Instead of chicken use a large tin of young jackfruit (sometimes labeled as green jackfruit) and drain and press dry
Add to mixer bowl instead of chicken as per step one. Add salt, pepper and 250 grams water
Follow recipe as per original
The jackfruit is even more amazing when replacing the pulled pork!
I marinate the jackfruit in the sauce combined with the dry rub mixed through for 2 hours then cook off a bit 15min/100/slow speed mc off
Drain and pull apart as per the pork
