Foodspiration #2: Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Last night my mom and I decided to give one of my many Pinterest dinner ideas a try! A few weeks back I shared a bucket list of sorts with recipes that I wanted to make sometime soon, all which came from my boards on Pinterest. Now even though the meal we decided upon last night was not from the specific list I posted, I am still proud to say a Pinterest creation was made - Buffalo Chicken Wraps!


The ingredients:
• Egg roll wrappers
• Shredded chicken
• Dry cole slaw
• Buffalo Sauce
• Ranch for serving
• *optional - blue cheese*
• && chicken rice for a side dish 

Note: Below are the brands we used, yet brands may vary based on where you are located.


Step 1- Prepare the chicken:
• Used Tyson Grilled & Ready Pulled Chicken Breast
• Heat in skillet on medium for 5-7 minutes
• During cooking used spatula to further shred chicken 

Right: before cooking - Left: cooked

• Stir chicken and hot sauce together

Note: Amount of sauce to use is your personal choice depending on spice preference. 


Step 2- Make the wraps:
• Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
• Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray
• Lay egg roll wrappers on a clean surface
• Place one tablespoon of cole slaw on diagonal corner of wrapper
• Place 2 tablespoons of chicken onto of the slaw
• *if using blue cheese add 1 tablespoon here*
• Fold and roll the wrapper
• && repeat 

Note: We made 20 wraps and had 8 left over after serving 4 people.


• Ready to be cooked!


Step 3- Baking instructions 
• Bake for 12-15 minutes
• Rolls should be crisp and turn a light golden brown


Side Dish- Knorr Rice Sides:
• Boil 2 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of margarine and package contents
• Stir and cover
• Reduce heat and let simmer for 7 minutes or until rice is tender
• Let stand for 2 minutes 

Note: I used 2 packages so all was doubled.

Right: during cooking - Left: cooked

They turned out incredibly delicious and were a hit with the fam! As we were eating, we talked about how easy it would be to make these with other sauces and even shrimp. We'll be experimenting!

    1. This was my first time experimenting with one and I'm sad its taken me so long to do so! Ohhh, jalapeño peppers would have been a real great addition! Reading that made me think banana peppers would have been too!
