Wraps are one of my favorites to eat for lunch and these buffalo chicken wraps really hit the spot when you’re looking for that tangy and spicy buffalo flavor. They are perfect for lunch and taste great either hot and cold.
I seared my chicken in a frying pan, which I’ve included in the instructions down below, but you can use almost any cooked chicken you want, homemade or store-bought.
- canned chicken
- grilled chicken
- shredded rotisserie chicken
- diced poached or baked chicken
You can add whatever fillings you want into your wraps. I smeared ranch on the bottom of the wrap, topped with lettuce, the chicken, and added some tomato slices.
Optional add-ins for buffalo chicken wraps
- blue cheese
- tomato slices
- cheese slices or shredded cheese
Buffalo Chicken Wraps
- 1 lb thinly sliced chicken breast (cutlets)
- 1-2 tbsp avocado oil
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1/3 cup bottled buffalo wing sauce
- 4 wraps
- optional add-ins - see post for ideas
- If your chicken needs to be pounded, do so. Each piece should be roughly the same thickness throughout.
- Season each side with a good amount of salt and pepper.
- Set your frying pan over medium-high heat and let it heat up for about 1-2 minutes.
- Add enough oil to coat the pan and then lay the chicken breast in a single layer. (You may need to do this in batches) Leave it alone (no touching) for about 3-4 minutes.
- Flip and sear the other side for another 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. Remove from the pan onto a clean plate or cutting board and allow it to rest for 5 minutes.
- Cut the chicken into cubes or strips and then place in a bowl with the buffalo sauce. Toss to coat.
- Roll into wraps or tortillas with any add-ins you would like. Serve hot or chilled.
- For storing, I would refrigerate the chicken in a container and roll into wraps fresh the day of consumption. I attempted meal prepping these and the wraps got very soggy, although that could have been because of the tomato slices or maybe the type of wraps I used.
