Ingredients

Shredded Chicken:

For Buffalo chicken wraps, boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken thighs work best due to their versatility and ability to absorb flavors. You can also use pre-cooked rotisserie chicken for convenience. For meatless alternatives, tofu or tempeh can be marinated in buffalo sauce for a flavorful vegetarian option. Additionally, chickpeas or cauliflower florets roasted with buffalo sauce offer a tasty plant-based alternative.

Chicken Wrap Sauce:

You can buy your favorite brand of Buffalo sauce for your wrap or you can choose to make this simple chicken wrap sauce to use in your homemade Buffalo chicken wrap.

Tortilla Wrap:

For Buffalo chicken wraps, choose soft, large tortillas that can hold all the ingredients without tearing. Flour tortillas are the most common choice, but you can also opt for whole wheat or spinach tortillas for added flavor and nutrition. If you prefer a low-carb option, look for lettuce wraps or low-carb tortillas.  Alternatively, you can also choose to make your own tortillas from scratch.

How to make tortillas?

Simply combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour and ½ teaspoon salt in a bowl. Gradually add ¾ cup of warm water and 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the flour mixture, stirring until a dough forms. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 3-5 minutes. Divide the dough into 8 equal balls. Use a rolling pin to roll out each dough ball into a thin circle, about 8 inches in diameter. Place a rolled-out tortilla onto the skillet over medium heat and cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side until lightly golden brown and bubbles form.

Lettuce and Carrots:

Carrots and lettuce add a delightful crunch and freshness to Buffalo chicken wraps. However, you can customize your wraps with a variety of other veggies such as sliced cucumbers, bell peppers, tomatoes, chickpeas, pickles, or red onions for added flavor and color.

Shredded Cheese:

Crumbled blue cheese or shredded cheddar cheese is the best cheese to use for these easy Buffalo chicken wraps. You can also experiment with other cheeses, like Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack, for an added kick, or opt for a mild cheese like mozzarella if you prefer a more subtle flavor. For a dairy-free or vegan wrap, you can consider using dairy-free shredded cheese, nutritional yeast, cashew cheese, or vegan cream cheese.

Ranch Dressing:

Using ranch dressing in a Buffalo chicken wrap provides a creamy and cooling contrast to the spicy buffalo sauce. Alternatively, blue cheese dressing is another classic option that enhances the tanginess of the buffalo sauce with its distinctive flavor. For a lighter twist, try Greek yogurt-based dressings flavored with herbs like dill or cilantro for a refreshing kick. Additionally, avocado ranch dressing adds a creamy texture and subtle avocado flavor, elevating the wraps with a hint of richness.

FAQs

What's the best way to cook the chicken for maximum flavor?

For maximum flavor, consider grilling or pan-searing the chicken. Marinate the chicken in buffalo sauce beforehand to infuse it with flavor, then cook it over medium-high heat until it develops a nice charred exterior and is cooked through. This method not only locks in moisture but also enhances the smoky flavor, elevating your Buffalo chicken wraps to the next level of deliciousness.

Leftover Buffalo chicken wraps can be kept fresh in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. To maintain their quality, store them in an airtight container or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Additionally, leftover Buffalo chicken wraps can be frozen for up to 3 months.
