious!!


  • Chick’n
  • 1 can jackfruit

  • 2 springs fresh thyme

  • 1 spring fresh rosemary

  • 2 cloves fresh garlic

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 tbsp vegan butter

  • 1 tbsp vegetable broth

  • 2 – 3 tsp Trader Joes chicken-less chicken seasoning

  • 1/2 tsp fresh pepper

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • Chick’n Salad
  • Veganaise – (enough to cover)

  • 1 tsp mustard

  • 1 spring green onion

  • 1/4th red onion

  • handful of fresh cilantro


  • Chick’n Prep
  • Begin by draining, washing and shredding your jackfruit, ensuring you take out the seed-like buds and just leaving the shredded jackfruit texture behind.
  • Pat dry your jackfruit – COMPLETELY!
  • In a medium skillet, add in your olive oil, butter, garlic, thyme and rosemary and cook until fragrant (about five minutes)
  • Add in your jackfruit and season with your chicken-less seasoning, salt and pepper and cook for about 8-10 minutes on medium heat adding in your vegetable broth halfway through to ensure that its absorbed by the jackfruit. IMPORTANT – YOU DON’T WANT ANY EXCESS JUICES.
  • Place your jackfruit in the fridge for at least one hour – better longer!
  • Chick’n Salad
  • Grab your jackfruit out the fridge and add in your Veganaise (enough to cover your jackfruit) and mustard
  • Chop your green/red onion and cilantro and add to your jackfruit bowl
  • Thoroughly mix and add in salt and pepper to taste!
  • ENJOY! On a sandwich, salad or wrap!


  • Feel free to place chicken salad in the fridge for later use!
