Chicken Caesar Wrap

3 chicken-caesar-wrap

You know what the hardest part of this recipe is?

It’s figuring out if it’s spelled Caesar or Ceasar.

I went with Caesar which is one of those words that you have to memorize the spelling on because it’s not pronounced like it sounds.

Ok, enough about the spelling already.

Let’s talk about this super delish wrap.

This is a great way to eat your salad on the go.

And it really hits the spot when you’re a bit too hungry for just a salad.

The chicken in this wrap is made with an oregano crust that adds great flavor with every bite.

So let’s check out the ingredients.

    It’s Caesar. You got it. That word is totally one of my pet peeves!! Like when you go out for lunch and “caesar” (“cesar”– noooo!) is spelled wrong on the specials board… makes me wanna carry chalk in my pocket.
    Anyway.
    These look great– that chicken is GORGEOUS.

    Tried and was wonderful – great for summer! Will definately make again. Have to admit I was too lazy to make my own chicken and bought Rotisseri chicken. I made a few too many and to my surpise – they were still good the next day. I expected to be mushy with the dressing on the lettuce
    – thanks, this was really good!

      Hi Jules, so glad you liked this. And the rotisseri chicken sounds like a great idea for these wraps. I love the taste of that kind of chicken. Thank you for letting me know and have a great day.
