BBQ Chicken with Blue Cheese Slaw Wraps

BBQ Chicken with Blue Cheese Slaw Wraps

The reason behind making the blue cheese cole slaw and the bbq sauce was for these bbq chicken with blue cheese slaw wraps that I recently came across on Naturally Ella. The combination of the warm, tender shredded chicken cover in a sweet, tangy and spicy bbq sauce and the creamy blue cheese cole slaw sounded like such an amazing flavour combination that I just had to make it right away. The flavour combinations reminded me of buffalo chicken wings with a blue cheese dipping sauce that that ignited the cravings. These wraps do not take long to whip up, especially since you should make the slaw and bbq sauce ahead of time so that their flavours can mellow out and I almost always have some cooked and shredded chicken in the freezer for quick meals. Despite being so easy to make, these wraps are fantastically good! The flavours work perfectly together and the crisp cabbage provides a nice crunchy contrast in texture. I think I will be making a second batch of these really soon!

Yummylicious! Blue cheese cole slaw sounds really funky :)

Emily said...

I can only imagine how amazing this combination could taste in a wrap. Creamy coleslaw and smoky, spicy barbecue sauce- brilliant. And the colors are amazing, it looks absolutely delicious.

Wow! This looks delicious. I have wanted to try slaw on hamburgers also but have not had the chance. Will try soon! Thanks for sharing!

or slather the blue cheese cole slaw onto a nice hot pulled pork sandwich... I think that would be summer barbecue heaven.
Keep up the awesome ideas!

This wrap has my husband's name written ALL over it... these are some of his very favorite foods. I'm sure we'll both enjoy them when I make them!

I love homemade bbq sauce and am always looking for new takes on it. With the blue cheese slaw, this must have been BURSTING with flavor!

Girl Foodie said...

This looks GORGEOUS! I love that flavour combination with the blue cheese. I bet if the chicken was cooked slowly in a braising liquid flavoured with some of the same flavours as in the sauce it would be even more intense.
YUM! thanks!

I was just about to post a recipe inspired by your Korean chicken a while back and now you've hit me with this! This looks fantastic ... I don't care if it is only 8:30 a.m. ... I need one of those wraps right now!!

Grumpy and HoneyB said...

This looks absolutely awesome and yummy! I have bookmarked it is one that just can't be passed over!

Melissa said...

That sounds so delicious! I have chicken in the fridge to cook and nothing to do with it. Now I know what I'll make for dinner.

Hi Kevin!

I bet you could also do the chicken in a crock pot all day and then just assemble it when you get home!

This sounds right up my ally!

Have a great weekend Kevin!

vanillasugar said...

jenisnape said...

I'll be trying this sometime this summer :) Great recipes Kevin!

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Sounds like a blend of perfect flavor combos--great idea!

HAPPY IN NEVADA said...

I also make a similar recipe, but my husband prefers the coleslaw be served 'on the side' since he doesn't like it in the wrap.

Either way, it's a yummy one and goes good with a Margarita.......

Lauren said...

Just made these tonight, and they were a big hit! As anticipated, my husband's eyes lit up when I announced that dinner would include both BBQ sauce and blue cheese coleslaw :) Great recipe!

Ilona said...

Made these today, also exactly following your recipes for the slaw and the sauce. The wraps were awesome! :-) We ate way too much of this - feeling very stuffed right now, crashing on our couch.. :-) Greetings from the Netherlands!
