To make a healthy, tasty buffalo chicken wrap, marinade the chicken in picante sauce before grilling and add a small but flavorful amount of blue cheese crumbles. Asian chicken wraps are quick and easy, only requiring canned chicken, crunchy veggies and reduced-fat, Asian-style sesame salad dressing. Wrap these as lettuce wraps to cut carbohydrates and drop extra calories.

Make a healthy version of a chicken ranch or Caesar wrap by drizzling the wrap with low-fat or fat-free dressing. Another option is to mix ranch or Caesar dressing flavor packets with fat-free Greek yogurt, which is also high in protein. Chicken ranch wraps traditionally are made with bacon, but for a healthier option swap in turkey bacon or make them without bacon.

When you want healthy yet crispy chicken for pesto chicken club wraps or chicken and hummus, choose pre-breaded chicken and rather than frying, bake the chicken in the oven.
