My love of buffalo chicken runs deep! So deep that I devote part of each Sunday evening to making a big batch of Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken. I use this chicken in recipes throughout the week.
To make shredded buffalo chicken, simply add chicken breasts and buffalo wing sauce to an Instant Pot or slow cooker. Let the device do the work for you! After the chicken is cooked through, shred it apart and use it in a variety of recipes throughout the week. It’s seriously that easy!
Picked up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store over the weekend? You can also shred up the leftovers and use it in this recipe.
Start this wrap with shredded, cooked chicken and the rest of the recipe only takes 5 minutes to make! All of the delicious flavors of buffalo wings in a quick and simple lunch recipe? Yes, please!

What’s in a buffalo chicken wrap?
Every good Buffalo Chicken Wrap recipe needs shredded chicken tossed with buffalo sauce, veggies and cheese. For this recipe, I added shredded carrots, thinly sliced red onions, spinach, blue cheese crumbles and blue cheese dressing.
More of a ranch dressing fan? No problem, substitute the blue cheese dressing for ranch dressing. Not a blue cheese fan at all? Substitute the blue cheese crumbles with shredded pepper jack or cheddar cheese.
Prefer lettuce instead of spinach? No problem! Shredded lettuce can be used instead of spinach leaves.
Want to add more veggies to the wrap? Toss in some bell pepper strips, diced tomatoes or chopped celery.
Needless to say, it’s easy to make these wraps your own!
Are the wraps healthy?
Shredded chicken breast tossed in buffalo sauce is healthy and low in calories. The other ingredients you add to the wrap will determine how healthy the wrap is.
Using the ingredients provided in this Buffalo Chicken Wrap recipe, each wrap is 440 calories. The wrap also provides 41 grams of protein and 123% daily vitamin A needs. This is a great option for those looking for a low calorie, high protein meal.
How to heat the wraps
Buffalo chicken wraps are delicious served warm or cold. If you have access to a panini press, you can press the wrap, just like you would a sandwich. You can also heat the wrap for 1-2 minutes per side on the stove in a skillet over medium high heat.
The wraps can also be made ahead of time. Wrap them in foil or store them in ziplock bags in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. They can then be eaten cold straight out of the fridge or heated and served warm.
What to serve with it
Since this wrap only takes 5 minutes to make, that leaves plenty of time to make a delicious side dish!
