How To Wrap Up This Recipe

This yummy recipe is great for lunch or dinner!

You can prepare this buffalo chicken wrap in just three easy steps and about 20-minutes!

1. Cook the Chicken

The first thing you’ll need to do is cook up your chicken breast and get it nice and saucy. If you’ve already got cooked chicken prepped, feel free to use it! Shredded or diced will do the trick. If not, get some fresh chicken breast and dice it up. Season it with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet over medium high heat and pour in your olive oil. Once hot, add your chicken and cook all the way through, about 6 to 8 minutes. Check that the internal temperature is 165 degrees fahrenheit if you’re not sure. Once cooked, remove it from the heat and toss it in the buffalo sauce. Set aside. 

2. Fold Your Wrap

Once your chicken is ready, you can start creating your wrap. Start by cutting one line in the tortilla from the middle to the edge. Using that line as a guide, spread the cream cheese on the first quarter of the tortilla. In the next quarter, lay your buffalo chicken, making sure to transfer over some of the sauce, as well. Spread the blue cheese in the next quarter, then arrange spinach on top of it. In the last quarter, drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons of extra buffalo sauce. At this point, your tortilla should look like a 4-piece pizza with different toppings on each quarter. Now you can begin to fold. Fold the first quarter, which will be the one with the cut next to it over on top of the one next to it. Pick up the layered triangle and fold onto the next quarter. Pick it up one more time and fold on top of the last bit to form a triangle. Now, all of the toppings should be inside and you have a tortilla pocket filled with all of the ingredients.

3. Heat (and Crisp) it Up!

Lastly, heat a skillet over medium heat and cook your tortilla for 1 to 3 minutes on each side to heat everything up. Feel free to cook it longer if you want the tortilla extra crunchy!
