Why This Recipe is Worth Making

You can put these easy wraps together in about 30 minutes.

This is a family friendly recipe that people of all ages love.

We’ve included 5 recipe variations below, so you can match the flavors with your cravings!

Make these tasty sandwich wraps in advance for a truly easy meal. Just “wrap your wraps” to keep them from drying out, and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.

Ingredients and Substitutions

Flour tortillas, a head of romaine lettuce, 6 cooked bacon strips, 2 tomatoes, ranch mayonnaise, and 2 grilled chicken breasts.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to prepare this recipe, from top to bottom as shown in the photo above.

4 extra-large flour tortillas – Look for the big tortillas at the grocery store; the ones I used for this photo are 10 inches across. If you only have regular-sized tortillas, no problem. Just make smaller wraps using the same recipe and ingredients.

1 small head romaine lettuce – Romaine lettuce has great flavor, high nutritional value, and holds up well after being chopped. If you don’t have romaine, feel free to substitute the lettuce of your choice.

6 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and drained – Here’s how to cook bacon in the oven, which is my favorite cooking method for thick sliced bacon. Or you can pan fry it or even cook the bacon on the grill.

1 large or 2 medium tomatoes, chopped – When it’s not fresh tomato season, look for hothouse tomatoes with stems on and let them ripen on your kitchen counter for a few days. Chopped cherry tomatoes can also be substituted.

2 grilled small chicken breasts – If you’re in a hurry, you can often find grilled chicken breasts in the deli or prepared foods section of the store. Or you can grill your own chicken.

3 tablespoons ranch dressing – Use your favorite, and see instructions in the Variations section below if you prefer a more pronounced ranch flavor.

2 tablespoons mayonnaise – my favorite brand is Duke’s mayonnaise, but feel free to use your favorite real mayo.

Equipment Needed

  • Large skillet
  • Knife or spatula for spreading
  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife
  • Salad spinner

How to Make Bacon Chicken Wraps – Step by Step Instructions

Chop the tomatoes, drain on paper towels if needed, and remove the seeds if needed.

I recommend that you cook bacon in the oven for this recipe, because the clean up is easy and your bacon will come out perfectly browned and crispy.

Chop the grilled chicken breasts and lettuce, and combine the ranch dressing with the mayonnaise in a small bowl.

Warm each tortilla in a large skillet over medium heat for about 30 seconds per side. This will help soften the tortillas and make them easier to roll.

Spread the tortillas with a heaping tablespoon of the ranch mayo. Then sprinkle with the toppings, leaving about 1.5 inches at the top unfilled for easier rolling.

Pro Recipe Tips

Warm the tortillas in a skillet first for easier rolling.

The sandwiches will hold together better if you refrigerate them for at least 2 hours before slicing.

If you’re preparing the recipe in advance to eat later, be sure to drain the chopped tomatoes on paper towels before adding them to the sandwich, to prevent the wraps from getting soggy.

Recipe Variations

Here are five ways to modify this chicken bacon wraps recipe and make it your own:

Make Chicken Bacon Wraps with Cream Cheese by substituting softened cream cheese for the ranch mayonnaise. You can add a few drops of milk, if needed, for easier spreading.

For Sweet and Spicy Chicken Bacon Wraps, drizzle the grilled chicken with a little sweet-spicy barbecue sauce before chopping.

For a Crispy Chicken Bacon Ranch Wrap, use fried boneless chicken breast or tenders instead of the grilled chicken. Chop and proceed with recipe.

For a more pronounced ranch flavor in the dressing, you can combine 5 tablespoons mayonnaise with 1/2 teaspoon of ranch dip mix and use that for spreading.

If you’re a fan of fresh basil, you can substitute the Basil Mayonnaise we made in these Mini BLT Sliders for the ranch mayo.
