Ingredients In Chick Fil A Grilled Chicken Cool Wraps
Here’s what you need to make this tasty fast food copycat:
- Chicken – To make six sandwich wraps you’ll need three large boneless and skinless chicken breasts, each cut in half to make six thin cutlets. Slicing them this way makes the chicken cook up much more quickly on the grill.
- Olive Oil, Salt, and Pepper – Coat the chicken in this before grilling to season it and keep it from sticking to the grill grates.
- Flaxseed flour flatbread wraps – To replicate the Chick Fil A Cool Wrap, look for wraps specifically made with flaxseed. Many low-carb tortillas include this ingredient. Otherwise, any type of tortilla style wrap can be used. You might also like to make your own 2-ingredient homemade flatbreads!
- Cheese – Use half and half Monteray Jack and Cheddar cheeses. You’ll get the best flavor from cheese that you buy in blocks and shred yourself, but bagged shredded cheese is a nice shortcut too.
- Lettuce – Shredded lettuce adds crunch and texture to our wraps. I’m using crunchy romaine, but leaf lettuce or iceberg will also be just fine.

How To Make Grilled Chicken Chick Fil A Cool Wrap
- Grill Chicken: Start by coating the chicken cutlets with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and preheating the grill to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken for 2-3 minutes per side or until they are fully cooked and reach an internal temperature of 165°F/74°C. Remove from the grill and let rest for 5-10 minutes
- Slice Chicken: Wraps are easier to eat if the chicken is cut into smaller pieces. Slice the chicken cutlets against the grain after they’ve rested for a few minutes.
- Assemble your Cool Wraps: Warm the tortilla wraps so that they are pliable. Spread lettuce on each flat bread, followed by cheese, and then sliced chicken. Tightly wrap each wrap “burrito style”, and then cut in half to serve.
To warm tortillas quickly, place them on a plate an microwave for 10-15 seconds, just long enough to soften them.
- Grilled Chicken can be cooked on an outdoor grill (gas or charcoal) or indoors using a grill pan or electric grill.
- Add Extra Veggies such as sliced tomatoes, red bell pepper, onions, or other greens if you like.
- Avocado Lime Ranch is the Chick-fil-A dressing of choice for this homemade cool wrap. Keep reading for instructions to make it. You can also add regular ranch dressing, green goddess dressing, or a bit of mayo if you like.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days, although I recommend eating these wraps immediately after making them.
If you’d like to cook the chicken ahead of time, go right ahead, and store it in the fridge. Then slice it and add to wraps when you’re ready to eat.
What To Serve With Chick Fil A Wraps
I rarely have anything from Chick Fil A without some fries and plenty of Chick Fil A Sauce!

The trick to making wraps that are easy to pick up and eat is to wrap them very tightly inside of a large tortilla (10 inch ones are great). I always make sure that the filling is in the center of the tortilla. Fold over the sides at the short end of the filling, then bring up the bottom side and roll it up! Once you know how to wrap a wrap sandwich you can turn anything into a delicious and healthy wrap.
Sure! Although these wraps taste best when you make them with freshly grilled chicken, you can use leftover grilled chicken from dinner earlier in the week, or even frozen pre-cooked grilled chicken if you want to save time and make things really simple.

- Outdoor grill or grill pan
- 3 large chicken breasts sliced into a total of 6 thin cutlets
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 6 flaxseed flour flat breads or your favorite tortilla wraps, see note 1
- 1 ½ cups shredded monteray jack and cheddar cheese blend
- 12 romaine lettuce leaves shredded
- Avocado lime ranch dressing or other dressing, optional, for serving, see note 2
- Preheat the grill to medium high heat. Clean and oil the grill grates.
- In a bowl, combine the chicken cutlets with olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix so that the chicken is well coated.
- Place the chicken cutlets on the grill, and grill for 2-3 minutes per side or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 165°F/74°C. Remove from the grill, and keep warm. Do not slice the chicken right away, let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes and then slice it up.
- Warm up the flat bread or tortilla wraps so they’re pliable and easier to wrap (I do 10-15 seconds in the microwave). Spread lettuce on each flat bread, followed by cheese, and then sliced chicken.
- Wrap like you’d wrap a burrito: Fold the sides of the tortilla inward over the fillings. You want to tuck these in so nothing falls out. Then, fold the bottom of the tortilla up and over the fillings and the folded-in sides. Keep rolling the wrap away from you, making sure to tuck in the sides as you go. Finish by pressing down a bit on the seam, where the tortilla edges meet, so it stays closed. Slice in half, and serve with extra sauce on the side if desired.
