Ingredients you will need

  • Chicken breast: We used 2 large chicken breasts. We love using chicken breasts because they are leaner and a much healthier option. If you do not like chicken breasts and would rather use chicken thighs go ahead. Keep in mind they have a much higher fat content but yet more tender for a preferred option for some.
  • Oil: Olive oil was our first choice, but you may use avocado or another neutral-tasting oil
  • Seasonings: You will need onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Buffalo sauce: Look for healthier options out there. They have some that are low in sugar. Make your own at home if you like. Check out this post on how to make homemade buffalo sauce.
  • Crumbled blue cheese: Many don’t like blue cheese so sub this with crumbled feta cheese or goat cheese.
  • Veggies: Romaine lettuce (or any green leafy veggie like spinach), carrots, and celery sticks
  • Tortilla: We use whole wheat tortillas but use your favorite. So many out there.

Frequently asked questions

What does a buffalo chicken wrap contain?

Buffalo Chicken wraps are usually made with crispy chicken tenders topped with slaw and blue cheese dressing and other ingredients like crunchy veggies and avocado. Buffalo chicken wraps will vary based on how creative people get and what veggies they prefer. Our chicken wrap was made with grilled chicken instead of fried breaded chicken for a healthier option.

Are wraps served hot or cold?

Wraps are mostly served cold which makes them a great option for lunch at work or when you are on the go. That being said, wraps can also be served hot if they are just made and the fillings used are still hot.

Are chicken wraps OK for weight loss?

What’s going into your chicken wrap? If your chicken wrap is loaded with lean protein and veggies, then yes, chicken wraps are a great option to have on your weight loss journey. Beware of adding ingredients that are high in fat and calories like cheeses and dressings. Use grilled lean proteins instead of fried and breaded protein.
