Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps
I am always trying to find new lunch combinations that are easy to make and healthy. Recently, me and the hubby went to a local sandwich place that had chicken caesar salad wraps. Chicken caesar salad is my favorite of them all, so I ordered it and loved it. The best wrap that I have had, and I couldn’t wait to make it at home! Especially since the weather is getting warmer, and I find myself wanting more salads and lighter foods. This wrap is definitely going to be a staple in my weekly menus this summer.
Not only is this a healthy and tasty wrap, but it is also just fun to make! In fact, my kids want me to turn everything into a wrap now so that they can help make it! They love to help with the tossing and wrapping. I love that they are getting a healthy meal that they enjoy eating and I’m not having to force them to eat! I promise you this recipe is so simple and easy to follow and it will turn out looking so impressive. Each bite is bursting with flavor while still keeping a fresh and light overall feel. Be sure to try it for lunch or dinner soon!
Chicken Caesar Salad Ingredients:
Just a few simple ingredients come together so quickly and easily in this crowd pleasing wrap. In fact, many of the ingredients can even be bought pre-made, which is so nice! I love chicken caesar salads, I always have. But, when you add in a tortilla to wrap it up, now that is just so much better!!
- Caesar Salad Dressing: I use the light version to keep it a little healthier.
- Parmesan cheese: Freshly grated
- Garlic powder: Adds a little bit of subtle flavor.
- Pepper: To taste
- Lemon juice: The bright citrus flavor adds freshness.
- Chicken breast: Cubed and cooked, Tyson grilled and ready worked great!
- Romaine lettuce: I used the premium with shredded carrots.
- Salad croutons: Chopped so that they are easier to eat.
- Whole grain wraps or tortillas: Use an extra large one so that it is easier to wrap.
How to Make a Wrap:
Two simple steps are all it takes to have a delicious meal ready to go. Just grab your ingredients, toss them together and wrap it up in your favorite tortilla. In just minutes you can have a restaurant quality meal in your own kitchen.
- Toss Ingredients: In a medium bowl, combine caesar dressing, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, pepper, and lemon juice. Add the romaine lettuce, cubed chicken and salad croutons. Toss until coated well.
- Fill tortilla and roll: Place about 2/3 of the chicken mixture into each wrap and roll up.

To make sure this wrap is healthy, just make careful choices when choosing your ingredients. Use a low-fat dressing and read labels carefully to ensure you find one without a lot of added sugars. Also, there are so many great low carb or low fat wrap options available now, so be sure to choose one that suits your specific dietary needs.
Variations for Chicken Caesar Wraps:

- Pinwheels: A fun way to serve these chicken caesar wraps is to cut them into pinwheels! They would be great as an appetizer for entertaining.
- Toothpicks: Add toothpicks to help them stay together if you’re bringing them somewhere.
- Bacon: Adding crumbled bacon to the mixture of this wrap is so amazing!
- Serving: Serve your wrap with a side of fresh fruit, potato salad, pasta salad, chips, or chopped vegetables.
How Long Can You Store Chicken Caesar Wraps?
Once fully prepared, eat or refrigerate your chicken caesar wrap within two hours. If you are making these for later use like in weekly meal prepping, I suggest storing the ingredients separately then mixing together right before you eat it. Otherwise, the croutons and other ingredients may turn slightly soggy. If you want to make ahead for later use, just leave out the dressing in the mixture and dip the wrap in dressing as you eat it later instead. To store, cover the caesar salad wrap tightly with plastic wrap or foil. Stored this way, they will last in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
