Healthy Recipe: Buffalo Chicken Wrap

I love spicy, especially anything buffalo – buffalo wings, buffalo strips, and buffalo chicken burgers.  With this kind of love, it was just a matter of time that I would figure out a healthy way to eat it.  Thus, the healthy buffalo chicken wrap.

Buffalo Chicken Wrap

Ingredients
2 tablespoons  Frank’s Red Hot
3 tablespoons  white vinegar, divided
1/4 teaspoon  cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound  chicken tenders
2 tablespoons  reduced-fat mayo
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
Directions
1. Whisk Franks Red Hot, 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 mayo, 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 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.
With less than 300 calories in one wrap, this is a wonderful low calorie, and super filling meal.  I ate it for dinner, but you could easily bring this as lunch to work, and assemble it there.  Enjoy!
