Buffalo Chicken Wraps

I saw these wraps in the grocery store and was inspired!

To make buffalo chicken wraps, that is.  These wraps are very healthy - whole wheat, multi-grain, high-fiber and high-protein.  And they passed the test: my husband liked them.

So I took something pretty unhealthy (buffalo wings) and turned it into a healthy wrap full of veggies.  (Please don't expect this type of recipe transformation out of me ever again.  Thank you.)

The only thing bad is the blue cheese dressing.  And what are wings without blue cheese???

Answer: not worth eating.

These were yummy: all the flavors of buffalo wings and celery sticks dipped in blue cheese turned into a quick & easy weeknight dinner full of vegetables and buffalo-y flavor.

Buffalo Chicken Wraps

4 flatbread wraps or large tortillas (I used Flatout Multi-Grain Flatbread)
3-4 grilled or sauteed chicken breasts, sliced into strips
1/2 cup buffalo sauce
1/2 cup baby carrots, sliced in half lengthwise
1 1/2 cups lettuce, sliced thin
1/2 English cucumber, sliced into thin sticks
1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
Blue cheese dressing, for serving

Toss the chicken strips with the buffalo sauce.  Make four wraps using all ingredients.  Serve with blue cheese dressing.
