These easy and delicious Healthier Buffalo Chicken Caesar Wraps pack and explosion of flavour in every bite. Each wrap is loaded with seared-to-perfection seasoned chicken breast tossed in a spicy, tangy Buffalo sauce, shredded lettuce, thinly-sliced onion and my absolute favourite clean-ingredient Side Dish Caesar dressing (I could drink this stuff).

What I love most about these healthier wraps is that they’re grain-free, gluten-free and can easily be made dairy-free by omitting the small amount of butter. But they’re still packed with flavour and texture.

Ingredients You Need for Healthier Buffalo Chicken Caesar Wraps

  • Chicken: I used boneless, skinless chicken breast to keep things a little leaner and lower in calories. I like to butterfly the breasts to help speed up the cooking process and prevent the chicken from drying out. For best results, use a meat thermometer to cook the chicken to at least 160F. Set it aside, cover with foil and let it rest at least 5 minutes so it comes up to 165F and stays juicy as you slice it.
  • Spices: A very simple combination of smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper is used to season the chicken before it gets griddled to perfection. But of course, feel free to experiment with your favourite spice blends.
  • Buffalo Sauce: I keep it nice and simple with some good ol’ Frank’s Red Hot. It’s easy to find, affordable, delicious and made with clean ingredients.
  • Butter: Honestly, I feel like you can skip the butter in this recipe. It’s really not needed because you get so much flavour from the Caesar dressing and as long as you don’t overcook the chicken it will be juicy. But, if you want to add some butter to Buffalo sauce, I won’t stop you.
  • Lettuce: For crunch, juiciness and a neutral flavour, I recommend using Romaine lettuce. I like to thinly shred it so that you can easily wrap the tortilla and get a mouthful of lettuce in each bite. And to help get the lettuce extra crisp, try soaking it in some ice water for a couple of minutes first before drying it very well in a salad spinner.
  • Onion: I know onion isn’t usually found in a caesar salad, but I love it in these healthier Buffalo chicken wraps. It adds a sharpness that pairs really well with the other ingredients. You can omit it if you’re not a fan.
  • Caesar Dressing: I used Side Dish Miso Caesar here. It tastes AMAZING, is dairy-free, refined sugar-free, gluten-free and made with high-quality ingredients. Highly-recommend getting at least 3 bottles to keep on hand for everything from salads, to wraps, to dipping chicken wings, to you name it! Use code RONNY10 to save 10%.
  • Burrito-Size Tortillas: To keep things grain-free and gluten-free, I used Siete Burrito-Size Tortillas. The trick is to let them completely thaw first and lightly heat them on a griddle or in a pan for around 15 seconds per side, just until they’re warm, soft and pliable enough to wrap without cracking. If you heat them for too long, they’ll get brittle and won’t fold. Once you’ve assembled the wraps, place them back onto the griddle or pan to brown them and give them some texture.

What is Buffalo Chicken?

Buffalo chicken typically refers to a style of cooking chicken that involves coating it in a mildly spicy sauce made from a combination of hot sauce and butter. Sometimes the chicken is first fried, other times it’s baked or grilled. The origins of Buffalo chicken can be traced back to Buffalo, New York, hence the name. The most common hot sauce used to make Buffalo chicken is undoubtedly Frank’s RedHot, but in recent years other companies have started making their own versions of a mild, vinegar based hot sauce.

Buffalo chicken takes various forms with everything from chicken wings, chicken tenders, sandwiches, wraps, salads, and even pizza toppings. It’s a delicious way to add some mild spice, tang and flavour to just about any dish.

Seasoned Chicken Cooked on a Griddle

Substitution Ideas

Chicken: I used boneless and skinless chicken breast here for less calories. For a richer and juicier finished product, substitute boneless and skinless chicken thighs, which have a higher fat content.

Seasonings: Think of the the salt, pepper, garlic powder and smoked paprika as a starting point. You can spice up your chicken however you like and use your favourite seasoning blends.

Lettuce: I like to keep these wraps super simple with some crunchy romaine lettuce. It’s crunchy, neutral in flavour and gives the right amount of juiciness in each bite. For more nutrition and some added flavour, try adding or substituting some thinly shredded Tuscan kale or your favourite lettuce greens, such as arugula.

Caesar Dressing: If you have the time, try making my Whole30 Caesar Dressing recipe from scratch. It’s super easy and only takes a few minutes. If time is of the essence, grab a bottle of Side Dish Miso Caesar (use code RONNY10 for 10% off). It’s by far my favourite bottled caesar dressing and is made with much healthier ingredients than other store bought dressings.

Tortillas: Feel free to use your favourite tortillas here. Just make sure they’re large enough to fill with all of the ingredients without cracking – 11″ is the minimum. Or, for a low-carb and keto option, try wrapping the Buffalo chicken in some iceberg lettuce. If you go this route, you probably won’t need the romaine lettuce.

What To Serve with the Chicken Wraps

You will most likely have some extra romaine lettuce so use that as a side salad to serve with your Healthier Buffalo Chicken Caesar Wraps. You can top the lettuce with some tomato, onion, cucumber and avocado to make it more substantial. Or, keep it super simple with a drizzle of that delicious Side Dish Miso Caesar dressing.

Can I Make the Buffalo Chicken Caesar Wraps In Advance?

One of the best things about this recipe is that you can prepare the wraps ahead of time for an easy lunch or dinner option. For best results, I recommend cooking the chicken and assembling the wraps beforehand. When ready to serve, place them on a griddle or frying pan to toast the tortilla and warm through the fillings.

You can also assemble the Buffalo Chicken Caesar Wraps in advance and freeze them in an air-tight bag for up to 6 months. When ready to serve, you can let them defrost in the fridge until completely thawed and place them on the griddle to warm through. You can microwave them for a few minutes from frozen before toasting them on the griddle. Or you can put them in a toaster oven or air fryer from frozen and cook until toasted and warmed through. If using an air fryer, I recommend lightly spraying them with a little bit of avocado oil first so they don’t scorch.

Healthier Buffalo Chicken Caesar Wraps

These easy and delicious Healthier Buffalo Chicken Caesar Wraps pack and explosion of flavour in every bite.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 4 wraps


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, thinly shredded
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Side Dish Miso Caesar dressing
  • 4 Siete burrito size grain-free wraps


  • Using a sharp knife, butterfly the chicken breasts in half. In a large bowl, combine the chicken breasts, olive oil, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper. Toss well to coat and set aside.
  • Preheat a griddle or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook, undisturbed, until golden brown, around 5 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until golden brown and the thickest part of the chicken registers 160F. Transfer the chicken to a cutting boar, cover with foil to keep warm and set aside.
  • Add the butter to a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Heat the butter until it has melted, add the Buffalo sauce, whisk to combine, and cook until warmed through, around 2 minutes. Thinly slice the chicken breast, add it to the saucepan with the Buffalo sauce and toss to coat.
  • Wipe the griddle or frying pan clean and return it to a medium-low heat. Add the tortillas and warm them through 10 to 15 seconds per side. Place the warmed tortillas onto a board, top with the Buffalo chicken, shredded lettuce, sliced onion and a drizzle of Side Dish Miso Caesar. Wrap tightly like a burrito, place them back onto the griddle and cook until golden, around 3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until golden, around 3 more minutes.
  • Serve the burritos with any leftover shredded lettuce drizzled with more of the Miso Caesar dressing.
