I have a confession to make. During the summer I often find myself coming up completely dry when it’s time to come up with ideas for dinner. I would much rather just go to one of our favorite restaurants, sit on their patio, enjoy the summer weather and let someone else do all of the work. Well, I know that’s not a good idea to do all of the time. It gets expensive and I know we eat better at home. So I have to limit how much we go out and I have to try and get my creative juices flowing in my own kitchen!
So of course, yesterday I was struggling with what to make for dinner, nothing sounded good. But while Kelly and I were out for a walk we started talking about food (crazy, I know) and she was telling me about these chicken buffalo wraps that they would have for dinner at their sorority. I thought they sounded really good and I also thought that would be a really quick and easy thing to make for dinner.
So I started thinking about how I would like to make my own buffalo chicken wraps and realized I already had almost everything I needed. I just had to make a really quick trip to the store for a couple of ingredients. I used some shredded chicken that I already had on hand in the freezer and for the sauce I stirred some buffalo sauce into ranch dressing. For some crunch, I chopped up some celery and for a little extra nutrition, I layered in some fresh spinach. Of course I added some cheese and then I grilled the wraps (inside on a grill pan) to melt the cheese and to crisp up the flatbread.
These wraps were quick, easy and delicious, perfect for a weeknight dinner or lunch!
Buffalo Chicken Wraps

- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- pepper, to taste
- fresh baby spinach
- 4 of your favorite wraps (I used flatbread, but flour tortillas would work great, too)
