Easy And Healthy Chicken Caesar Wraps

Not sure what to cook for dinner? Try this quick and easy (yet delicious) recipe

I'm all about easy, last-minute suppers. Don't get me wrong, I have the best of intentions to meal plan every week and absolutely think that meal planning is the best way to stay organized when it comes to family meals, not to mention save time and money. But as a Mom, I also know that on-the-fly dinner ideas can come in very handy on busy days. In the Spring and Summer, we often make a big salad, throw some sort of BBQd meat, poultry or fish on top and call it dinner (BBQd chicken caesar salad being one of our go-tos), but I decided to switch it up one night and wrap it up. Literally. The boys loved it and it was quick and easy for me to throw together. I'm talking 15-20 minutes tops. 



  • One whole grain or whole wheat wrap or tortilla shell per person (3-4 total)
  • 1/3 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Bacon pieces (optional)
  • Croutons (optional)
  • 2 chicken breasts BBQd and sliced
  • Large head of romaine lettuce (enough for 3-4 people)


  • 3-4 tablespoons reduced fat mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dry Dijon mustard powder
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons anchovy paste or anchovy filets
  • 1/2-1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed


Crush anchovies, garlic, mustard powder and sea salt together with a spoon in a large wooden salad bowl

Add olive oil, Worcestershire, lemon juice, mayo and continue to stir and crush until nice and creamy

Add fresh romaine lettuce, BBQd sliced chicken breasts, croutons, freshly ground pepper, parmesan cheese and bacon pieces if desired. 

Warm wraps up in oven or microwave, place desired amount of chicken caesar salad onto wraps, wrap them up and serve! Tip: If you prefer a creamier wrap, make a little extra dressing and pour on top before wrapping it up. 

Pair these wraps with cut up veggies like carrots, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes and you've got yourself a healthy, quick and easy dinner! My 2-year-old wasn't too sure what to think of the lettuce, but had a great time taking the wrap apart and eating most of the good stuff!
