Buffalo Chicken Wraps

there is a restaurant that we go to when we go visit friends that live about 35mins away from us. it's really yummy and my fav dish is their spicy chicken wrap with sweet potato fries. so yum. but...since it's 35mins away, it's not something you can just have on a whim especially when your hubby doesn't get home till 7:45pm every night. so...i decided to start making my own! and now....since these wraps are just can make your own too!

you are going to need the following: chicken breasts (i use the extra trimmed thin ones), your fav buffalo sauce, blue cheese dressing, celery, lettuce (i usually use a salad mix with a mix of different lettuce), tortillas, and sweet potato fries

either the day before or a few hours before, marinate your chicken in the wing sauce/hot sauce. this batch marinated for about 3hrs.

when you're ready to cook, start your sweet potato fries first. i cook mine longer then suggested because i like mine crispy. cook the chicken then dice and put in a container to cool down. i usually put a little more sauce in to coat all the chicken a bit more. you can use this the same night, or let it soak in all the yummy sauce goodness in over night and it will be even BETTER!!

slice your celery into thin strips.......and i usually cut more to munch on later :)

then you're ready to assemble: lay your tortilla flat, spoon a decent amount of blue cheese dressing on first. then layer with your lettuce, a few slices of celery, then your chicken. if you really love wing sauce/hot sauce, then pour some more on! go nuts! then fold your sides and cut on a diagonal for a pretty presentation.

serve with the fries and enjoy!!! as another yummy treat, drizzle honey and sprinkle cinnamon on top of your fries. so delish and yummy.

if you cook and eat in the same night, your leftovers (if there are any) will be even more amazing the next day. hope you enjoy and if you make these, let me know how they turned out!
