What does Sriracha taste like?

If you’re not familiar with sriracha, it’s a hot sauce that is similar to chili sauce. It’s made from a mixture of chili peppers, white vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt.

You can make your own sauce if you prefer. Or, start with your favorite brand from the grocery store.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to grill the meat?

I started with grilled tenderloins when I made these wraps. But, if you don’t feel like grilling, any cooked poultry will work just as well with this recipe.

You can pick up a rotisserie chicken from the store. Or, you can use leftover meat from last night’s dinner. 

Or, if you want a crispy sandwich, you can use coated tenders in place of the grilled tenderloins. It’s not quite as healthy as the original recipe. But, it’s just as delicious.

What can I add to my wrap?

I’ve added cilantro and mozzarella cheese to my wrap, but you can add your favorite fresh vegetables as well. You may want to try lettuce, chopped tomatoes, avocado, and red onion.

If you want this sandwich to be a little bit spicier, you can add more Sriracha sauce. Or, if you prefer it milder, you can use less and add a bit of honey to the sauce to cut the heat.

I like to toss my sriracha wraps on the grill for a few minutes before I serve them. It helps melt the cheese. And, I love the way it gives the tortilla a little crunch.

But, you can serve this just as easily cold if you’d prefer. Or, you can put it in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it up.

Can I make this ahead of time?

If you want to make the chicken ahead of time you can grill it and then put it in the refrigerator until you need it. Cooked chicken will stay good for 3 to 5 days in a tightly covered container.

You can also make the sriracha ranch dressing the day before. Then, when it’s time to make dinner, all you’ll need to do is to put the ingredients together and serve.

Cilantro is an acquired taste, and not everyone enjoys it. You can certainly leave it out of the recipe if you want to.

Or, you can substitute fresh parsley or baby spinach leaves instead if you prefer.

Sriracha chicken wraps with lettuce

If you want to cut the carbs on this recipe, you can skip the tortilla and instead use lettuce leaves. The best type of lettuce to use in place of a wrap is Boston Bibb Lettuce.

If you add fresh vegetables to your wrap, this is a complete meal on its own. However, if you want to serve a side dish along with it, here are a few ideas.

  • Side garden salad
  • Potato chips
  • French fries
  • Sliced peppers and carrots
  • Fruit salad

How can I store leftovers?

If you have leftovers when you make these Sriracha Chicken Wraps, you can store them wrapped in tin foil for up to three days. Just heat them slightly in the microwave before you want to serve them.

You cannot freeze the pre-made filling in this recipe. Mayonnaise does not freeze well and it will separate in the freezer and ruin the sandwich.
