Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels

Summer is here, school is out and everyone gets to really enjoy everything! So many activities, so many things to do first, there is barely any time for properly cooked meals.

I find myself during summer months choosing wraps, salads, fresh food finger bites…just easy to make recipes that can make such great picnic items. This summer is going to be no different with a small addition to our favorites – Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels. It’s so simple to whip up and the taste is so addictive! Plus that dipping sauce is heavenly.

Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels 

Yield: 25-30 pinwheels

  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cooked shredded
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 cup buffalo sauce
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 large flour tortillas


Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add shredded chicken breasts, buffalo sauce and stir to combine. Add cream cheese too and mix to incorporate well and get a smooth, creamy mixture. Remove from heat and allow to cool down for 5 minutes.

Spread filling on flour tortillas. Sprinkle sliced spring onions and roll up tortillas tight, without adding any pressure. Repeat with remaining filling and tortillas. Add rolled wraps to a plate, cover with plastic wrap and place them in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before slicing (if you are in a hurry, place them in the freezer for 10 minute to cool them faster).

Slice the rolls, using a serrated knife and add a toothpick to each roll.
