To get the chicken texture, all you need is young jackfruit in brine or water! Avoid jackfruit in syrup or ripe jackfruit.

I love jackfruit recipes and even though vegan pulled pork is the most popular recipes to make with jackfruit, it also makes SUCH a compelling pulled chicken substitute! Especially to those carnivores you’re trying to impress with a vegan / plant-based diet!

Along with pulled jackfruit, this recipe uses vegan ranch dressing, vegan cream cheese, and vegan buffalo sauce. Try this Vegan Buffalo Chicken Dip with a side of warmed bread, pita, celery or carrot sticks!


Recipe for Vegan Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

The first thing that you want to do for this buffalo chicken dip recipe is get 2 cups of young jackfruit! You basically want to shred it as people do with shredded chicken or pulled pork.

Next, you want to combine the following ingredients to the pulled jackfruit before we put it in the oven to bake: stir in 1/2 cup vegan buffalo wing sauce (click for my recipe), add 1 cup of vegan cream cheese, mix in 1/2 cup of vegan ranch sauce (click for my recipe), add some chopped green onions and 1 cup of vegan shredded cheese! Mix well!

Once you’re done mixing well, get a bake-friendly dish to hold your dip! Scoop your mix into the dish, put your dish on a baking pan and put it in the oven for 20 mins. Once it’s out fo the oven, add some more green onion and serve your Vegan Buffalo Chicken Dip with a side of warmed bread, pita, celery or carrot sticks!

And voila!

  • Made this recipe on the weekend, and it was a hit! Thanks again for another delish recipe!

  • Delicious! My non-vegan boyfriend said he would never suspect that it was “vegan” in any way. I used to eat the traditional version of this dish quite a bit growing up and I didn’t realize how much I missed it.
    I used “Miyokos cashew cream cheese”, “Drew’s organics” vegan ranch, “chef Hak’s” buffalo sauce, and “violife” Colby jack shreds. All found at wholefoods.
    Definitely making again, thanks for sharing!

    • Wow that sounds soo delicious! Thank you so much for sharing and trying this recipe 🙂

  • WOWZERS! This recipe ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
    I only had JF in brine so rinsed well, soaked, rinsed, shredded, rinsed and patted dry.
    I used kite hill plain cream cheese and homemade ranch, ur turned out perfect!
    My non-vegan husband and in laws liked it too! (Minus the heat).
    Awesome 👏🏼

  • So! This was FABULOUS! I made this on New Years for my very FAR from vegan wife, and she loved it!! I did cut corners slightly, I used Noble Made mild Buffalo sauce and then swapped the vegan ranch dressing for Kite Hill ranch dips, I’ll make this again for sure! Crazy thing is that I am truly not much of a buffalo fan and wasn’t much of a jackfruit fan either but you have changed all that!! With that said, I’ll definitely be checking out other jackfruit recipes you may have!! Love all of your recipes, they never disappoint! Thanks!

  • This was delicious! I used a homemade white bean cream cheese and ranch dressing. This is the first time I ever used canned jackfruit and wow it was awesome! This will be my go-to Buffalo dip recipe.

  • Made this for thanksgiving and my omnivores didn’t miss the meat. It was a huge hit! My biggest suggestions are to use quality cream cheese and shreds. Also, USE THE BUFFALO SAUCE RECIPE THAT IS LINKED!! It really made it. I wish it was a little thicker but wow, so good.

  • Guys, Thanks For sharing this Great Recipe. My Family Loved it. I am definitely sharing this recipe and this website with my friend. Hope they also love it. Thank you again for sharing such a great recipe.

  • Looks good! Will this work in a crock pot?

  • This looks awesome! Would artichoke hearts work as a substitute for the jackfruit?

  • Monica Kay says:

    This was so good! Did not miss the chicken at all!

  • Valeen says:

    This looks amazing! Which brand of vegan cream cheese did you use? Not all are created equal hehe 😊

  • okay I made this wednesday evening and it was amazing! If you love buffalo sauce, you’ll love this! My friend isn’t a fan of Frank’s red hot sauce, but enjoyed this with extra vegan ranch or sour cream on pita bread
