Ingredients for buffalo chicken wrap

For marinade: 

  • Frank’s Red HotIn my opinion, this is the gold standard in buffalo sauce. 
  • Spices – I’ve used a blend of garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and kosher salt. 

For wrap: 

  • Flour tortilla wraps – These are perfect for our buffalo chicken wrap.
  • Veggies – I’ve chosen a combination of tomato, lettuce, carrot, and red onion.
  • Dressing – Feel free to choose your favorite blue cheese, ranch, or blue cheese dressing!

Ways to prepare the chicken

In this recipe, I’ve cut the chicken into strips, marinated them, and sauteed them in a pan, but here are some more ways to cook up the chicken to your liking!

You could keep the chicken breast whole, marinate it, and grill it until cooked completely. 

Then let it rest for 5 minutes on a cutting board, and slice it into strips.

Alternatively, a great time saver is to buy a rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store, pre-cooked! You would simply shred the cooked chicken, mix it in with the marinade and put it into your wrap.

Storage and leftovers

Any leftover buffalo chicken can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

If you are meal-prepping for the week, I would suggest making the wraps each day as you go. 

So fill up small food storage containers with a small amount of chicken and veggies, and pack the wrap separately. When you get to your destination, put the filling in the middle of the wrap, and roll it up!

This will prevent your tortilla from getting soggy during transport.
