  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce, such as Frank's RedHot
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 4 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 large tomato, diced

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk hot pepper sauce, 2 tablespoons vinegar and cayenne pepper in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken tenders; cook until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add to the bowl with the hot sauce; toss to coat well.
  3. Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, pepper and the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar in a small bowl. Stir in blue cheese.
  4. To assemble wraps: Lay a tortilla on a work surface or plate. Spread with 1 tablespoon blue cheese sauce and top with one-fourth of the chicken, lettuce, celery and tomato. Drizzle with some of the hot sauce remaining in the bowl and roll into a wrap sandwich. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  • Eat neat: Keeping the filling inside a wrap or burrito can be a challenge, especially if you're on the go. That's why we recommend wrapping your burrito in foil so you can pick it up and eat it without losing the filling, peeling back the foil as you go.

Must try! The other reviewers are right - these are delicious! I love the taste of buffalo wings but I can't handle too much spice - so I left the cayenne pepper out of the hot sauce mixture and it was perfect. The blue cheese dressing was delicious and I even sprinkled a few extra crumbles on top because I love blue cheese. I added in some diced cucumber as well. Just finished wolfing down two of these and feel like something with this many vegetables shouldn't taste so gooood.... Pros: Delicious, easy, healthy Cons: Messy, some prep time

Great Lunch I made this buffalo chicken wrap to bring to work for lunch. I prepped the sauce and chicken and stored them in airtight containers. At lunchtime, I assembled the wrap. Everything was so easy. I was too lazy to cook the chicken tenders so in place of the tenders, I used 2 cans of chicken breast. We were out of bleu cheese, so I substituted feta (as did another reviewer) and it was great. I rounded out the meal with a handful of baby carrots. For me, this lunch tasted light and crisp with a bit of zing from the hot sauce. I look forward to having it for the rest of the week and would definitely make this again. Pros: crisp, satisfying

Great flavor profile The dressing and sauce are just about perfect in this recipe. I like to substitute apple cider vinegar for half of the white vinegar. I also season the chicken with sea salt and pepper a few minutes before cooking, and sprinkle a little flour on it just before cooking for a little extra crispiness. This recipe makes a great salad as well, just increase the lettuce and omit the wrap. Pros: Easy to make, Tastes like it's really bad for you.

My Husband and I do not like blue cheese so we replaced that with Feta cheese and it is wonderful!

Pretty tasty and really easy for a last minute meal. Used plain wraps, and used ranch dressing for the picky kid. The blue cheese was yummy for the grown ups, and we dipped the leftover chicken in the leftover dressing. The celery added a nice crunch. Will definately make again.

We make this almost every 2 weeks. My husband likes that it has the same flavors as what he gets from the pizza shop. I like that it's so easy to make. The yogurt/blue cheese dressing is definitely lighter than blue cheese dressing, but it does the trick when everything is loaded into the wrap.

This is wonderful...I cheat on the bleu cheese sauce and use the light bottled dressing from Trader Joe's and sprinkle bleu cheese crumbles over the top. Suzanne, San Diego, CA
