Brown Butter Chicken Wraps

The weeks that fall between Thanksgiving and Christmas are some of the busiest weeks of the year which means quick and easy dinners that everyone in our family likes is what’s for dinner. Case in point, my new go-to weeknight warrior, Gluten Free Brown Butter Chicken Wraps! These bad boys are so simple to make that even my 8-year old can whip them up and they are made with the best gluten free wrap to come across our table since we we went gluten free over 8 years ago.

There is a table set with brown butter chicken wraps on plates, platters of multi-colored sandwich wraps and fillings like arugula, hummus, chicken tenders, and red pepper spread. There is a woman holding a bag of Toufayan green spinach wraps in the frame as well.

It’s sad, but true, up until recently we had actually given up hope of ever enjoying another wrap….

You see, gluten free wraps have earned a horrible reputation in our house over the years. Typically, they have a questionable flavor from the start and they almost always begin to split at the seams before they can even be lifted to our mouths from our plates for the first bite. I don’t care what anyone says, when you wind up having to eat your lack luster wrap with a fork, it’s FRUSTRATING!
I’m not going to lie, I was SUPER skeptical when I learned about Toufayan’s gluten free wraps, but all of my hesitations and concerns went right out the window as soon as I laid eyes( and tastebuds!) on them! I’ve successfully and happilytaste tested all 4 flavors starting with spinach, then tomato, followed by original and smart grain for good measure. They all have a wonderful flavor on their own that really compliments every wrap filling I’ve paired them with. Plus, they are super pliable, both straight out of the bag and warmed which means no more meal time frustration from our wraps busting at the seams as soon as we lift them from the plate!
A table set with the fixings to make brown butter chicken wraps - there are bowls of arugula, hummus, and platters of chicken tenders. There are a variety of colored wraps. There is a wrap that has been built, waiting to be wrapped up.

There is a ton of flavor in every layer of these Brown Butter Chicken Wraps, let’s talk about them!

Double the spreads || I am ALL about the spreads! Hummus and spicy pepper relish bring the flavor and the heat in these Brown Butter Chicken Wraps, but if you are like my kids and can’t take the fire just skip the pepper relish, the wraps are just as delicious without it!
Triple the veg || This wrap is loaded with fresh flavors! Starting with lightly dressed arugula, thinly sliced red onion, and tomato!
The main event || Full disclosure – I am a sucker for anything flavored with brown butter! The tender and succulent brown butter chicken tenderloins are front and center in these wraps and I just know you are going to love them. I have been making chicken tenders this way for my kids for years and they literally fight over them, which in this case is a good thing. The tenderloins are quick to cook, require basically zero prep ( or cooking skill ) and are always delicious no matter how you serve them up.
Cheese it up || IMO no wrap would be complete without cheese and the cheese that pairs perfectly with these Brown Butter Chicken Wraps is feta! We love how the briny flavor pairs perfectly with the earthy hummus and brown butter chicken. Your tastebuds are going to thank you for adding a hefty sprinkle, trust me!
A platter of multi-colored wraps is in the middle of a table with a bowl of arugula. There are bowls of hummus, red pepper spread, brown butter chicken tenders, and feta cheese. There are 2 plate son teh table with wraps that have been preassembled.

Have a vegetarian to feed too? Don’t worry, I have a serving suggestion for them too!

As great as the kid’s and I think these Brown Butter Chicken Wraps are, I should probably point out that our resident vegetarian, Daddio, loves these wraps too, but only when they are built with everything except the Brown Butter Chicken. He says that the duo of spreads paired with a double helping of all of the veggies and lots of feta is super satisfying even without the brown butter chicken tenders!

Description

While we loves these wraps as-is, the brown butter chicken tenders are a great back pocket recipe to keep on hand!


Scale

Ingredients

For the Brown Butter Chicken Tenders:

68 boneless, skinless chicken tenders, or 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts sliced into 8 pieces.

coarse kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 tablespoons butter, preferably salted

For the wraps:

4 Toufayan gluten free wraps in your favorite flavor; either tomato, spinach, smart grain, or original

4 tablespoons original hummus, divided

2 tablespoons spicy pepper relish, divided

1 1/2 cups fresh arugula tossed with 1 tablespoon Ranch or Caesar dressing

sliced onion and tomato

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese


Instructions

Make the Brown Butter Chicken Tenders:

Remove the chicken tenderloins from their packaging and transfer them to a small cookie sheet lined with paper towels. Turn the chicken tenders over on both sides so that the paper towels can absorb any excess moisture. Sprinkle the tenders on both sides liberally with coarse kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and allow the oil to come to temperature. Add as many tenders to the skillet as possible without over crowding, leaving at least a half inch in between each one. Cook for 3 minutes on each side, flipping once, until turning golden brown in spots and cooked through. Remove cooked tenderloins from the skillet to a plate and cover them with foil to keep them warm.

One all of the tenderloins are resting, reduce the heat to medium and add the butter to the skillet. Stir the melting butter around scarping up any brown bits from the chicken that have stuck onto the  bottom of the skillet. Very quickly the butter will change color to golden brown, add all of the chicken and any juices that collected on the plate while it was resting back to the skillet. Toss to coat all of the tenders in the brown butter sauce. Serve immediately.

To assemble the wraps:

Warm the Toufayan wraps if desired then divide the hummus, spicy pepper relish, veggies, and brown butter chicken tenders between them. Sprinkle each wrap with 1/4 of the feta cheese before closing the wraps. Serve immediately.
