Chicken Caesar Wrap

As ordinary as they are, a good Caesar salad is one of my favorites. And I’ll admit, I grab a packaged Caesar salad often to go on the side of a more-time intensive meal. I rarely have the time to make both from scratch on a weeknight and especially with the craziness of back-to-school time!

So today we’re using a salad mix, adding some tomatoes for a touch of sweetness, chicken for some staying power, and wrapping it all up in a tortilla for one heck of a simple and tasty dinner!

Chicken Caesar Wrap Ingredients

  • Flour tortillas. We love these unbaked tortillas by TortillaLand® (not sponsored). They are generally found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store near the cheeses, and are the best flavor-wise. They have a great texture and ensure these wraps taste light and fresh. We definitely prefer unbaked tortillas that can be warmed up on the stovetop — they fold up better and taste fresher. If you only have prepared tortillas, warm them under a damp paper towel for 10 seconds in the microwave before using them.
  • Rotisserie chicken. We load up these wraps with shredded rotisserie chicken; leftover grilled chicken is also a great option. Pre-cooked and seasoned chicken is a total time saver on its own, but to save even more time on the chicken, you can purchase rotisserie chicken meat already pulled from the bones and shredded or diced — a lot of grocery stores sell this conveniently prepared chicken!
  • Cherry tomatoes. The tomatoes add a nice burst of sweetness and freshness to the wraps. Alternatively, thinly slice a Roma tomato or two and layer on the wrap before adding the salad.
  • Caesar salad kit. The big secret for having these Chicken Caesar Wraps ready so quickly is a Caesar salad kit. These kits are conveniently found in the produce section of the grocery store among all the different bags and varieties of lettuce. The kit has it all – romaine lettuce, croutons, seasoning packet, salad dressing, and Parmesan cheese. Open everything and toss it together — so easy!

VARIATIONS

Chicken Caesar Wrap Variations

  • Add some heat by sprinkling red pepper flakes on top.
  • For a lower-calorie Chicken Caesar Wrap, use a lite Caesar salad dressing instead of using the dressing in the package.
  • Don’t like store-bought dressings? While it will add to the overall prep time and ingredients required, you can always make your own dressing. (Our favorite Caesar salad dressing is on these Caesar Salad Pizzas.)
  • Add a hint of lemon-pepper flavor by using a lemon pepper-seasoned chicken in the wraps.

Process shots--divide the salad mixture among the tortillas; roll up tightly and serve.
