Slow cooker Buffalo chicken wraps


Chicken breasts with cream cheese, hot sauce, and celery are cooked until tender in the slow cooker and then topped with blue cheese for these slow cooker Buffalo chicken wraps. Today I'm sharing this recipe which is inspired by Kate's Recipe Box for some #FoodBloggerLove. I enjoy Kate's blog a lot -- we are both moms and we both post a lot of family friendly food. I noticed while browsing through her recipes that she cooks a lot of recipes with Buffalo flavors like Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwiches, Buffalo Cauliflower "Wings", Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Salad, Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas, and more! So, being from Buffalo I was immediately intrigued since those are some favorite flavors in our house as well. I also noticed that she uses the slow cooker frequently (like this Slow Cooker Pepperoni Pizza Soup which has been on my to-make list), which is something I also love! When I saw her recipe for Grilled Buffalo Chicken Wraps, I decided to make a Buffalo chicken wrap recipe of my own, but using the slow cooker to make the chicken. These wraps are delicious! So simple to put together and also very flavorful. Slow cookers meals are such a time saver for me. This recipe will make about 5-6 wraps.

Thanks to Kate for the inspiration and all the terrific looking recipe ideas! Check out Kate's blog and give her a follow on Facebook, Instagram, & Pinterest!



Slow cooker Buffalo chicken wraps
olive oil for greasing
~1.5 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 celery rib, halved lengthwise and chopped
3 oz. cream cheese, cut into cubes
1/4 cup Frank's hot sauce, plus more for serving
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles, plus more for serving
burrito size tortillas, for serving
chopped Romaine lettuce, for serving

Lightly grease the slow cooker with a little olive oil. Place the chicken inside and sprinkle with a little salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Sprinkle with the garlic powder. Add the green onions, celery, cream cheese, and hot sauce.

Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours, until the chicken is easily falling apart. Shred the chicken and then stir in the blue cheese and let heat for another 10-15 minutes.

Place your desired amount of chicken on a warmed tortilla and top with extra hot sauce and blue cheese, if desired. Top with lettuce (you can also add chopped tomato or some chopped celery tops as well). Fold up the tortilla and enjoy!

  4. What a nice recipe! I use my slow cooker a lot more during warm weather than the rest of the year, so your timing is perfect. And what a neat idea! Love the idea of these wraps -- a more healthy way to get the great taste of buffalo chicken without all the "bad" stuff!
