Summer Go-To Meal: Chicken Caesar Wraps

I have a new favorite go-to meal that happens to be perfect for summer: Chicken Caesar Wraps!

They’re easy, the ingredient list is short and compiled of items I normally have on hand, and I’m always surprised at just how tasty they are!

The other fun thing is you can make them super, duper easy or gourmet them up a bit, using more homemade ingredients. No matter how you make them, they are delicious!

I wasn’t really planning to do a post about chicken caesar wraps, but when we were eating them for dinner last night, Anna said, “Mom, you should take a picture of these for your blog!” She’s always looking out for the blog!

Summer Go-To Meal: Chicken Caesar Wraps
Recipe type: Main Dish, Poultry
  • Flour tortillas or other wrap that you like (I prefer uncooked tortillas that you cook on the stove, they are delicious and are nice and flexible, which is perfect for a wrap)
  • Cooked chicken breast (You could buy pre-cooked chicken or a rotisserie chicken to make it super simple. I like to grill boneless, skinless chicken breasts on my grill pan salt and pepper the chicken breasts, cook over medium heat until temperature reaches 160 degrees)
  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Fresh Parmesan cheese, shaved or shredded
  • Croutons (You can make your own, but in this case I think the crunchy store-bought kind work nicely because they are so super crunchy, which gives good texture to the wrap.)
  • Caesar dressing (again, you can make your own, but I always have a bottle of Girard’s Caesar dressing in the fridge, so that’s what I use!)
  1. Lay out your tortilla/wrap, pile on all the other ingredients, fold like a burrito and eat!
  2. I like to spread some dressing on the tortilla before piling on the ingredients and then topping everything with more dressing before wrapping it all up!



  1. These sound great and I am always forget how many other things can be wrapped in up a tortilla besides the normal taco/burrito stuff.

    chicken casear salad has been my go-to for a few weeks as well, but I don’t wrap it. I should!! thanks! I make my own croutons, because I make my own bread, so all the ends or stale bits get cubed, lightly oiled, herbed, but then I toast mine in the oven – so they DO get super crunchy like the store bought ones. whatever we don’t use up in a week or so gets smashed up into breadcrumbs for another use.

  3. this was my go-to dinner at the fast food place on campus in college. my friend manned the chicken caesar salad/wrap booth….love these and i haven’t had them in years!!

  4. One of our favorite summer foods! You should make the homemade version sometime just for kicks 🙂

    BTW, are those the uncooked Costco tortillas? To die for. We always have them in our fridge to use for everything!

      these particular tortillas are a local brand in san diego (canasta) and they are my most favorite tortillas EVER…but they are just like the ones at Costco (which are also delicious!)

    This is a go to meal for me as well, however now that you point out the simplicity, I am embarrassedto say, I never make them at home. It’s what I always order at our country club for dinner because it’s relatively healthy! So good, now I am going to have to make them at home sometimes, because wow so simple! I ate this tonight, in my defense everything tases better when I don’t have to cook it…
