Why I Love this Buffalo Chicken Wraps Recipe?

I could put buffalo sauce on everything!  The reason I am such a big fan of buffalo sauce is that it is a great balance of spice, acidity, and sauciness and also pairs so well with other flavors.  It is great on chicken and veggies and pairs well with cheese and starches.  This flexibility that buffalo sauce lends itself to also makes this recipe so adaptable.  You can always switch out romaine for iceberg lettuce, cucumber for celery, or cheddar for jack cheese. The wrap will still be great, no matter what combinations you decide on.

Ranch vs. Blue Cheese: There is a lot of debate and personal preferences about which should be paired with buffalo chicken.  I typically make mine with ranch because our kids prefer it over blue cheese.  That being said, the recipe works great with either, and the two can be swapped out 1:1 in the recipe.

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.

Other Alterations and Substitutions

  • Dressing over the flour tortilla before adding the filling.
  • Romaine lettuce can be used in place of cabbage.

How To Keep Wraps From Getting Soggy?

  1. Wraps get soggy if you pack them for the end of the day, especially if you bring them for lunch, it can get soggy.
  1. Simply carefully wrap it in aluminum foil or plastic wrap to prevent that. It won’t get wet and the wrapping won’t get soggy if you wrap it in foil.

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 spicy when you see the amount of hot sauce in the recipe, but they are 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.

Why Make This Recipe?

Quick: This recipe only takes 30 minutes to prepare (if you use leftover or rotisserie chicken for shredding).

Easy Dinner: The best dish because they are so simple to do. Even kids can do it.

Healthy: Our buffalo chicken recipe is very healthy. They are naturally gluten-free, low-carb, and packed with protein, Vitamin A, and huge bursts of Vitamin C, Calcium, and Iron. Whole30 and paleo diets can be easily substituted.

Flexible: Shredded buffalo chicken wraps are a great alternative for a quick dinner or lunch that can be easily scaled up for a large group. The most welcoming wraps you’ve ever encountered.

Storage Tips

Refrigerator: Wraps made with crispy buffalo chicken leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Freezer: Wrap each roll individually in foil after they have cooled, then place them in an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months.

Reheat: Before reheating frozen leftovers in the microwave or oven, let them thaw in the refrigerator. Be sure to remove the foil before heating it in the oven. The chicken wraps in foil should be baked in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, or until well heated.

Further Tips and Tricks

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!

Buffalo Chicken Wraps

15 minutes is all you need to get a great dinner on the table that the whole family will enjoy!

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken tenders
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 large tortillas (I used spinach wraps.)
  • 1/3 cup Ranch or blue cheese dressing
  • 1 cup finely shredded cabbage or salad greens
  • 1/2 cup coarsely shredded carrots
  • 4 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, hot sauce, paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Add chicken, and toss to coat. Allow to marinate for at least 5 minutes. (You can put in the fridge for up to 24 hours for more flavor.)
  2. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over high heat and spray with cooking spray. Place each tortilla on a plate, and spread dressing evenly over the surface, leaving about an inch around the edges. Sprinkle cabbage, carrots, and cheese over the dressing.
  3. Use tongs to arrange chicken pieces in your very hot skillet, leaving excess marinade behind. Cook approximately 5 minutes per side, until chicken is cooked through.
  4. Arrange cooked chicken pieces down the center of each tortilla. Wrap tightly, cut in half, and serve.


If you want more heat, add cayenne to taste to the chicken marinade!

Beverage Pairing

Nothing pairs with buffalo sauce like ice cold lager beer (think wings and beer!). In this case, I enjoyed some Sapporo, Japanese Lager with the absolutely delicious buffalo chicken wrap.

These were a hit with the whole family. Since we love hummus we served it with blue cheese dressing but had an option of chipotle hummus for variety. Thanks for sharing.

Made these for lunch today – yum! Great recipe. I don’t care for ranch dressing, so I made this with a spicy mayo (mayo + siracha). The marinade was the best part, and I will definitely use that combination again. Thanks!

Thanks, Evie! I’m so glad you liked it, and the spicy mayo sounds like a tasty substitution.
