BBQ Chicken Wraps

BBQ Chicken Wraps

Quick BBQ chicken using rotisserie chicken and store-bought BBQ sauce is one of my go-to “I have no time to cook” meals. It doesn’t get much easier than tossing chicken with sauce–without sacrificing flavor.

This recipe shortcut has shown up a few times on the site — this 15-minute BBQ Chicken Sandwich Recipe, this easy BBQ Chicken Salad, or this round-up of 3 simple BBQ Chicken dinners.

So today we’re adding to the collection with these BBQ Chicken Wraps and these totally fit the M.O. — extremely quick, super tasty, and easy to assemble. We’re using rotisserie chicken, store-bought BBQ sauce, a few veggies, and some extra-sharp Cheddar cheese. Just toss it all together and load the filling into tortillas! Doesn’t get too much easier than this!

BBQ Chicken Wrap Shortcut Suggestions

  • Use a rotisserie chicken — Or better yet, shredded rotisserie chicken meat. (See the ” quick tip” box below).
  • Use the food processor to quickly chop the veggies and fresh cilantro.
  • Purchase pre-grated cheese — Freshly grated cheese is always best, but these BBQ Chicken Wraps are supposed to be quick–so I’ll make an exception! 

QUICK TIP

We love the hot-and-ready rotisserie chickens at Costco®. They’re so good and have so much meat on them (enough to make a good number of wraps)! But, for the fastest possible prep time, I recommend buying rotisserie chicken meat that has already been pulled from the bones and shredded. You’ll find this in the deli area of most grocery stores.

Wrap ingredients worth mentioning

  • BBQ sauce. Any BBQ sauce you enjoy is one you’ll likely enjoy in these BBQ Chicken Wraps. My personal favorite is Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ® (original) sauce or Stubb’s Original BBQ® sauce.
  • Tortillas: Use any tortilla for these wraps and I recommend using one you already know you love. To keep things on the healthier side, I typically use Olé Xtreme Wellness® wraps. The tortillas are 100% whole wheat, have a good whole-wheat flavor and light texture. (They are what you see photographed in this post.)
  • Cheese. The cheese makes a big difference flavor-wise in these BBQ Chicken Wraps. We like a sharp or extra-sharp Cheddar best.

QUICK TIP

If you’ve never folded up a wrap or burrito, I promise it’s easy once you get the hang of it! Here are some more detailed step-by-step photos or a video tutorial.

Equipment

  • Olive oil cooking spray

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked and shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup EACH: finely diced fresh cilantro, diced red onion, diced red pepper
  • 3/4 cup good quality BBQ sauce
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • fine sea salt and pepper
  • 6 large flour tortillas

Instructions

  • COMBINE: Add everything except for the tortillas to a large bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (I add 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, but add to preference depending on the saltiness of BBQ sauce.) Gently mix with a wooden spoon. If needed, add a spoonful or two more BBQ sauce if the mixture is looking dry at all.
  • ASSEMBLE: Set out tortillas in an assembly line on a clean flat surface. Divide the filling evenly among the 6 tortillas (about 1/2 cup of the mix per tortilla) and spread each portion on the left side of each tortilla. Gently fold up into a tight burrito. (See Note 1.)
  • BROWN: Generously grease all of the wraps with olive oil cooking spray (on all sides). Lightly spray a large nonstick skillet and heat to medium-high heat. Add the wraps (2 or 3 at a time so there is plenty of room), seam side down into the skillet. Cook, rotating with tongs, every 1-2 minutes or until golden brown and crispy on each side. Repeat until all the wraps are crisped. Serve hot out of the skillet!

Recipe Notes

Note 1: To fold the wrap, fold the edge up over the filling, fold in the two sides, and continue rolling the wrap until you use up all of the tortilla. You can see photos to illustrate these instructions here.
