Oh. My. God.

I had to take a quick break from work to post how amazing and DELICIOUS Whole Foods’ Mock Chicken Salad is. It is orgasmically tasty. So flavorful and so satisfying! Spectacular.

I want to learn how to make this so badly. What throws me off is making soy nuggets. Seriously, homemade seitan is a nightmare to make. However, the main issue I have with homemade seitan is its vomitous texture: it’s soft, slippery and what I’d imagine whale blubber or brains would feel like.

Here’s the ingredient list for this awesome salad:

  • Soy nuggets (water, wheat gluten), soy sauce (water, soybeans, wheat, salt), garbanzo bean flour, soy flour, salt, ginger oil, aquaresin garlic)

  • Nayonaise (Silken tofu (well-water, organic soybeans, lemon juice concentrate), canola oil, brown rice syrup (brown rice, water, natural fungal enzymes), grain vinegar, prepared mustard (distilled vinegar, water, mustard seed, salt, turmeric, spices), salt)
  • Celery
  • Parsley
  • Green Onion
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

I could stuff this into my mouth by the shovelful. So. Good. :9~

Aaaaand… Edited nearly a year later! ;)

Ginamarie has posted her perfected version of the WF mock chicken salad in the comments below, but I’m bumping it up here for all to see. :D I haven’t tried it yet, but I will report back when I do!

The soy nuggets they use are DELIGHT Soy Nuggets, manufactured out of North Carolina. You can buy them in the frozen nugget section at most Whole Foods. If not, ask them to special order it. It is not organic but is NON-GMO. I have re-created their mock chicken salad to perfection but don’t have to use all of their ingredients. This is all I use:

Chop up ½ of the the defrosted soy nuggets
Then shred the other ½ in your Magic Bullet or Cuisanart. Gives the chicken salad a perfect consistency.
Put both in a bowl and blend in lots of Veganaise to make it kinda wet/creamy.
Add a little tamari (the wheat-free organic one) and then when all is mixed, you can add more later if you need it to taste a bit stronger. It basically gives it a salty, rich taste.
Finely chopped celery, Vidalia onions, parsley, green onions, dash of tumeric, Sea Salt and black pepper
You can add a little mustard if you would normally add that or anything else that you usually add to your chicken salad.
