Chicken Caesar Wraps

 





















Do you guys like caesar salads? I do. For awhile there, they were my favorite salad. They may not be the healthiest salad option, but they are one of the tastiest. I was geeked to see this wrap version! Genius.

And it doesn't require a lot of work, besides pre-cooking the chicken, chopping the croutons, and breaking up the lettuce. You may have to grate your cheese if you don't buy the already-grated kind. Still not very much work though, don't you agree?

So first cook your chicken and then cut it up into cubes. Meanwhile, combine the dressing, cheese, garlic powder, and pepper in a large bowl. Then add that cooked chicken, the romaine, and chopped croutons. Mix it up....


















.... then spread it evenly over each tortilla. I used regular white flour tortillas. The original recipe calls for whole wheat tortillas, which is obviously better for you. If you are healthier and stronger willed than I am, please use the whole wheat tortillas. Don't follow my bad example.






















And I apologize for the slightly blurry photos. The food was still good though!

This definitely qualifies as a weeknight, work night meal. Gotta love those. You could have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes. Or it would even make for a perfect lunch. So if you're ever tired of the same old salad, try a wrap!


Peace, and bacon grease!
