Grilled Sticky Chicken Wraps

These are delicious. I use an indoor grill to make them, but you could definitely do this on an outdoor grill if you wanted to! You may just want to cut the chicken into bigger chunks so that you don't lose any through the cracks of the grill.

What I do is slice up a couple chicken breasts and grill them on both sides for a couple of minutes.

Then I toss the almost-fully-cooked pieces in sticky finger sauce.

Then I put them back on the grill and cook them on both sides again, and I brush each side with more sauce. I like to let the sauce get all caramelized and thick and STICKY, since these are sticky finger wraps.

YUM. Stack sliced tomatoes, lettuce, shredded colby jack cheese, ranch dressing, more sticky finger sauce, and crispy chow mein noodles on a tortilla.

Sticky Chicken Wraps

Recipe Source: © The Taste Tester, Sticky Finger Sauce recipe adapted from Favorite Family Recipes

Sticky Finger Sauce:

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/3 cup Frank's hot sauce
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons butter

Wrap Assembly:

2 chicken breasts, sliced
sliced tomatoes
shredded lettuce
shredded colby jack cheese
ranch dressing
crunchy chow mein noodles

To make sauce: Combine brown sugar, hot sauce, and water in small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for two minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter. Let cool to room temperature. Store any leftovers in the fridge--- it will get really thick and sticky in the fridge so sit it on the counter a couple of hours before grilling the chicken if it's been refrigerated beforehand.

To grill chicken: Cook chicken strips on grill for a couple of minutes on each side, or until you get some nice looking grill marks. Remove from grill into a small bowl and toss with about half of the prepared sauce. 

Put strips back on grill and cook for 2-3 additional minutes on each side, brushing with more sauce. When they are done the sauce will be sticky and caramelized (but not burnt) and the chicken will be cooked through.

To assemble wraps: Stack sliced tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, dressing, more sticky finger sauce, chow mein noodles and chicken on a tortilla. Roll up and serve.
