These quick and easy, low-carb, high-protein Ginger Soy Chicken Collard Green Wraps have been sponsored by Starkist, but of course, all opinions expressed are my own.
Ginger Soy Chicken Collard Green Wraps
The number one thing I hear from not only my clients, but my friends and dietitian moms as well, is that time is of the essence.
When it comes to healthy eating, it has to be quick, it has to be easy, and it has to be accessible.
When faced with the choice of quick and convenient vs. healthy and delicious, quick and convenient wins every single time. So it is my goal to make healthy and delicious ALSO quick and convenient.
Hence these delicious Ginger Soy Chicken Collard Green Wraps that are ready in literally less than 5-minutes.
Have you ever used a collard green as a wrap before? If not, today is the day I change your life for the better.
Typically reserved for southern cooking, collard greens are a big, study flat leaf that makes the most perfect naturally low-carb and gluten-free vehicle for getting any and all delicious sandwich ingredients into your belly as easily as possible.
No matter which diet or lifestyle you follow, collard green wraps are a perfect way to experiment in the kitchen while enjoying the health benefits of this nutritious, dark leafy green. Simply lay out your collard green wrap and fill it up.
For this recipe I used the new StarKist Chicken Creations Ginger Soy pouches which are my new FAVORITE convenience staple – you just tear, eat and go with no mess and no fuss.
A Real Life Connection
I am proud to have worked with StarKist on a variety of different projects, and I am proud that the products I help to promote are products that I actually use and consume in my own kitchen and home on a regular basis.
StarKist is an innovative brand that is consistently creating products that are good for you, good for the planet, and that taste great too thanks to their own registered dietitian, Laura Ali. I know the lengths that Laura has gone to to make sure that these products are not only delicious, but also nutritious, and I am proud to call her a friend and colleague.
Every year in October over 10,000+ dietitians gather to celebrate and attend the Food, Nutrition Conference and Expo known as FNCE. If we are friends on Instagram, you may have seen the five days of sheer fun, education, and immersion into all things health and wellness. Luckily, this is where I get to meet up with my friend Laura to reconnect and to learn more about what StarKist is up to.
This year the conference was in Washington DC and I got to learn all about what Laura has been working on, the StarKist Chicken Creations line which includes 4 delicious new flavors, a BOLD Buffalo Style, Chicken Salad, Zesty Lemon Pepper and my favorite, the Ginger Soy.
Why I Love Starkist Chicken Creations
Let’s face it, we are all busy. We live in a go, go, go world and these days it is rare to have the chance to sit down and to cook a full meal aside from the weekends.
I have written about the Starkist Tuna pouches, and the StarKist Salmon pouches and now Starkist is offering even more delicious, lean protein options including the NEW Chicken Creations that are available in a variety of flavors, you can check them all out here.
The pouches are so convenient because they’re ready to eat as is, but since they come in many different and exciting flavors, you can easily combine them with simple ingredients for a completely nutritious meal, like my Ginger Soy Chicken Collard Wraps below.
StarKist Chicken Creations pouches are a great way to add protein to any meal without having to do any extra cooking or meal prep. They are a necessity for those always on the move because you can – just tear, eat and go!
Quick and easy, these low-carb, high-protein Ginger Soy Chicken Collard Green Wraps come together in less than 5-minutes for a healthy, satisfying meal.
- 1 whole collard green leaf
- 1 2.6 ounce packet StarKist Chicken Creations Ginger Soy
- 1/4 cup matchstick carrots
- 1/4 cup shredded red cabbage
- 1/4 cup bell pepper thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup vermicelli rice noodles optional
- 2 tablespoons crushed peanuts
If using vermicelli rice noodles, soak them in hot water for 5 minutes to soften before draining.
On a flat surface, lay the collard green wrap down and carefully remove any prominent stems as needed.
Fill the collard green wrap in the center with StarKist Chicken Creations Ginger Soy, carrots, cabbage and bell pepper.
If using the rice noodles, drain and add to the wrap.
Add the crushed peanuts.
Roll the collard green wrap shut like a burrito, tucking in the ends and sides to ensure no ingredients slip out.
Cut in half just before serving. Enjoy!
Rice vermicelli is a very fine noodle made of ground rice and used primarily in Asian cooking.
