Buffalo Chicken Wraps


Just in this last year, I have discovered my love for the flavors of Buffalo Chicken. And it's a good thing too, it seems to be everywhere these days! In the form of sandwiches, pastas, casseroles, and of course, you can't beat the old fashioned wing.


I found this idea on Pinterest, in need of using up the last bit of KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade I received as a part of the Foodbuzz Program. It's so easy, and so tasty! The chicken comes out tender, spicy and slightly sweet, which is the perfect thing to pair with pungent blue cheese and crisp lettuce. Wrapped in a tortilla and you have a finger licking lunch on your hands. It will definitely warm your belly on these cooler fall days.

Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Ingredients

4-5 flour or whole wheat tortillas
5-6 boneless, skinless, chicken thighs
1 1/2 cup Buffalo Chicken Marinade or preferred hot sauce
Blue Cheese or Gorgonzola crumbles
Blue Cheese or Ranch dressing
chopped lettuce and tomato (optional)

Directions

In a crockpot, combine chicken thighs and Buffalo Sauce. Cook on high for 3-5 hours, or until chicken is cooked through and falls apart easily. Shred chicken with sauce.

Assemble wrap with chicken, Blue Cheese, dressing, lettuce and tomato. Wrap tightly and fasten with toothpicks if desired. Enjoy! Napkins recommended!

My friend often orders a buffalo chicken wrap when we eat lunch together. As soon as I saw this post, I thought of her.

Thanks for sharing. I am passing along your recipe to her.

Oooh nice!!! That's got my mouth watering, just the thought of a spiced, sweet buffalo chicken wrapped tightly. I haven't had bufflao chicken in so long. Gotta change that.

So I'm curious...did your kids eat this too? I tried to make buffalo chicken wraps for dinner one night and about scared my kids out of the house with the spiciness. In any case, they look delicious to me!
