These Spicy Chicken Wraps are made with golden-brown chicken tenders, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes, drizzled with a spicy chili sauce and wrapped in a crispy grilled tortilla.

David and I collaborated and came up with our own version of the Spicy Chicken Wraps we enjoyed at the well-known fast food restaurant, but our wraps are even better!

How to Make Spicy Chicken Wraps

Make the Sauce:

Combine all ingredients for the spicy chili sauce in a small bowl. Cover the sauce and set it in the refrigerator, while preparing the chicken.

Bread the Chicken Tenders:

First, combine beaten egg with milk in a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl, mix flour salt, baking soda, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper; whisk together until well combined.

Bread the chicken by first coating the chicken tender with seasoned flour.

Next, dip the floured chicken into egg and milk mixture.

Then dip the coated chicken back into the flour. Arrange breaded chicken onto a plate. Repeat for each piece.

After all of the chicken is battered, pop the plate into the fridge for at least 10 minutes before frying. This step will help the breading to stick on the chicken when frying.

Fry The Breaded Chicken Tenders:

Heat oil to 350 degrees F. (Use a minimal amount of oil possible. I try not to go over ¼ to ½-inch deep inside a pan.)

When the oil is up to temperature, fry 2 to 4 pieces of chicken at a time (do not overcrowd your pan). Fry until golden brown on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending upon thickness.

Drain on a rack or on paper towels.

Assemble The Spicy Chicken Wraps:

Heat the tortillas or wraps per package instructions or over a gas burner on the stove.

Place a 2 to 3 chicken tenders onto the prepared tortilla top with cheese, chopped lettuce, and tomato. Then drizzle with spicy chili sauce. Wrap it like you would a burrito if using large tortillas or fold like a taco if using small tortillas.

These spicy chicken wraps are so delicious! I’m gonna put these into the meal rotation a little more often. It has been way too long. If you like spicy but not overwhelmingly spicy food, we highly recommend them.
