5-Minute Buffalo Chicken Wrap | A Quick Lunch Recipe

This recipe is made with premade boneless chicken tenders. I recommend using these homemade Air Fryer Chicken Tenders. They’re incredibly easy to make and you can make this recipe by using leftovers.

They also make this recipe much healthier than a frozen or fried variety without losing the crispy fried taste.

Just stick the chicken tenders in an air fryer at 360 degrees Fahrenheit for 3-5 minutes, checking every 1-2 minutes.

If you don’t have an air fryer (which I recommend getting one because they’re amazing), you can use frozen chicken tenders, such as Tyson or Perdue. Air Fried OreosPlay Video

You can also use grilled chicken breasts, shredded grilled chicken, or rotisserie chicken to enjoy these buffalo chicken wraps with no breading.

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE BUFFALO CHICKEN WRAPS

Take your chicken tenders and break them into about 1-inch pieces. Place the shredded chicken tenders in a bowl and pour buffalo sauce on top.

This homemade buffalo wing sauce is delicious and takes only 5 minutes to make.

Trust me, you’re going to want to make that buffalo chicken wrap sauce. It’s the tastiest buffalo chicken sauce I’ve ever had and keeps good in the refrigerator for up to a month!

Coat the chicken tenders with the hot buffalo sauce on both sides until fully coated.

Take your flour tortilla and place it on a plate. Top it with ¼ of each of the chicken tenders mixture, lettuce, tomato, and 1 Tablespoon of chunky blue cheese dressing or bleu cheese crumbles.

You can substitute the blue cheese with ranch dressing, but I recommend pairing Buffalo sauce with blue cheese (and my husband is from Buffalo).

Wrap the tortilla with and secure it with a toothpick to keep it in place.

Repeat with the other 3 buffalo chicken wraps.

Enjoy immediately or refrigerate up to 3 days and enjoy cold or follow reheating directions below.

HOW DO I REHEAT A BUFFALO CHICKEN WRAP?

There’s nothing worse than a mushy cold wrap the next day. If your spicy chicken wrap is already assembled, just stick it in the air fryer at 350 degrees and reheat until warm, about 5 minutes and flip halfway through.

Check the wrap after 2 minutes. If the tortilla is starting to brown, turn your air fryer down to 325 degrees and continue to reheat it.

I use the Cosori 5.8QT Air Fryer to reheat mine. I can put both sides in without any issues with its square basket.

IS A WRAP HEALTHY COMPARED TO BREAD?

Yes and no. Some wraps can contain hydrogenated oils, another word for trans-fat. One wrap can often hold more sodium and calories than 2 pieces of bread.

Does that mean you should stay away from wraps?

No! Look for whole-grain wraps without hydrogenated oils. You can also load your wrap up with more ingredients than a small sandwich. This fills you up after 1 wrap instead of having more than 1 sandwich.
