Carnitas Jackfruit is a HIT!
While at first glance this may look like marinated chicken - it is anything but. It's Jackfruit! Loaded with spices and flavor. Jackfruit is sweet and fruity, and typically has a strong aroma, which is offset by this recipe. Zero fat and high in dietary fiber. I'm a bit surprised the brand doesn't tout that on its package. A 2.65 ounce serving is just 35 calories and you can use on a salad, burger, taco - just about any food you want to add more flavor to. What does it taste like? Plain Jackfruit is like a combo of banana, apple, and mango - with this recipe the chili lime really comes through. Imported from Thailand.
