Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps for #LunchInspiration

Liz with the #FestiveFoodies invited us to share some tasty lunch ideas - sometimes it's easy to get stuck in a rut, or just default to convenience food for that mid-day meal!

I cooked up about a pound of chicken in the Crock Pot the morning I wanted to make these yummy sandwiches - just throw however much boneless skinless chicken breasts (or thighs) in your crock pot with enough chicken broth (or water, but I prefer broth) to cover the bottom of the pot. Set to high heat, and about 3-4 hours later you should have easily shreddable chicken which works beautifully in recipes like this one!

Same for the croutons - I don't keep them stocked, so I pulled a couple homemade rolls out of the freezer to thaw. Once thawed, slice into cubes, arrange on a baking sheet, toss with some olive or vegetable oil and a sprinkling of salt, pepper, and garlic powder and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 15-18 minutes total, tossing them half way through cooking and keeping an eye on them towards the end. Golden brown and crisp is perfection!

Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps
Makes 1 wrap

1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
1 slice thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup cooked, shredded chicken
1-2 Tablespoons Caesar dressing
1 Tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup croutons
1 large flour tortilla

  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine your filling ingredients: lettuce, bacon, shredded chicken, dressing, Parmesan cheese and the croutons. Toss gently to combine and evenly coat in the dressing. Adjust the dressing to your personal preference (for me - 1 to 1 1/2 TBS is about right)!
  2. Warm tortilla in the microwave for about 15 seconds to make it more pliable.
  3. Lay filling ingredients down the center, and roll your wrap up! Enjoy!
