Healthy/Low Calorie Buffalo Chicken Wrap 275 Calories

I found this recipe on and I just had to try it and here is what I came up with.  My husband and I are HUGE buffalo chicken with blu cheese fans, so if we could have a healthy version of it, AWESOME! I wanted to give this one a shot and in the end, Adam said, "Make these again.  They were really good!"

Makes: 4 servings

Active Time:
Total Time:


  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce, such as Frank's RedHot
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 4 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 large tomato, diced


  1. Whisk hot pepper sauce, 2 tablespoons vinegar and cayenne pepper in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken tenders; cook until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add to the bowl with the hot sauce; toss to coat well.
3.  Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, pepper and the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar in a small bowl. Stir in blue cheese.

4.  To assemble wraps: Lay a tortilla on a work surface or plate. Spread with 1 tablespoon blue cheese sauce and top with one-fourth of the chicken, lettuce, celery and tomato. Drizzle with some of the hot sauce remaining in the bowl and roll into a wrap sandwich. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
