Recipe ingredients

Labeled Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap ingredients in various bowls.

Ingredient notes

  • Flatbread: A pita, naan, or tortilla; anything will do.
  • Caesar dressing: To make my simple homemade version, whisk together 1 cup mayonnaise, ¼ cup lemon juice, 2 tbsp. spicy brown mustard, 2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, and 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper (I like ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper). Or, substitute a bottle of store-bought dressing.
  • Romaine lettuce: Romaine is the traditional base for restaurant Caesar salads, so that’s what I call for here. Feel free to trade in green leaf lettuce, iceberg lettuce, or butterhead lettuces like Bibb or Boston.
  • Cooked chicken: Leftover chicken from earlier in the week, deli rotisserie chicken, grilled lemon chicken, my DIY Rotisserie Chicken; choose your own adventure.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Working with one at a time or assembling all wraps at once, place flatbread on a flat surface. Spread Caesar dressing in an even layer. Top with romaine lettuce, chicken, and Parmesan cheese.

Recipe tips and variations

  • Yield: This Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap recipe makes 4 filling flatbreads. Pair with a salad or side of potato chips and lunch is done.
  • Make ahead: Since the dressing and lettuce can make the flatbread soggy over time, these are best eaten the day they’re made. If desired, assemble, wrap in foil, and refrigerate in the morning to eat later that day at lunch or dinner.
  • Pick your protein: Grilled shrimp, steak, or even leftover turkey after a holiday dinner would work well in place of the chicken, if desired.
  • Ranch wrap: Substitute ranch dressing for the Caesar if that’s more your style.

  1. Is the grated Parmesan cheese used in the Caesar dressing fresh grated or canned grated? Is the bag Parm. OK to use if I don’t have a “hunk” of cheese to grate myself? I would think the dressing should be “lump” free? What kind of Parm. will give me bet flavor without lumps? Anxious to try it! Tig

  2. I was wondering what to do with some left over roast chicken breasts. I cut them into strips, skillet fried them in oil and butter, S&P, made your Caesar dressing (with a few taste preference adjustments) rolled them in a lightly fried gluten-free burrito wrapper and it now is in the “what’s for lunch” lineup.   Delicioso!!!5 stars

    1. You are just the best!!!! What were your taste-preference adjustments on the Caesar? Just curious. 😉

  3. Love how simple this is, Meggan, and love the little video too – it’s perfect! 

    Definitely going to check out your egg-yolk-and-anchovy-free dressing, too!5 stars

    1. Hi Yvette, you absolutely can! Just make sure to drain the chicken before adding it in! – Meggan
