Firecracker Chicken Wraps
Serves: 12 wraps
  • Chicken
  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Firecracker Sauce
  • ⅓ cup hot sauce (like Frank's brand for hot wings, for instance)
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • Other Ingredients
  • Six (6 inch) flour tortillas
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 & ½ cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese
  • ½ cup ranch dressing
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the flour in a zip lock bag and drop the chicken pieces into it. Seal the bag and shake to coat.
  4. Heat 4 tablespoons of oil over medium and heat and cook the floured chicken for a few minutes on each side.
  5. Mix firecracker sauce ingredients together in a large bowl. Remove chicken from the skillet and drop into the bowl, mixing around to coat thoroughly.
  6. Place the chicken and sauce in a baking dish (size not important, just large enough to hold the chicken) and cook uncovered for about 50 minutes, removing from the oven to stir occasionally.
  7. Remove the chicken from the oven and use two forks to shred the chicken. Mix in the cheddar cheese.
  8. Sprinkle a little of the Mexican cheese on the bottom of each tortilla, and place a small spoonful of filling in the middle of each. Roll tightly and brush a little vegetable oil on the seam, then set seam-down on a plate. Repeat until chicken mixture is gone.

  9. Place the wraps in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds, this helps the seal to stick.
  10. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet and fry each tortilla until the bottom begins to turn light brown, then flip and repeat.
  11. Remove from skillet, slice each tortilla in half and serve with ranch dressing!
This chicken is also great served un-shredded on a bed of warm rice :)
