Buffalo Chicken Wraps Recipe

I’m a buffalo gal – if there’s a buffalo something (sandwich, pizza, wings, etc.) on the menu, you can bet that I’ll order it. There’s just something about that signature spicy tang of buffalo sauce that makes my taste buds sing!

If you feel the way I do about buffalo sauce, these buffalo chicken wraps are the PERFECT make-ahead, healthy lunch option for you! Loaded with chicken, cheese, and (of course) buffalo sauce, these yummy wraps will have you excited about your midday meal.

Buffalo Chicken Wrap Ingredients

Keep things super easy by using a rotisserie chicken here! Here’s everything you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon of hot pepper sauce
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • ½ cup of shredded cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • Celery sticks, for serving
  • Chips, for serving

  1. Combine the chicken, mayo, and hot pepper sauce – first, add the shredded chicken, mayo, and hot pepper sauce to a medium-sized bowl, and stir to combine.
  2. Lay out the tortillas – lay the tortillas out on a sheet pan, parchment paper, a large cutting board, or a clean counter.
  3. Spoon the chicken mixture and add cheese – add about a ½ cup of the chicken mixture to the center of each tortilla. Then, top the chicken mixture with the shredded cheese (about 2 tablespoons per wrap).
  4. Fold the tortillas – fold each tortilla lengthwise over the filling, then roll into a secure wrap.
  5. Brown the wraps – add the oil to a large skillet over medium heat, and place the wraps seam side down in the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the tortilla is browned. Flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes on the other side.
  6. Cut and store – cut the wraps in half and store them in lunch containers alongside celery sticks (if desired).

Buffalo Chicken Wrap Recipe Variations

Like the idea of a wrap but want to make it your own? Go for it! Here are a few of our favorite ideas:

  • Use ranch (regular or spicy) instead of buffalo sauce – if buffalo sauce isn’t your thing, omit the hot pepper sauce and mayo and use your favorite ranch dressing instead. Cooked and crumbled bacon would be a really delicious addition here too!
  • Skip the cheese – if you’re dairy-free (or want to keep this meal cheese-free for any reason), no prob! Just skip the cheese. Your wraps will still be every bit as tasty this way.
  • Use gluten-free tortillas – gluten-free? No problem! We are too. Gluten-free flour tortillas are fairly accessible these days – we found GF Mission tortillas at our local grocery store.
  • Pick a different side – feel free to sub any veggie or fruit in for the celery. You can also enjoy your wraps alongside pretzels, crackers, or chips if you’d like!

Buffalo Chicken Wraps Recipe Tips

Follow these tips for the best-textured meal prep buffalo wraps:

  • Let the wraps come to handling temperature before securing the lid on your storage container. The trapped steam will likely make your wrap soggy if the lid goes on when the wrap is still hot.
  • If you’re enjoying chips, pretzels, or crackers alongside your wrap, consider waiting to add them to your container until closer to when you plan on enjoying your lunch (think: if you’re packing a lunch to take to work, add them the morning of).

Storing Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Store your wraps in airtight containers in the refrigerator. Stored this way, they’ll be good for about 5 days.

What to Serve with Buffalo Chicken Wraps

We love these buffalo chicken wraps alongside cold, crispy celery sticks, but if you’re not a fan of celery (or just have another veggie on hand already), feel free to sub it for ANY raw veggie or fruit that you love. Bell peppers and/or strawberries would be really delicious. If you are looking for a crunchier side option, pretzels, chips, or crackers would be great too.

Q Are buffalo chicken wraps healthy?
A

Because “healthy” varies from person to person, you’ll have to determine this based on how your body tolerates the ingredients included in the wraps! If you’re able to enjoy chicken, mayo, hot pepper sauce, tortillas (regular or gluten-free), and cheese, these are absolutely a well-rounded, healthy lunch option for you.

Q How many calories are in a buffalo chicken wrap?
A

Using the exact ingredients and amounts listed in this recipe, there are about 382 calories per serving of these buffalo chicken wraps.

Q Do you serve a buffalo chicken wrap hot or cold?
A

It’s totally up to you! If you’re near a microwave or stovetop at lunchtime, feel free to rewarm them (either for about 45 seconds in the microwave or a couple of minutes in a pan over medium heat). Alternatively, these wraps are delicious right out of the fridge if that’s easiest for you. You can’t go wrong either way!
