These Easy Buffalo Chicken Wraps come together quickly and will please the whole family! This tasty recipe takes all of 15 minutes to make, and boy is it good!
I want to add that, this is probably my favorite way to eat buffalo chicken. My mom is a huge fan of wings, but they aren’t really my thing. I love the spicy flavor, but I do not like getting messy. It is pretty much impossible to eat wings without a mess! Also, buffalo wings are inherently greasy, which is also not really my thing.
This buffalo chicken wrap recipe uses boneless, skinless chicken, and it is all wrapped up neatly in a tortilla. I get all that delicious buffalo chicken flavor in a much healthier and easier form. Yay!
Another benefit of this easy-to-make buffalo chicken wraps recipe is that chicken makes a fantastic substitute for red meats. A great source of protein, there is a variety of health benefits meat has like stronger bones and muscles, heart health and weight management, and good nutrition.
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Wraps: Step-by-Step Guide
Step 1: First of all, slice chicken breast into several long, thin strips. Then, in a bowl, whisk together salt, olive oil, hot sauce, and other spice that you like. Mix all of that with the chicken and allow to marinate for at least 10 minutes.
The chicken breasts may seem to be really spicy when you see the amount of hot sauce in the recipe, but they are actually pretty tame, especially with the dressing and veggies to cool them down. Although, remember that every ingredient should be to your taste. I always guide my readers to follow their tastes and preferences, as there is no recipe for everyone!
Step 2: Cook the chicken strips as you wish. I choose to arrange them into a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and let the meat cook for only 5 minutes.
Step 3: Meanwhile, place tortillas on a plate and spread with a thin layer of bleu cheese or ranch dressing. This step is not mandatory, as you can always serve your tortillas only with your chicken and some veggies. Layer with lettuce, carrots, avocado, and cheese.
Also, do not you think these green tortillas look fun? How does your family feel about spinach wraps? I usually think colorful things will be fun and exciting, but my kids are instantly suspicious and leery of abnormally colored foods (unless icing is involved).
They know vegetables are green, so there must be vegetables involved. I have a much easier time getting them to eat whole wheat bread and tortillas than anything green, orange, or red.
Arrange a few chicken strips down the center of each tortilla. Wrap tightly, like a burrito. Serve up these easy chicken wraps with chips and apple slices for a super-duper quick dinner. Or, if you have time, try serving them with baked battered fries instead!
