Buffalo Chicken Pinwheel Wraps
I love these Buffalo Chicken Pinwheel Wraps because they’re an easy way to make a traditional wrap into a fun afternoon snack or a great finger food option for parties or game day munching. This recipe makes one wrap for 2 snack sized servings of pinwheels, but you could easily make more if you’re serving a large crowd. The pinwheels are served chilled or room temperature, so they’re perfect to bring to work or to a social gathering, and they’re cheesy with a spicy kick so they’re sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Not only are these Buffalo Chicken Pinwheel Wraps delicious and easy, they’re a great snack or lunch option because a snack-sized serving (1/2 the recipe) packs 16 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. Now, that’s a snack that will fill you up and keep you satisfied until dinner! If you eat the entire recipe for lunch, you’re getting double those numbers, so either way you’re in great shape.
One of the reasons these pinwheel wraps pack such a nutritional punch is because they’re made with a Flatout* light Original Flatbread. Many of you probably already know I’ve been working with Flatout all year to bring you tasty flatbread recipes, and one of my favorite things about their products (in addition to the taste and versatility) is the nutrition content. The flatbread used in this recipe has 8 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein just on its own, so it’s really the perfect blank canvas to create hearty, healthy and filling snacks or meals. I’ve used them to make wraps, pizzas, pinwheels…get creative with toppings/filling and the possibilities are endless!

Buffalo Chicken Pinwheel Wraps
Yield: 2 snack servings or 1 lunch serving
- 1 Flatout Light Original Flatbread
- 2 wedges of The Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Garlic and Herb cheese, softened to room temperature
- 2 tablespoons diced matchstick or shredded carrots
- 2 oz cooked chicken breast, diced or shredded
- 2 teaspoons Buffalo wing sauce
- 1 tablespoon light blue cheese dressing (I used Marzetti)
- ½ cup chopped or torn Romaine or Green leaf lettuce
- Lay the flatbread out on a cutting board and use a knife to spread the cheese wedges across the entire surface of the flatbread. Sprinkle the little carrot pieces across the surface and top with the chicken, leaving about an inch without toppings (but still spread with cheese) at one of the shorter, curved ends of the flatbread. Drizzle the wing sauce over the chicken and then follow with the blue cheese dressing. Spread the lettuce over the other toppings.
- Beginning with one of the shorter, rounded ends of the flatbread (the one opposite from the end without toppings), begin to tightly roll the flatbread over the toppings to form a wrap, finishing by pressing the cheesy surface of the end without toppings to the side of the roll. Place the wrap seam side down and use a sharp knife to slice the wrap into 8 “pinwheel” slices. You may want to finish each pinwheel piece by sticking a sandwich pick (long toothpick) through it.
