A couple of weeks ago we went to the park for dinner and created different chicken wraps. Last time, I told you about the Southwestern Chipotle Chicken Sandwich Wraps we made, but we also made another kind of wrap, so now I will share the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich Wraps recipe we made as well.
As I mentioned in the previous recipe, often we make the chicken up ahead of time and freeze it. When we know we are going to be needing a quick dinner or something we can take with us, we thaw it just before we’re ready to go and then make the wraps up fresh. They are great for a quick week night meal, but they are also perfect for school lunches, picnics and other events.
We also often make our own homemade flour tortillas – we normally do that when we are making the wraps because they are fairly quick to throw together. However, we also buy flour tortillas from the store, as was the case the day we made these to take to the park.
