After all, it's just Caesar salad wrapped in a soft flour tortilla. For this recipe, I’ve added cooked chicken to create a more filling meal.

Many Ways to Cook the Chicken

The recipe calls for cooked chicken. Use rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, or cook your own chicken using one of the following methods:

Tips For Making a Homemade Chicken Caesar Wrap

  • As with most simple recipes, the quality of the ingredients matters. I highly recommend making your own Caesar dressing and croutons, and use freshly grated the Parmesan cheese.
  • Toss the salad in a large bowl to ensure everything gets evenly coated in the dressing before you wrap them.
  • Use big tortillas—they're easier to wrap. Mine were about 10 inches wide. 
  • Don’t overfill the tortilla. This makes it hard to roll up.

Love a Salad? Wrap It!

The general idea is this: Take a salad you love and wrap it in a tortilla. This opens up a world of quick, easy, and delicious wraps. Here are some salads you could try wrapping: 

  • Kale Caesar wrap: A seasonal twist on the classic Caesar, with an anchovy-free dressing. Make sure the croutons are bite-sized. A smear of plain hummus or a boiled egg would be a great idea.
  • Chicken avocado wrap: A tangy buttermilk dressing, shredded chicken, and creamy avocado are the perfect candidates for tucking into a white or wheat flour tortilla. Break up the garlic toasts into bite-sized pieces with your hands before tossing the salad.
  • Green goddess wrap: Green goddess dressing is an herby, creamy dressing that could coat crunchy lettuces, cucumbers, leftover roasted veggies, and a cooked grain, like chewy farro. Here’s another grain bowl that would be delicious wrapped. 
  • Chicken tahini wrap: This super easy, sesame-studded salad with chicken and radish is great if you have a taste for tahini.

How to Store Chicken Caesar Wraps

Wraps, as with most sandwiches, are best eaten fresh, but if you want to prepare them ahead, you can assemble and refrigerate them for up to 2 days tightly wrapped in plastic, parchment, or wax paper. 

Simple Tip!

To avoid a soggy wrap, go light with the dressing. Then, serve some on the side for dipping.

  2. Wrap the salad:

    Place a tortilla flat on a cutting board or clean work surface. Add a quarter of the salad in the center of the tortilla. Fold the left and right edges in towards the center, then tuck the side closest to you up and roll it tightly. Secure it with a toothpick, if you’d like. You could also keep the wrap seam side-down so that it doesn’t unroll. Assemble the remaining 3 wraps just like this.
