Crispy Chicken Wraps

These Crispy Chicken Wraps are so light and refreshing for dinner. And I can ‘hide’ a couple veggies in it and even trick myself into eating them!

Meals that I can “hide” vegetables are always a win at my house. I can trick the kids and myself into eating one we wouldn’t eat on their own. Crispy Chicken Wraps have quite a bit of green in them, perfect for a quick weeknight meal that packs in the good stuff. 

If you buy a rotisserie chicken, then this meal can be made in about 15 minutes. Often I use boneless skinless chicken breast, so it takes closer to about 30 minutes because I have to cook the chicken first, then shred it. 

The recipe originally came from something I had found on Pinterest years ago. But we’ve changed it so much since then I don’t even remember what the original had in it and what we’ve changed. 

Last year we had celery growing in the garden, so when we harvested a lot of it I froze it in small pieces and like to use that for meals that the celery is cooked into things. It isn’t as crunchy as fresh celery, but it works well enough for this recipe. 

I also typically have green onion growing in the garden, so I’ll grab that from the backyard, too. Because of that, this meal doesn’t cost much at all. And it’s made with ingredients that are basic staples in my house. 

Step by Step

Pull the meat off of the rotisserie chicken and prepare all ingredients.

Ingredients for crispy chicken wraps: tortilla shells next to stainless steel bowls with chopped celery, chopped green onions, parsley, hot sauce, sour cream, mayonnaise, and glass measuring cups of shredded cheddar cheese and shredded rotisserie chicken all on a white surface

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, cilantro, green onion, celery, sour cream, and hot sauce until it’s combined.

Stir in the shredded chicken.

Place a scoop of shredded cheese down the middle of each tortilla shells.

Add some of the chicken mixture on top of the cheese.

Roll each of the shells burrito style. This is the hardest part of the meal for me. I may have lived in Texas for a few years now, but I don’t have the burrito rolling technique down yet. I may have to find some videos online to learn from.

Warm a large skillet over medium heat for a few minutes. Then place two of the burritos seam side down on the pan. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes, sometimes up to 5, until the bottom is golden brown. Carefully flip and cook the other side until browned as well.

Continue with each wrap until they are all cooked. Serve warm. I like to top mine with a bit more cheese and dip them in Ranch dressing. But neither is necessary to enjoy this meal.

  1. We have crossed a few rivers with this one, from renaming Broccoli and Cauliflower as little trees to Dinosaur snacks. This looks really yummy as we also have a whole lot of chicken, plus you can hide whatever.

    1. Oh, I haven’t heard “dinosaur snacks”, I like that one! My sister has a lot of trouble with her son eating it who is obsessed with dinos, I’ll definitely be sharing that with her!

  2. Great recipe, Stephanie. Meals that hide vegetables was something my mother always tried so hard with us when we were young. Just wondering, could there be any replacement for chicken in this recipe as I am vegetarian.

    1. Thanks, Ria! Sometimes you do what you have to do as a mom to get all that goodness in them! I’ve never tried this with anything other than chicken, so I’m not sure what else could be used in it.

  3. These look absolutely mouthwatering! I need to try these over the weekend for my kids. They would go nuts for them.

    1. It’s a great combination! I’ve never tried it with any of the meat substitutes, so, unfortunately, have no experience with what that would taste like if you wanted to try it, too.

  4. I’m lucky that my toddler still eats most vegetables. I’m waiting for him to become a more picky eater, but right now, I’ll take what I can get! “Hiding” vegetables for my husband is always helpful though. 🙂

    1. That’s the best part of making something on your own, you can customize it just how you want. I love cheese so I will always have a lot of cheese in mine 🙂

    1. Why is lunch always the hardest meal?! I hate lunchtime and I hate packing lunches. Thankfully, both of my boys have lunch included with their school, so I only have to worry about myself and them on days they aren’t in school.

  5. They look so delicious and elegantly wrapped. I see nothing wrong with your wrapping technique in my opinion. They would be a hit at a bbq party too.

    1. Thanks, I am slowly getting better at wrapping things like this 🙂 I didn’t even think about these for a party, they would be perfect cut in half for people to grab as a quick light food that can be eaten without mess!
