Buffalo Chicken Wraps

My family LOVES buffalo wings! But who would’ve ever thought that you could have the spiciness of buffalo chicken and the coolness of the ranch dressing all rolled up in one wrap? Morgan, author of the Little House of Veggies, that’s who!

Morgan is a vegan chef, that blogs about healthy, animal-product free dishes. In fact, when I first saw this recipe, there were ingredients such as “Veganaise,” “seitan,” and “Earth Balance Butter” being used. After a doing a little Googling, I found that they were basically just the vegan equivalents of mayo, chicken, and butter. So, I just replaced them with the ingredients that I was familiar with. Morgan has a wonderful blog and I definitely encourage you to check it (and these wraps) out sometime!

Buffalo Chicken Wraps (Little House of Veggies)

  • 1 recipe Morgan’s Spicy Buffalo Sauce, recipe follows
  • 1 recipe Morgan’s Ranch, recipe follows
  • 20-25 chicken tenders (depending on the crowd size)
  • whole grain wraps or tortillas
  • romaine lettuce
  • 2 carrots, grated

Buffalo Sauce

  • 1/4 c Louisiana hot sauce
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder (optional)

Morgan’s Ranch

  • 1/2 c mayo
  • 1/4 c milk
  • handful fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp. dried dill or 3 tsp. fresh dill
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder (optional)
  • cracked black pepper

Start by combining the mayo, parsley, dill, garlic powder, and pepper in a bowl. Then add about a 1/4 c of milk until it comes to the consistency of Ranch dressing. Reserve.

Don’t be like me; don’t make a mess of your bowl, and don’t take a crummy picture of it when it’s finished.;)

Next, grill the chicken tenders and make the Buffalo sauce by combining the hot sauce, butter, and garlic powder in a saucepan. Let simmer until the chicken is ready.

When the chicken is ready, chop up the lettuce and grate the carrots. Put the chicken in the buffalo sauce, and shake it around until it’s coated. Put it inside the tortilla on a bed of carrots and lettuce, and top with the ranch sauce. YUMMY!
