Chicken Caesar Wraps

Chicken Caesar Wraps, Best Chicken Caesar WrapsVery easy recipe that is great for lunch or a light dinner. Serve with fresh fruit and you have a complete meal. What I like about this meal is that if someone is watching their carbs, they can simply omit the tortilla and make a salad out of the prepared ingredients or a side salad and sliced chicken.


  • 2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts, about 1 lb
  • 4 cups of Romaine lettuce, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese (freshly grated if possible)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground

  • 4 - 8'" soft flour or wheat tortillas
  • 1/2 cup Caesar salad dressing, (creamy or traditional)


  1. Lightly pound chicken breasts until they are even in thickness between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or in a large storage bag. You just want to make the chicken breasts even in thickness so they will cook evenly and to avoid overcooking.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic cloves, Italian seasoning, oregano, salt and pepper.
  3. Rub the seasoned garlic on both sides of the chicken breast and allow to rest at room temperature for 5 minutes or so.
  4. While the chicken is resting, heat a sauté pan on medium heat until good and hot. Add the olive oil to the pan and heat.
  5. Add chicken to the sauté pan and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink. Remove pan from heat and allow the chicken to cool in the pan.
  6. While chicken is cooling, in a large bowl combine the chopped lettuce and parmesan cheese. Add 1/4 cup of the Caesar dressing and combine with the lettuce. Add more or less of the dressing as desired.
  7. Remove chicken from the pan and slice into thin strips. 
  8. Place 1/4 of the sliced chicken and 1/4 of the salad mixture on one end of the tortilla, fold in sides and carefully roll up. Place tortilla seam side down and cut in half on a diagonal. Serve with remaining salad dressing on the side.


- You can also grill the chicken or use a grill pan if you desire. If grilling, use only 1 tbs of the olive oil and add it to the seasoned garlic and then rub on chicken. Allow to marinate for 10 - 15 minutes before grilling.


-  I like to buy the prewashed and bagged Romaine lettuce if I want to make the meal in a hurry.

- Using precooked chicken such as a rotiserrie chicken will save on time.


- Add any of the following:

  • Crumbled croutons
  • Olives such as kalamata, black, or green olives
  • Red onions
  • Tomatoes

- Use Italian or Ranch salad dressing instead of Caesar.
