Servings 8 servings


  • 4 Leftover Chicken Thighs Finely Chopped
  • ½ Cup Red or Purple grapes Chopped in half
  • Cup Vegan Mayo
  • 3 Tbsp Vegan Ranch
  • 3 Tbsp Creole Mustard
  • ¼ Cup Red onion Finely chopped
  • 4 Celery stalks Finely chopped
  • ¼ Cup Pepitas Coarse chop


  • First, grab a large cutting board. Wash your celery and grapes. This is the most important part. Properly washing your fruits and vegetables ensures that your food is clean and doesn't contain any dangerous bacteria.
  • Next, finely chop your leftover chicken, fruit, red onion, pumpkin seeds, and celery. Add these chopped ingredients to a large bowl and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl combine your vegan mayonnaise, vegan ranch. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Lastly, pour your vegan mayo mixture over your chicken and mix well. If chicken mixture looks too dry add a tablespoon more of vegan mayo or ranch to taste.
