I’m pretty obsessed with the vegan curry chik’un that you can get at Whole Foods! Ever had it? If you haven’t, you’re in luck because I replicated it and stuffed it into this curry chik’un salad sandwich.

This sandwich is an amazing back-to-school lunch because it’s nutritious, filling, and easy to chow down on! If you’re looking for even more ideas in the video below I also show you how to make chickpea tuna and edmame mash. Both are equally nutritious and delicious.

Try the curry chik’un salad sandwich with spinach and sliced carrots like I did, or whatever other veggies you like! If you’re looking for vegan lunch inspiration beyond a classic sandwich, check out this post.

Author Lauren Toyota


  • 2 1/2 C chopped unbreaded vegan chik’un (I used about 2 x 170 g packages of Yves meatless chicken strips)
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 C finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 C raisins
  • 1/2 C vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika


  1. In a pan heated to medium, brown the chopped chicken with 2 teaspoons of coconut oil and season with sea salt and ground black pepper to taste. You don’t have to brown the chicken, but I find it brings out a little more flavor. Allow it to cool before mixing with the remaining ingredients.

  2. Mix the chopped chicken with the rest of the ingredients in a dish and store in the fridge for up to 5 to 7 days and make up sandwiches as you need for the week.

  1. My meat loving boyfriend made a sandwich out of this thinking I had started to eat chicken (I have no idea why he’d think that) and he thought it was the most delicious curry salad he’d ever had. I have to admit, it’s the bomb.

  2. I just made this recipe! Delicious! I added extra raisins and celery! I love the extra crunch and sweetness! This is my first, but definitely not my last HFF recipe!

  3. I am really glad I stumbed across this site! Sandwiches are my favorite food and the vegan choices here open up a whole new experience in culinary delight for me. Thank you so much.
