Easy Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Buffalo Chicken Wraps are so tasty and easy to make. The Buffalo Chicken is cooked in bulk in the slow cooker and is perfect cook once, eat twice recipe!

I had my crockpot barbecue chicken recipe on my meal plan a few weeks back…  

Everything was ready:  Crock Pot out, liner in and chicken defrosted.

Turns out, what I didn’t have was barbeque sauce.  (I guess we’d used it all up with the 15 pounds of meat my hubby smoked over Easter weekend.)

I did have a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo Sauce though, so I went with that!

Buffalo Chicken in the Slow Cooker

  • To make buffalo chicken, I followed the crock pot barbeque chicken recipe almost exactly:
  • Place the chicken at the bottom of the crock pot and cover chicken with about a cup and a half of the buffalo sauce.  
  • Cook on low for about 6ish hours.
  • The only difference was about 30 minutes before the end of the cooking time, I tossed in about 3/4 of a block of low-fat cream cheese.
  • Use a soup ladle to remove most of the extra liquid.
  • Once the cheese seemed melted, I shredded the chicken and mixed the cream chees and remaining cooking liquid all together.  

Interesting fact: cream cheese doesn’t really melt the way you think it would- it stays in the block form and just gets really soft.  I added the cream cheese to help cut the spiciness for me and the kids, but you could omit the cream cheese if you want.

Ok, this stuff is  like crack – we couldn’t stay out of it!  

In fact, for the first meal, we just ate the creamy buffalo chicken off crackers.

For the 2nd meal (and third), we made wraps!

I love recipes that allow you cook once and eat twice, and this one is excellent. (So is the barbeque chicken recipe, btw.)  Plus it freezes well.  

These wrap photos were taken after the creamy buffalo chicken had been frozen and defrosted.

Enjoy!
