Buffalo Chicken Wrap

Two words…hot sauce and blue cheese!! If you are from Buffalo NY then you know exactly what I am talking about. These two sinfully delicious condiments are a staple in every Buffalonian kitchen and after trying this guilt free recipe it will be in yours too.

I actually planned on making this wrap awhile ago but I was having a difficult time finding a blue cheese dressing (homemade or prepared) that was low in calories and tasted good. Then I found a yogurt blue cheese dressing offered by Wegmans (my local grocery store) and the waters parted. This dressing is absolutely delicious and only 80 calories for 2 tablespoons.

Warning: This wrap is messy and probably should not be consumed wearing a white shirt but at only 423 calories who cares!

Buffalo Chicken Wrap

Servings: 4

Serving size: 1 wrap (1 cup of chicken mixture, 2 tablespoons blue cheese dressing, lettuce, and wrap)

Approximate nutritional information:

Calories: 423 * Carbs: 19 * Fat: 14 * Protein: 60 * Fiber: 8

Ingredients:

2 pounds chicken breasts

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup Frank’s hot sauce

4 100 calorie wraps or burrito size tortillas.

2 tablespoons per wrap yogurt blue cheese dressing

2 cups chopped romaine lettuce

Directions:

Step 1. Cut chicken in bite size pieces.

Step 2. Heat oil and butter in pan. Add chicken and cook until done (no pink in middle)

Step 3. Turn off heat and then add in the hot sauce a little bit at a time. Depending on how spicy you like your food you may not use all the hot sauce.

Step 4. Prepare one wrap at a time. Warm up wrap or tortilla in microwave or pan then spread 2 tablespoons of blue cheese around the center. Add chicken mixture then 1/2 cup of romaine lettuce and fold up.

Enjoy!

Freezer instructions:

This recipe can easily be frozen for a future lunch or dinner. Cook up the chicken mixture as described in steps 1 – 3 then place in freezer bag or container to be put in the freezer. The wraps can also be bought ahead of time and frozen. When you are ready to make this then take everything out the night before to defrost in the fridge. Warm chicken up in microwave using a microwave safe dish or again using a pan on the stove.

Special note: The nutritional information was calculated if you were using Flatout Flatbread Wraps in this recipe. If you use a different brand the nutritional information may change. Also, to reduce the calories even more for this dish try cooking with less butter or use only one tablespoon blue cheese.

  1. YUM! That has my name written all over it! Don’t you love the yogurt dressings?!?! I tried a yogurt ranch dressing last week by Marie’s and it was awesome! My next step is to try making my own out of fat free yogurt and see how it tastes. We’ll see! Love this recipe. I know my hubby would love it too!

  2. Courtney says:

    I made these tonight with the light flatout wraps(90 calories per wrap), added some chopped celery and used the Marie’s yogurt dressing…very tasty. My boyfriend loved them too! These will definitely be in the dinners to repeat rotation! Thanks Tam!

    • I agree with one of the posters that said add chopped celery…I need my celery with buffalo and blue cheese…also the wrap is great at 90 calories…that rocks!

  3. This is a bit late but I found your blog recently I wanted to let you know I LOVE THIS RECIPE! I haven’t found your wraps, but even with a tortilla they are AWESOME. Even my skinny husband likes it when I make these. Thanks so much for the idea and recipe.

    Also, if you have any ideas or suggestions on HOW you remember to record your food in your journal, I would appreciate it. I seem to make it through breakfast and then forget the thing exists until after dinner.

    • Hi Jessica! You are not late at all. I am so glad you tried this recipe and enjoyed it. It is also one of my hubs favorites. As for the food journal that is a great post idea. I will give it some thought and put it together for this week or next.

      Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

  4. When freezing these do you add lettuce too? Or add it before eating?

  5. I’m so glad I found this site! I’m definitely going to be trying these. I’m new to buffalo chicken (can’t stand chicken on the bone), so I have no clue how spicy is recipe is. Would it be ok for a little guy? He’s not completely anti spicy food!

    • HI Courtney! This recipe is really good but it is spicy. MY oldest LOVES hot sauce so she can chow it down but my 4 year old will not eat it. SO I just put some chicken aside for her before I put the hot sauce in.

  6. My son would LOVE this for lunch during the week. Any tips as to how to send it to school with him for lunchtime?

    • You can either send it all ready prepared and wrapped in plastic wrap or foil or send all the components in separate containers and he can assemble at lunch. That is how I would do it. Let me know how it turns out for ya.

  7. I have found a great yogurt blue cheese for only 45 cals per 2 tbs! Its by Bolthouse Farms, found in HyVee and Target! Its AMAZING!

  8. Thanks for this recipe. I had never heard of blue cheese yogurt dressing before, but I found some at the store and it is delicious! My husband liked these wraps even though I used low carb, super healthy tortillas. 🙂

  9. WannaBHealthy says:

    Can’t wait to try this with my Buffalo chicken loving family. It sounds delicious! I think I might also add some chopped celery to the chicken after it’s cooked for a bit more crunch.

  10. I’m wondering how these wraps would be with paleo and gluten free tortillas…Hmm…

  11. I can’t wait to try this!

[…] Buffalo Chicken Wrap Kits:  This is a new recipe I’ll be trying.  I think my husband would flip over these!  I’m only going to make one batch to see how it goes.  I will be adapting the recipe slightly.   So, how do I make a freezer kit?  It’s quite simple actually.  Freezer kits come in handy when you do not want to freezer all the ingredients for a meal together.  These are several reasons for this.  One is that certain foods do not freeze & thaw well together, like some wraps.  I will be making the chicken mixture completely then dividing it into portions.  Portions will be frozen in a zip top baggies.  In a larger bag, I will place the number of tortillas needed for the portion of chicken, then place the bag of chicken inside the larger bag.  This way all I have to do is pull the bag of chicken & tortillas out of the freezer & place in the fridge to thaw the night before we’ll be eating them for dinner.  Once thawed, all I have to do is warm the chicken, wraps and add the toppings.  It doesn’t get much easier!  The recipe for Buffalo Chicken Wraps can be found at Skinny Mom’s Kitchen.
