Chicken Ranch Snack Wraps are an easy McDonald’s copycat recipe that is perfect for a snack or a light lunch. These quick and easy snacks use frozen chicken strips for convenience and are easily customizable.
You can’t beat a quick lunch or snack when you’re starving but you want something lighter to eat.
These wraps are perfect to take with you on the go.
They are great hot or cold.
If you serve them cold, just keep in mind that the frozen chicken tenders will need to be fully cooked through before you make the wraps.
After the wraps are fully made, you can store them in the refrigerator until you are ready to enjoy them.

Key to Success #1 – Heat Up the Chicken Your Way
We love to use our air fryer to heat up chicken tenders or other convenience items in the frozen foods section.
The air fryer is much quicker compared to a traditional oven and it doesn’t heat up your entire kitchen when you’re just trying to make yourself a snack.
I like to use the Tyson Southern Chicken Tenderloin strips in this recipe because they get nice and crispy in the air fryer.
You can substitute any kind of chicken strip that you like. You can even use leftover chicken.
If you don’t have an air fryer, you can heat the chicken in the microwave.
The microwave will result in a less crispy chicken strip, but it will save you quite a bit of time if you are in a hurry.
Key to Success #2 – Use Soft Taco Sized Tortillas
For snack-sized wraps, we’re using soft taco-sized tortillas.
The taco-sized tortillas are perfect for wrapping up one chicken tender.
You could easily super-size this snack by using a burrito-sized tortilla and 2-3 chicken tenders, depending on how large they are.
Heat the tortillas in the microwave for 15-20 seconds so that they are soft before you make your wraps.
Warm tortillas are more pliable and this will make it easier for you to roll up your wraps.
Do not overheat the tortillas or they may get tough and chewy instead of soft.
Key to Success #3 – Don’t Overstuff the Tortillas
Since our chicken wraps are snack-sized, we’re using slightly smaller tortillas in this recipe.
The soft taco-sized tortillas are the perfect size to wrap around a single chicken tenderloin, but you have to make sure you’re not overstuffing it.
Be sure to keep the size of your tortilla in mind when adding your cheese and lettuce or any other toppings that you like.
If your tortilla is difficult to wrap around the chicken, you can just roll up the tortilla instead of wrapping it completely around the chicken.
Either way, this chicken ranch wrap is the perfect snack or light lunch.
