This chicken Caesar salad wrap is a delicious sandwich wrap combining chicken lunch meat with a fresh Caesar salad! Perfect make ahead meal for lunch boxes or an easy dinner.
This post originally appeared here more than five years ago! I’ve updated the photos and the post just a bit to share it with you again. It’s such a simple lunchbox idea that I hope you like it as much as we do!
This is the third and final week for The Mom 100 Cookbook series for Sunday Supper. I have gotten a ton of great new ideas and I hope you have too. In June, I made the Turkey Meat Sauce Lasagna from Katie Workman’s cookbook. It has become a new favorite for our family! And last month I featured my twist on quesadillas with the Pizza Quesadillas. These are fast becoming a staple in our house it seems.
This week we’re talking about back-to-school recipes! Why does it seem that the summer always flies by? I can’t believe my own kids have only a couple of more weeks left until school starts. And every year seems to be a little bit different, with a new routine to get used to.
I know I sure can use all the help I can get, with new recipe ideas that are quick, easy and most importantly, delicious! This week, I did a variation on the wraps section of Workman’s book. We love Caesar salads topped with chicken so when I discovered a similar chicken Caesar salad wrap at our local grocery store I had to try it! It was delicious and I thought to myself, this would be so easy to make for lunch for our own lunchboxes.
My daughter especially loves this chicken Caesar salad wrap! The store-bought variety has a bit more lunch meat than we like, so that’s what is great about making our own…we can totally customize it. And that’s the tip that Workman gives…customize a wrap to make it your own!
The chicken Caesar salad wrap is pretty simple to put together and best of all, you can make them the night before!
Store in the refrigerator to put into a lunch tote before heading to school or work.
I also grate my own Parmesan cheese for these easy chicken wraps–you can find out how by checking out my post here. Yum!
Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap Recipe #SundaySupper
- 1 medium size whole wheat tortilla
- 3 slices of chicken lunchmeat (we like the Boar's Head rotisserie chicken)
- 1 large leaf of green lettuce, washed
- 1-2 tablespoon grated or shredded parmesan cheese
- 1-2 tablespoons prepared Caesar salad (commercially prepared or make your own)
- Spread dressing on entire tortilla. Sprinkle with paremesan cheese. Layer lettuce on tortilla and top with chicken slices on two-thirds of tortilla. Roll up one side then roll all ingredients up and secure with a toothpick if necessary. Enjoy!
