Weekly Recipe #120: Chicken Ceasar Wraps

By Gwen Hill, Open Arms Registered Dietitian

As a new mom, the need for quick meals has never been more important. And as a dietitian, I have a desire to keep my quick meals healthy. This is one recipe that my husband and I have used often in the past few weeks. It is light enough for summer, healthy and quick. The beauty of this recipe is that it is a base for endless wrap possibilities: the protein can be traded out for a different kind, the dressing can change out for any that you prefer, and the wrap flavor is up to you. Add in some delicious seasonal greens and other vegetables, and you have recipe that you can use all summer.

Chicken Caesar Wraps Serves 2
1-2 chicken breasts (depending on the amount you want)
2 spinach flavored tortilla wraps

Salad Ingredients:
4 cups mixed greens
¼ cup parmesan cheese
½ cup croutons
Lite Caesar dressing (amount based on your preference)

1. Grill chicken. We do this on our George Forman grill when the time for setting up the actual charcoal grill is limited.

2. Cut chicken into ½ inch strips.

3. Make salad by mixing all salad ingredients in a bowl.

4. Fill one tortilla wrap with the amount of salad and chicken that you desire.

5. Wrap up tortilla and enjoy!

*For a little more flavor, rub a Cajun seasoning on the chicken before grilling…. yum!!
