Here’s everything you need to know to make this buffalo chicken roll ups recipe!
Typically a rollup would include a carb-heavy tortilla… but not this buffalo chicken recipe! In this recipe, 2 roll ups are only ONE carb!
All of the ingredients are items you’re most likely already familiar with, which is why I love the ease of this recipe…
Deli Sliced Chicken – One thing to be careful of here: deli meats range in how “dry” they are, and dry deli meat doesn’t work well for rolling into roll ups. If you can’t find moist deli sliced chicken, feel free to sub in any other type of deli meat such as turkey or ham.
Blue Cheese – Blue cheese is a must for the classic buffalo chicken flavor combo. But, if you’re not down with it, swap in any low carb cheese of your liking. Feta is a great sub and is low in carbs too!
Hot Sauce – You can use whatever hot sauce you prefer, however, Frank’s Red Hot is the traditional hot sauce used for all buffalo chicken recipes.
Although packed with flavor, their original version is not very hot (which is why I love it!) so if you’re looking for something hotter, try their XTRA Hot (about 4x hotter), or opt for a spicier hot sauce.
Celery – This low carb vegetables here to add some crunch to our roll ups.
