A Simple No Fuss Chicken Caesar Wraps Recipe.
Chicken Caesar Wraps Are So Easy To Make.
Chicken Caesar wraps are one of my favorite foods to make. They are great for lunch or supper. I also make them a lot at the senior retirement home that I work at as a cook, and all my residents enjoy them as well. Also the wraps are kid friendly. The Chicken Caesar wraps take hardly anytime to make. So lets get onto the recipe and lets make some wraps!
Chicken Caesar Wraps ( makes 8 wraps)
** Boneless chicken tenders about 1lb.
** 1 10oz container of cherry tomatoes sliced
** 1 package 8 count flour tortillas ( Fajita style ) or whole wheat if you prefer
** 1 red onion peeled, cut in half and make half slices
** 1 head of lettuce, shred what you need
** 1 package shredded sharp or monteray jack cheese
** 1 bottle of Caesar salad dressing
** olive oil ( for frying )
** salt, pepper & garlic powder ( to taste)
Start by heating a frying pan with some olive oil, then add the chicken tenders, sprinkle with some salt, pepper and garlic powder, you don't need to much, just for added flavor. Have the heat on medium. You want to saute the chicken, not fry it, and you want the chicken to stay moist. While the chicken is cooking you can start prepping the other stuff. When the chicken is done, let it cool until when it is not hot to the touch, then you can start cutting it up into bite size pieces. Don't make big chunks, as it will make the wrap hard to eat.
Next put the chicken in to a bowl and add a really good amount of Caesar dressing, "or Italian dressing if you don't like Caesar". so anyway about half half a bottle, and toss it around really good, until all the chicken is coated. You don't want the chicken do be dry. I usually put the chicken in the fridge for about 1/2 hour to chill it a bit, but you don't have to if you don't want to.
Next step place some chicken on the wrap, add the lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cheese, then proceed to roll the wrap up tight, and secure each end with a toothpick. You can then cut the wrap in the middle at an angle, as this makes the first bite easy. Add some chips, Bread & Butter pickles, and fresh fruit and you have a meal. Without a ton of calories either. And that's a good thing. And healthy to.
I also like to make Chicken Ranch Wraps as well, for a change of pace. I make them with Hidden Valley Bacon Ranch dressing , or Ranch Peppercorn dressing. Now on this wrap it's fun to put cucumbers, which helps give the wrap a crisp taste. Feel free to add anything that you like. It's your wrap and you can have it your way! You can also wrap these in aluminum foil and throw them in the fridge for the next day, any longer than they and they will turn soggy. Hope you enjoy this recipe, and it's really great for summertime, refreshing and cool! And hardly anytime spent in the kitchen.
Update: So Today I tried the chicken with Taco Bell Spicy Ranch flavor dressing, made by Kraft. And I gotta tell you, it had just the right kick to it, not overly spicy, it was just right. I really liked it, and I will make it this way again. So you see making a wrap can be fun and versatile, as well as satisfying every ones taste.
So for now "That's a Wrap". Enjoy!
