Buffalo Chicken Wings Ingredients - Bacon, Chicken, Buffalo Wing Sauce, Butter, Flour Tortillas, Ranch Dressing and Tomatoes

Ingredients

All you need is seven ingredients to make these delicious wraps.

  • Bacon – Be sure it’s brown and crisp to give the wraps a wonderful crunch.
  • Chicken – The star of the dish. Use any cut of chicken you prefer or go for leftovers to make things easy.
  • Buffalo Wing Sauce – Use your favorite! Mine is Frank’s Wing sauce.
  • Butter – It coats the chicken along with the sauce, giving it maximum flavor.
  • Flour Tortillas – The wrap that seals in all that chicken goodness.
  • Ranch Dressing – Cool, rich, and creamy, it contrasts the tang and spice of the sauce.
  • Tomato – It’s something refreshing to counterbalance the richness of the bacon and ranch dressing.

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Follow these simple steps to enjoy a delicious wrap for lunch.

1. Cook the bacon. In a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until crisp.

2. Cook the chicken. It’s faster to either pound the chicken into thin cutlets or cut it into slices.

3. Add the sauce and butter. Toss the chicken with the hot sauce and butter in the skillet so it stays warm.

4. Make the wraps. Layer warm tortillas with the saucy chicken, crumbled bacon, tomatoes, and ranch.

Tips for the Best Wraps

These easy tips and tricks will make your wraps even tastier.

  • Take a shortcut. Leftover chicken is perfect for these wraps! Not only will it eliminate the need to cook chicken from scratch, but it also adds a different flavor.
  • Get shred happy. This recipe calls for slicing the chicken into bite-sized chunks, but you can also shred it. To make things easier and faster, use a food processor.
  • Take out the heat. Omit the buffalo sauce and stick to ranch dressing for less of a kick.
  • Get cheesy. For richer wraps, add shredded cheese or cream cheese to the chicken before wrapping.
  • Try some leafy lettuce. Use butter or romaine lettuce and pick the bigger leaves.
  • Soften the tortillas. Hard tortillas are hard to wrap! So, warm them in the skillet or microwave for a few seconds before filling.

Variations and Substitutions

As mentioned, these wraps are so easily customizable! Here are a few fun variations to try:

  • Swap out the meat. Try turkey, pork, or even tofu if you want a vegetarian version.
  • Cut the carbs. For a keto-friendly version, serve the wraps rolled in leafy lettuce instead of tortillas.
  • Dial down the spice. Leave the pepper out of the recipe and opt for something mild, like avocado.
  • Add some crispiness. Throw in some French’s fried onions or a layer of slaw for a special, crunchy twist.
  • Try a healthy spin. Use fiber-rich tortillas or spinach tortillas for a boost of additional nutrition.

What to Serve With Buffalo Chicken Wraps

These wraps are so hearty, they’re a meal on their own. Still, you can’t beat a tasty side dish!

Here are some fantastic options:

  • French Fries – You can’t beat salty, crunchy fries with spicy, tender chicken.
  • Green Salad – Something light to balance out the heaviness of the wraps.
  • Oven-Roasted Veggies – Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, asparagus, Brussels sprouts – take your pick.
  • Carrot and Celery Sticks – Use the same ranch dressing in the wraps to dip them into or make a bleu cheese dip.
  • Coleslaw – A bright, crunchy, and refreshing summer side that pairs beautifully with chicken.

How to Store

It’s highly unlikely you’ll have leftover buffalo chicken wraps.

But in case you do, store the chicken, tortillas, and other fillings separately, if possible. This will prevent the tortillas from turning soggy.

That said, if you reheat them the right way, it shouldn’t be an issue.

To Store: Wrap leftovers in parchment and foil and place them in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

To Freeze: Wrap cooled wraps in parchment and foil, then place them in freezer bags. Freeze for up to 3 months.

To Reheat: Reheat cold, still-wrapped leftovers in the air fryer or oven for 5-10 minutes at 350°F. Reheat frozen leftovers in the air fryer or oven for 15-20 minutes at 350°F.

How to Keep Wraps from Getting Soggy

The last thing anyone wants is a mushy, soggy wrap!

The best way to keep them crispy is to eat them as soon as possible after you make them.

Alternatively:

  • Cook the bacon and chicken, then chill and refrigerate them until ready to eat.
  • Layer lettuce over the tortillas to keep the dressing from touching the tortilla.
  • Use the hot sauce and ranch as a dip while eating instead of having it inside the wrap.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound thin-sliced bacon

Instructions

  • Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the bacon, flipping it occasionally, until brown and crisp, for 10 to 15 minutes.
