Ingredients

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast: you can easily swap the chicken breast for boneless skinless chicken thighs if you’d like.

Seasonings: you’ll need salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper for the chicken in this recipe. 

Olive Oil: choose a great-tasting olive oil that you love.  

Greens: I like to use a combination of Tuscan or Lacinato kale and romaine lettuce, but you could choose one or the other. 

Roasted Red Peppers: these add a slightly smokey flavor that I know you’ll love! 

Grilled Artichoke Hearts: if you’ve never tried grilled artichoke hearts before, then you must! They’re full of flavor and work really well in this recipe. 

Red Onion: for a bit of crunch and a onion flavor. Slice them thinly so you don’t end up with a huge bite of red onion.

Avocado: we’re adding some creamy diced avocado for some healthy fats. 

Caesar Dressing: my homemade Caesar dressing is my go-to dressing for this recipe. It’s creamy, easy to make, and so flavorful! I also love to use my tahini caesar dressing if I want to switch things up a bit. If you want to save time, you can always go with your favorite store-bought version instead. 

Parmesan Cheese: we’re adding a bit of freshly grated parmesan for a salty, cheesy flavor. 

Tortillas: you’ll need four burrito-size tortillas for these wraps.

Ingredient Variations

  • Chicken Breast – feel free to use chicken thighs instead of breasts if that’s your thing. Or, swap it out for salmon, turkey, or shrimp instead. 
  • Veggies – have extra veggies on hand? Toss them in! Anything goes with this chicken Caesar wrap recipe. 
  • Dressing – not a fan of Caesar dressing? Use any other flavor you like best! Greek salad dressing, dairy free Ranch, or lemon herb tahini dressing would all taste great. 
  • Cheese – feel free to swap the parmesan cheese out for another variety if you prefer. Mozzarella or even feta would both work well.
  • Tortillas – need this recipe to be gluten-free? Swap out the tortillas for your favorite gluten-free tortillas instead. You could also swap the white flour tortillas for whole wheat if you prefer.

How to Make This Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap

Step One: Season the chicken breast on both sides. Then, heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the olive oil followed by the chicken breast. Cook for 5 minutes on each side until the chicken is golden brown and the internal temperature is 165 degrees. Let the chicken rest and cool for 10 minutes before dicing. 

Step Two: Add the diced chicken breast and remaining wrap ingredients, except the tortillas to a large mixing bowl. Toss until well combined and coated in the dressing. 

Step Three: Warm the tortillas on a griddle, skillet, or open gas flame. Or, heat them in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds. Next, divide the salad mixture evenly between all four tortillas. Fold the sides of each tortilla toward the center, and roll them up tightly like a burrito. Then, slice diagonally, and serve!

Meal Prep Tips

  • Prep the chicken – prep and season the chicken up to two days in advance to save some time. You can also prep and season a big batch of chicken breasts in advance, and freeze until you’re ready to cook. 
  • Make the dressing – combine all the ingredients for the homemade Caesar dressing, and keep it stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 to 7 days. 
  • Prep the veggies – you can slice and prep your veggies and any other filling ingredients so that they’re ready to use when you make your wraps. Just keep them stored in separate airtight containers in the fridge.
