I wanted to make these tonight with our Instant Pot BBQ shredded chicken because this is a classic favorite southern dish! I always see bacon collard greens at local BBQ joints, but I’ve never made it?! And now, I wondered what took me so long!
Anything with bacon in it is delicious. It can make the yuckiest vegetable turn into the most delicious one. My family loved these bacon collard greens just as much as me! They are my official first foodie testers. 😉
If you’re curious on how I cook my Instant Pot BBQ chicken, it’s super easy. I just throw some organic chicken breasts in the IP, cover them with BBQ sauce (the one we used tonight I got from Costco and it was SO good!), and a little bit of bone broth if the sauce is too thick. In order for the Instant Pot to work correctly, it needs enough fluids to build up pressure.
Cook the chicken for 20 minutes on high pressure. Tada! And these collard greens weren’t bad either!
One thing that I’ve been obsessed with doing is cooking bacon in the oven!! I LOVE that it doesn’t make much of a mess, the grease doesn’t splatter every freakin’ where. So, this is how I cooked the bacon in this recipe and then added the grease and chopped bacon….the rest of the recipe I’ll put below.
