Author Lindsey Janeiro, RDN


For the Slow Cooker Coconut Lime Chicken:

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • Juice of 2 1/2 limes divided
  • 1/4 c. low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 small red onion sliced
  • 1 Tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 Tbsp minced jalapeno
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Collard Wraps:

  • 12-16 collard leaves
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 2 carrots peeled and julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced into thin strips
  • 1/2 small red cabbage finely shredded
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 jalapeno sliced thinly with seeds and membranes removed for less heat (if desired)


  1. In the slow cooker crock, combine chicken, juice from 2 limes, broth, sliced red onion, ginger, and jalapeno.
  2. Cook on low for 3 hours, or until chicken is fork-tender and cooked all the way through.
  3. Remove chicken from slow cooker and pull apart into large shreds using two forks.
  4. Place pulled chicken in a bowl. Add coconut milk, juice from 1/2 lime, 1/4 cup of liquid from the slow cooker, and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. To form collard wraps, use a paring knife to remove part of the thick stem towards the bottom of the leaf, in order to make the leaf more pliable for rolling.
  6. Layer ingredients in the middle of the collard green leaf.
  7. To wrap, fold in both ends over the filling, then roll.
  8. Serve immediately, or refrigerate up to 24 hours.
