Easy Buffalo Chicken Wraps are a must make super quick and totally delicious lunchtime meal! A tortilla wrap stuffed with a crazy quick easy cheesy buffalo chicken filling and any vegetables you choose. Lunch time will be done in less than 5 minutes and fully loaded with flavor.

I’m not sure when buffalo chicken became so popular, but I am SO glad it did. I remember the first time I made some buffalo chicken wings in the oven, I was about 17 years old. I remember eating them on the front porch, and talking about how I should probably open up a restaurant and serve only these, forever. Unfortunately, I never opened a restaurant that sold only buffalo chicken wings. But, I promise if I ever get that opportunity to that I will make the menu a bit larger.

This recipe for Buffalo Chicken Wraps has been one of my favorite quick lunch go to’s for YEARS now. It comes together much quicker than it even takes for me to explain how to make it! I quickly prepare Pepper’s lunch and also have these ready to go, so I can sit and enjoy lunch with her… while watching her throw food to the dogs.

We’ve hit that stage.

This is not my favorite stage at all. The dogs sure do love her though.

Sometimes, I use frozen chicken nuggets(my favorite guilty pleasure), or my forever fave Easy Baked Chicken (that I almost always have on hand these days). Whatever your heart desires is just fine! Note: that points/calories will vary a bit if you use breaded chicken nuggets!

How to make Buffalo Chicken Wraps:

Grab your chicken and chop it into small pieces. I use rotisserie, canned, or my Easy Baked Chicken recipe!

chicken, cheese, cheese wedges, and franks buffalos sauce


Ingredients for two Easy Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Wraps:

  • 4 oz chicken breast (about one cup)- You can use any chicken breast even canned chicken breast works well here.
  • Laughing Cow Wedges- I love these little wedges! You can also use about 3 tbsp of whipped cream cheese in place of this ingredient if I can’t find the wedges. You should be able to find either one with no problem.
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar or Colby jack cheese- If you have a Kroger the Kroger store brand reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese is a life line of mine.
  • Low point/low carb tortillas- I use Ole Extreme Wellness 8-inch Flour Tortilla Wraps You should be able to find them at your local grocery store If not a regular tortilla will work or whatever you prefer, but WW points/calories may change so adjust if needed!
  • Franks Buffalo Hot Sauce – I cannot stress the importance here that you MUST use the Buffalo sauce not just the Franks Hot Sauce here. It’s completely different and you’ll love it more if you use Buffalo sauce!
  • 1/4 tsp ranch dressing seasoning powder or 1/4 tsp garlic salt- Honestly, either one. I go back and forth all the time.
  • Extra veggies: I do lettuce/spinach or thinly sliced red onions. Eric likes tomatoes added to his!
  • Skinny Ranch or store bought ranch of choice to dip in! Optional and a delicious addition.

Add diced chicken, cheeses, and seasoning to a microwave safe bowl and stir together really well. Cover and pop into the microwave for about a minute. Stir and make sure it’s heated through.

Heat up two tortillas between two damp paper towels for about 20 seconds in the microwave. Spread the Buffalo chicken mixture evenly onto each tortilla.

This is where you have options. I like mine with a little lettuce and a little Skinny Ranch (thin sliced red onion too lately). Sometimes I throw some super finely chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, or even broccoli if I’m feeling extra healthy. After I decide what goes in I roll it up and chow down.

I promise that this recipe takes a heck of a lot less time to throw this together than it did to read this post. The most perfect lunch. I usually make two and throw one in the fridge for the next day or Eric eats the other one or I eat both and call it a day.

Anyway, I hope y’all are having a great week! Don’t forget to let me know how it goes if you make this recipe!

    I made this for lunch today for the first time. Itwas sooo delicious. Not to mention incredibly fast and easy to make. It uses ingredients that I have on hand all the time (except for the Frank’s buffalo sauce, but I will from now on). I put lettuce and tomato in the wrap and had baby carrots and cucumber on the side. Next time I will add the ranch dressing. Thank you Star!

    Another 5 star recipe. Just whipped this up for lunch. Had leftover chicken breast to use up. Delicious and super easy! Another winner!!

  3. No kidding.. we switched from a franks red hot to THIS Buffalo sauce at our restaurant and let me tell you it does not disappoint! I’m the only one in my house who eats this but it’s been a fav of mine since the beginning #top2021

    I had this tonight for dinner!! This was amazing. So good I felt like I was cheating. I used both garlic salt and ranch powder. I live in the buffalo NY area and this hits the spot when craving buffalo wings. Going to add this to my regular rotation. Quick filling and delicious!! Thank you for this amazing recipe. I am looking forward to making more from your website.

    This is a favorite of ours! So quick and easy and delicious! I typically make this for lunches during the week and it is so good!

    So simple but so good! I make a batch and use throughout the week, on a wrap on a sale or on crackers!

    These are so good! I love that it’s quick to put together with the Easy Baked Chicken that’s leftover.

  9. This recipe is SO delicious!! I’ve made it several times and loaded it with veggies. Thank you for so many amazing recipes!!

    Easy! Delicious! Staple ingredients! Couldn’t be better. What a hit with my husband, too! I added diced celery and used romaine leaves to line the tortillas. The veggies are a tasty addition to the wrap, like you said. Served it with Skinny Ranch and baby carrots/celery. Definitely one to add to the rotation. Thanks!

    I made this for lunch today and it was DELICIOUS! It’s also super easy and quick to throw together. Thank you for a new lunch option!

    My new favorite meal! I could eat this every single day (and honestly, probably will.) I’ve done it as a wrap, it would be amazing on a bed of lettuce like a buffalo salad, and I did it with the Tik Tok wrap hack — like the crunch wrap supreme recipe. For that I use the buffalo chicken mixture, tomatoes, romaine, and laughing cow cheese under the veggies as a binder. SO GOOD.

  13. 5 stars
    Such an easy and yummy supper! I have even seared them in a pan after wrapping them for an added crunch/texture. I have a son with a “Scandinavian” stomach so he likes to add extra Ranch dressing for dipping.

  14. 5 stars
    These are so good! Even my picky husband will eat them happily. Thank you for creating recipes that still taste great and are fun to eat so I can not go crazy while trying to keep my health in check 🙂

  15. I’m so confused. I put this into the recipe builder and it’s so many more points than 3 on blue. Please help! The wraps are 3, skinny cow wedges are 1, Reduced fat cheese is 1, Frank’s red is 1… I put all the ingredients in the recipe builder and put that it serves 2 and it still comes to 6 points. Thanks I’m advance!

    1. Your wraps are where it differs. I use Ole Wraps so my wraps are only one point. I’ll be sure to make it more clear that if you use different wraps then the points will probably change.

    If you’re a Buffalo chicken lover- look no further! This recipe is absolutely amazing, mouth watering AND a crowd pleaser. Thank you for making a light version of one of the best wrap combos out there! Love all your recipes but this is one of my favorites!!

    Great recipe! Easy and tasty. I didnt use much buffalo sauce because I’m not a fan of spicy but it gave it a little extra flavor that I did enjoy. I put it all into one big tortilla and honestly, it was too much! I only ate half and was done. But I’m so glad it wasnt a skimpy portion that left me hungry. I’ll do two portions from this next time.

  29. 5 stars
    Omg make this!! If you are a Buffalo fan, this is amazing! I’m only halfway through eating it and had to stop to leave a review. I’ve made similar versions of this, but this is by far the best. And it was so easy to make!

    1. That’s so amazing! Thanks so much for literally stopping to eat to leave a review. You’re the best! have a great week!

    I have been making this recipe about once a month for a couple years at this point. It is one of my absolute favorites for lunch prep!!! It is multifunctional too! I have used it as lunch, to make pinwheels for apps, and as a dip for parties!! Love this recipe!

  32. These wraps are so darn good!! I meal prepped them on Sunday so I would have lunches for the week, and today was the first day I tried them and I am very impressed!. Every recipe you create is easy and so tasty! You are my go to girl for great WW recipes!

    Thanks so much for sharing!!

      So easy & delicious. We love Buffalo chicken everything in this house, so a lightened up version is perfect.

    1. Bolthouse makes one. It is located in the produce/refrigerated section of most all grocery stores. It is super yummy.

  33. These are amazing!! I made some for my husband with a side of blue and he said it’s better than getting at a restaurant! For myself I cut out one wedge to save myself 2 points and it was incredible!!

    1. I haven’t tried so I can’t say for sure. If using a normal tortilla i’d say it’s totally fine, but I’m not sure how the low card tortillas freeze. I will definitely give them a try to find out though!

    1. I love the Ole Extreme Wellness High Fiber Low carb wraps! I also love the Tumaros Low-in-carb wraps (Those come in a bunch of different flavors!) These are each 1 Smart Point each, but not sure about points plus. =)
