These Buffalo chicken wraps are excellent. Honey and lime juice help tone down the hot wing sauce for a refreshing zing. They’re perfect for lunch or a light evening meal. For quicker preparation, use store-bought blue cheese dressing instead of homemade. –Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida


  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 small cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 celery rib, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup julienned carrots
  • 8 Bibb or Boston lettuce leaves


  1. For dressing, in a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil until no longer pink. Combine the lime juice, hot sauce and honey; pour over chicken. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in the cucumber, celery and carrots.
  3. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto each lettuce leaf; fold sides over filling and secure with a toothpick. Serve with blue cheese dressing.
