Buffalo Chicken Wrap…Quick Dinner Recipe for the Holidays – and it’s Weight Watcher Friendly

The holiday season is fast upon us and I’m already feeling overwhelmed.  Being that I have been sick since the last week of October, I am definitely playing catch up with decorating, shopping and, well…everything.

At this time of year I like to have quick-supper items on hand to make my life a bit easier.  Weight Watchers makes it easy to maintain and still lose weight during the holidays. I recently experimented with a recipe because I was having a craving for Buffalo chicken flavor.  This is what I created:

To make cooking even easier, I precook a lot of chicken, separate it and package it in  individual freezer bags.  Even if I forget to take a package out of the freezer, it thaws very quickly.

I choose to boil the boneless, skinless chicken breasts. This keeps the meat very moist and tender and I don’t need to add any oils or fats. I cut up onion, carrots and garlic to add to the pot as well as salt and pepper. This adds wonderful flavor to the chicken. Another bonus is that the leftover liquid becomes savory chicken stock to use during the week.

Ole’ Extreme Wellness Tortillas have the absolute lowest points value out of any other tortillas that I have looked at.  The best part is that they taste good – not chewy or doughy.

The Laughing Cow Light Buffalo Cheese is the key to the authentic taste.  This cheese is typically on an end cap at my Publix grocery store,  not refrigerated. It’s very creamy with a touch of tanginess and spreads like butter.
