Vegan Buffalo Chicken – Easy Vegan Buffalo Wrap or Sandwich

This vegan buffalo chicken will amaze you! It is gluten free and vegan but bursting with flavor! It’s a “meaty” protein packed meal that will satisfy even the biggest of appetites!
Use this vegan buffalo chicken to make filling tortilla wraps, sandwiches, or lettuce wraps. Whatever you use it for, it will be delicious paired with homemade ranch dressing!

What do you use for “chicken” to make vegan buffalo chicken?

You start with a chicken-like vegan protein like any chicken strip that you can buy at most major stores or you can use Butler Soy Curls rehydrated in vegan chicken flavored broth. Soy curls are also gluten free and are relatively inexpensive, so they are my preferred choice.

How do I make vegan buffalo chicken salad?

Once the soy curls have been rehydrated in the broth, fry them in a small amount of oil in a skillet. This cooks them and dries them out again, so they soak up more flavor from the buffalo sauce.

Once the soy curls are heated through and any excess broth has evaporated, mix up some vegan buffalo sauce and pour it over the soy curls and mix well.

Then add ½ cup of chopped celery to the soy curls. This give it a fresh crunch, so it doesn’t become too rich and heavy tasting.

How do I serve this vegan buffalo chicken?

Serve warm or refrigerate until you are ready to use as a wrap or sandwich filling. (My oldest son just likes to eat it by the bowlful too).
It makes an incredible sandwich served on a roll and drizzled with vegan ranch!  If you need it to be gluten free, these Schar brand hamburger buns work great!

If you are looking for something a little lighter, this vegan buffalo chicken makes a delicious lettuce wrap!

Recipe Notes
  • Serve this either warm or cold. 
  • To make this soy free as well, use the vegan chicken strips from beyond meat instead of the soy curls and omit the broth and rehydrating process. 
  • To make gluten free sandwiches, I use Schar brand hamburger buns.
  • Nutrition facts calculated for lettuce wraps.  See nutrition facts on bread of choice and add if making into sandwiches.

  • Just looking at these pictures made my mouth water.
    I had to try it. I couldn’t be easier and it tastes amazing!
    My husband and kids can’t get enough of it.
    I need to go now so I can make it again before the kids get home from school.
    Perfect after school snack if your kids can handle a bit of heat.
    Thanks for posting!

    • My family goes crazy for these sandwiches too! I may like the lettuce wraps even more than the sandwich. Definitely try both! So happy to hear that you liked it!
