Earlier this year I went on a binge with slow cooker Buffalo Chicken recipes. And then so you wouldn’t think the blog is only about buffalo chicken recipes, I’ve forced myself to wait a few weeks before sharing these Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Low-Carb Collards Wraps with Blue Cheese Coleslaw. This time you can get a dose of healthy greens with the slow cooker buffalo chicken and Blue Cheese Coleslaw wrapped inside collard leaves.

If you haven’t tried collard greens in a recipe like this, I think they’re slightly sweeter than some other types of greens and perfect for a wrap where the greens are eaten raw.  And if raw collards are never going to be your thing, go ahead and wrap the buffalo chicken in lettuce or cabbage. And if you’d prefer to use an Instant Pot or pressure cooker to make the buffalo chicken, check out my recipe for Pressure Cooker Buffalo Chicken Tacos with Blue Cheese Coleslaw.

Cook chicken breasts in the slow cooker for about 3 hours in a mixture of stock and seasonings, then remove chicken, discard stock, and shred chicken apart. Mix Buffalo sauce ingredients.  Put chicken back in the slow cooker and toss with the buffalo sauce, then cook about about 30 minutes on high.

While chicken cooks with the sauce, make Ridiculously Easy Blue Cheese Coleslaw and crumble some extra blue cheese. Wash collards leaves and pat dry. Fill each leaf with some coleslaw, then top with the shredded buffalo chicken and some crumbled blue cheese and devour!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Low-Carb Collards Wraps with Blue Cheese Coleslaw

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Low-Carb Collards Wraps with Blue Cheese Coleslaw are a delicious way to eat your greens!

Ingredients:

Buffalo Chicken Ingredients:

Other Ingredients:

  • 5 T thick blue cheese dressing (I like Lighthouse Original Blue Cheese for this.)
  • 2 T low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. celery seed
  • 1/2 large head green cabbage, thinly sliced and then chopped
  • 1/4 large head red cabbage, thinly sliced and then chopped
  • 1/2 cup thickly sliced green onion
  • salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
  • 8 large collard leaves, washed and dried
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese for serving + more blue cheese to add to the slaw if desired

Directions:

  1. Trim chicken pieces and cut into half lengthwise.
  2. Spray the slow cooker with olive oil or non-stick spray and place chicken strips in the slow cooker.
  3. Mix chicken stock, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder and pour over the chicken.
  4. Cook on high for about 3 hours or until chicken shreds apart easily with a fork.
  5. When chicken is tender, drain in a colander placed in the sink, discarding the stock the chicken was cooked in.
  6. Let chicken cool for a few minutes so it’s easier to handle, then shred chicken apart with two forks. (You can rinse the chicken before you shred it, but I didn’t worry about it.)
  7. Mix Frank’s Hot Sauce, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, Agave Nectar or sweetener of your choice and Green Tabasco Sauce (if using).
  8. Put the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker and pour the sauce over, stirring gently to combine the chicken and sauce. (This buffalo chicken mixture is a bit less saucy here than in previous recipes because I didn’t want the sauce to drip out of the collard leaves.)
  9. Cook on high while you follow instructions to prepare Ridiculously Easy Blue Cheese Coleslaw, adding some blue cheese crumbles to the coleslaw mixture if desired.
  10. Trim stem end of the collard greens; then wash the greens and pat dry.
  11. Put some of the slaw mixture into each collard green, add a few spoonfuls of the buffalo chicken mixture, and top with a little crumbled blue cheese if desired.
  12. If this recipe makes more than you’ll eat at one meal I would refrigerate the collard leaves, buffalo chicken mixture, cabbage mixture and dressing separately and toss the slaw together when you eat the leftovers.

Notes:

The ingredients listed in this recipe are slightly less than the Blue Cheese Coleslaw recipe but you can make the full recipe if you prefer.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Low-Carb Collards Wraps are suitable for low-carb, Keto, and low-glycemic diet plans. Blue cheese is a limited food for the South Beach Diet, but if you follow my instructions for a lighter blue cheese dressing and use a moderate amount of crumbled blue cheese, I would eat this for any phase of South Beach.

  2. I too have never tried collard greens this way before but they sure look delicious – and super healthy too!

  3. I don't think I've ever eaten raw collard greens! I've got to give this a try. (And thanks for the shout-out for one of my favorite summer slow cooker recipes.)
