Inspired by Hawaiian pizza these chicken wraps have bacon, fresh pineapple, and mozzarella cheese. Use your favorite store-bought BBQ sauce and the wraps are ready to go in about 30 minutes.


  • 2 slices of bacon, cut into 1/4” pieces
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup diced pineapple (1/8” pieces)
  • 3/4 cup store-bought BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 (10-inch) flour tortillas


  1. In a large pan, cook the bacon over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until it starts to release its fat. Add the onion and chicken and cook them together with the bacon until the chicken is no longer pink about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the pineapple, BBQ sauce, and salt to the pan. Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook it all for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low to keep the filling warm while you make the wraps.
  3. To make the wrap, first warm the tortillas in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds. Place about 1 cup of the filling just off-center on a tortilla. Top the filling the 1/4 cup of the cheese. Fold the tortilla over the filling, folding the ends into the burrito as you roll it. Repeat with the other tortillas.


I placed the wraps on a hot grill pan to get the marks on the outside. You can also use a skillet to toast them on the outside or just serve them as is. It all works. Make the filling ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator so you can make wraps for lunch or dinner during the week. Just warm the filling on the stove or in the microwave.
