BBQ Chicken

  • 1 bag vegan chicken (I used Gardein Teriyaki Chick'n Strips)
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 16 oz BBQ sauce - make sure it has no honey or anchovies

Mango Salsa

  • 1 Ripe mango
  • ¼ red onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ lime juiced
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp coconut sugar
  • cup chopped cilantro (10 or so sprigs)
  • handful of chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp chili powder


To Make Chicken

  • Put Chick'n in a bowl top with a few squeezes of BBQ sauce
  • Sprinkle taco seasoning pack on chick'n and stir everything together
  • Let sit for at least 10 minutes to marinate
  • Cook in a heated pan with a little bit of oil
  • Once you get a sear on each side of the chick'n, add BBQ sauce to coat
  • Let it cook with the sauce for at least 5-10 minutes for the sauce to carmelize slightly

To Make Salsa

  • Peel and dice the mango
  • Chop up all ingredients and add everything together into a bowl
  • Assemble ingredients on a warm tortilla. Add toppings of your choice like guacamole, salsa or vegan sour cream:
  • 1 cup soaked cashews
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup of unsweetened vegan milk or water
  • Blend it all together. Add more water as needed to get consistency you desire
