Chicken Pinwheels are a delicious appetizer for your next party or a simple snack any day of the week. Made with chicken, spreadable cheese, and veggies they are quick and easy. Gluten-free.
These chicken, cheese, & veggie pinwheel recipes are so versatile you can quickly whip them up for entertainment purposes, or as an after-school snack.
How To Make
Start by picking out what kind of tortillas you want to use.
Next, choose your cheese flavor. You do need to check the labels on spreadable cheese to make sure it’s gluten-free. We like Boursin the best, but you could also spread the tortillas with goat cheese or cream cheese as well.
Next, add the meat and veggies. I chose rotisserie chicken because it looks nice in the pinwheel recipe and I always have some frozen on hand. You could also use lunch meat, tuna, or even tofu.
You can add variety by making some pinwheels simply with veggies.
If you’re using meat, spread it evenly around the tortilla. Then add your veggies of choice in a line on one side of the tortilla. This is how you get the veggies in the center of the pinwheel recipe.
Now it’s time to start rolling. Carefully start to fold the tortilla around the veggies, and roll tightly.
All you need to do is slice and serve!
