Chicken Cream Cheese Pinwheels(Top Pick!)

One of my personal favourites, it’s different from your everyday cream cheese wrap and packs a punch of flavour! Don’t believe me? Try it out and tell me you don’t fall in love with them like I did!

We make these all the time for parties and special occasions. Everyone always enjoys them! So here it is..a healthier version of them! This recipe originally came from a janet and greta cookbook but I modified it a bit to make it even tastier and healthier!

For One:


– 1 6-inch Whole wheat wrap

-1/4 cup shredded chicken

-1 tbsp grated low-fat cheddar cheese

-1 tsp green onion(or more to taste)

-2 large tbsp minced red pepper (you can sub green but red really makes the recipe!)

-2 tbsp fat-free or low-fat cream cheese

-1/2 tbsp low-fat sourcream

-1/2 tsp red pepper jelly(This is what gives the wraps their unique flavour! A little goes a long way so add what you like if you find this is to little)


  1. In medium bowl, combine chicken, cheddar cheese, green onions, and red pepper. Set aside.
  2. In another medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, sour cream, and red-pepper jelly with electric mixer at low speed (or fork)
  3. On one of the tortillas, spread 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture on one side of the tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/3 chicken mixture, leaving a 1/2 inch border of just cream cheese around the edge
  4. Roll tortilla up tightly, jelly-roll style, and seal the ends. Wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat process with remaining tortillas
  5. Refrigerate wrapped tortillas for at least 2 hrs. Remove the plastic wrap, cut in half or into small pinwheels. Serve cold.Nutrition Facts for one 6-inch wrap: 4g sugar, 20 carbs, 4.5g fat(you can use fat-free wraps for even less fat), 24g protein*For a party*:
