Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap

Originally posted Thursday, November 15, 2012

As I was searching the internet for a quick epic recipe for a chicken Caesar salad wrap I said to myself– uh Shari this is why you have a blog… so you can make these things up and you can post them-duh!
So here goes nothing!

First of all what you will need

*1 rotisserie chicken (I might add that I am obsessed with these pre-made ones from the market cause they are easy and delicious and I just take off the skin and chop them all up and take off all the fatty parts)


*1 jar of Caesar dressing (I used Litehouse- keep in mind you will not use the whole jar– well unless you want to but I recommend getting in a gigantic workout tomorrow if you do)
*2 tomatoes chopped up
*5 whole white mushrooms roughly chopped
*Half a head of lettuce (whatever kind you prefer)
*1 bushel of watercress (I used this cause it was available and I love it but you can use spinach or arugula if you prefer)
*1 package of garden spinach herb wraps (or you could use pitas too!)
*Some shredded Parmesan cheese (to sprinkle on the inside of your wrap as you please)
It is all really quite easy it is mostly about building the wrap except for-
I chopped up the chicken and added some seasoning to taste- salt and pepper (I actually ended up adding some dried chives about 2 tablespoons) and added in about 4 tablespoons of the dressing and mixed it all together in a bowl

Chopped the tomatoes
Chopped the mushrooms
roughly chopped the lettuce and watercress

Now build your wrap and enjoy!
I started off with some dressing on the bottom a lot of the lettuce watercress mix and then some mushroom and tomatoes followed by some chicken and Parmesan.

I roll one side then tuck in both ends and finish off the roll- this keeps my wrap easy to eat and makes it so all the goodness stays inside!
Side notes:
I usually make recipes to serve 2 people but we always have leftovers but I do that on purpose- Jake always takes extras for lunch 🙂 so these end up serving about 3-4 give or take (Jake is a growing umm man? and eats his fair share 🙂
I will again say- I am no nutritionist I am just a normal person who likes to eat all kinds of things but also lives a regular active lifestyle- so I don’t know calorie counts for the recipes I post.
