Why We Love This Recipe
Buffalo chicken anything always gets our attention. Everyone in our family loves anything and everything made with buffalo chicken.
We try to change it up by making pizza, nachos, or sandwiches, but we all agree that this Buffalo Chicken Casserole is probably one of our all time favorite ways to eat it.
When I was looking for an easy dinner for busy school nights, I decided to make a spicy chicken wrap recipe with buffalo chicken for a quick grab and go dinner.
Wraps are so easy to make, fun to customize, and taste better than a sandwich.
You will need just a few ingredients to make a buffalo ranch chicken wrap for lunch or dinner.
- Chicken – Diced chicken breasts or tenderloins cooked with salt and pepper is what we like to use. You can also use a rotisserie chicken, crispy chicken, or canned chicken instead.
- Buffalo Wing Sauce – you can make your own with hot sauce and melted butter or use your favorite brand. We like Sweet Baby Ray’s wing sauce.
- Tortillas – use your choice of tortilla to wrap everything up. Flour, high fiber, low carb, and gluten free tortillas are great choices. For another low carb option use large lettuce leaves to turn them into buffalo chicken lettuce wraps.
- Veggies – lettuce, tomatoes, and onions are what we like to fill our chicken wraps with
- Cheese – use shredded cheddar and blue cheese crumbles to give flavor and variety
- Dressing – use ranch or blue cheese depending on what you prefer with buffalo chicken
Our kids still won’t touch blue cheese crumbles, but I have learned to love the flavor the crumbles add to buffalo chicken. Just don’t hate me because I still drizzle my dinner wraps with ranch dressing. If you like blue cheese dressing, go for it.

- Veggies – romaine or iceberg lettuce, diced tomatoes, red and green onions, celery, shredded carrots, avocados
- Cheese – blue cheese crumbles, shredded cheddar cheese, your favorite sliced cheese
- Dressing – ranch, blue cheese
- Buy prepackaged shredded lettuce to save time on dinner prep.

- Warm tortillas in a heated skillet, so they are easier to fold and roll.
- Reheat cold wraps by heating them in an air fryer for 4-5 minutes at 350 degrees.
Chicken wraps are best eaten the day they are made. If you have leftover ingredients, refrigerate them in individual containers.
You can wrap leftover wraps in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 days, but they may start to get a little soggy.
