So you know we speak highly of breadfruit here right?

Yes, I have several articles about breadfruit, including one speaking to the history of breadfruit in Jamaica and even our own breadfruit pudding! Oh yes!

Not only is breadfruit highly nutritious (packed with carbohydrates, a good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, dietary fibre, antioxidants, iron, magnesium, omega 3, omega 6, phosphorus, and potassium), making  it  extremely versatile.

In my opinion, a breadfruit tree is one of the must-have all backyards, as long as you have the space to accommodate it.

The breadfruit menu items continues to expand, as in addition to the traditional boiled breadfruit, baked breadfruit and roasted breadfruit, there is now:

  • Breadfruit chips
  • Breadfruit flour
  • Breadfruit punch
  • Breadfruit salad
  • Breadfruit pudding
  • Breadfruit bread
  • Breadfruit balls
  • Breadfruit cake
  • Breadfruit drink
  • Breadfruit fritters
  • Breadfruit jam
  • Breadfruit pasta
  • Breadfruit porrige
  • Breadfruit pie
  • Breadfruit smoothie, and even,
  • Breadfruit tea! (breadfruit leaf tea)
  • And the list continues...

It is also said be used in the manufacturing of latex, insect repellent and fabric, that's the power of the breadfruit!

Today, I am going to share a recipe for one of the lesser known uses of this amazing breadfruit with you. It's fried breadfruit chips, Jamaican style!

No, not the roast THEN fry as you probably know it, it's fried green

Jamaican-Styled Fried Breadfruit Chips Recipe


Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 medium sized green breadfruit
  • 3-4 oz cooking oil
  • 3 cups of salted water
  • Paper towel


  1. Cut breadfruit in halves, longitudinally, then further in halves
  2. Remove the mid section, we call it the heart (uneaten portion)
  3. Peel the breadfruit (remove the green outer area)
  4. Cut the breadfruit in thin slices, just thick enough so that the oil can penetrate it to get the crisp.
  5. Place in salted water for at least 30 minutes
  6. Remove breadfruit slices and dry with hand towel/ paper towel.
  7. Heat oil in frying pan
  8. Optional (Fry 2 pegs of garlic and a scotch bonnet pepper, then remove)
  9. Place breadfruit slices in frying pan and fry, reduce fire slightly and flip when first side is turning golden.
  10.  Remove and place on paper towel to remove excess oil.
  11. Serve with your favorite protein item or have by iself as a snack!

See that? Very simple after all :-)
And even better...
