Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps

I got a new recipe for you!

So Nico and I were eating dinner (I believe baked drumsticks and mashed potatoes) when he said that the chicken would be good in wrap like Burger King makes… and just like that I got an idea.
I pulled some chicken breasts out of the freezer so they could defrost.

In the meantime I made some Caesar Salad Dressing because I am not a fan of packaged and premade salad dressings.

Caesar Dressing:
1 cup Oil (I used Olive Oil)
1 clove crushed garlic
¾ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp dry mustard
¼ tsp pepper
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 eggs lightly beaten
Dash Worcestershire Sauce
Anchovy Paste

I used my handy dandy magic bullet and blended the lemon juice and eggs together first. I then added the oil, garlic, salt, mustard, pepper and parmesan and blended again. I added the dash of Worcestershire and anchovy paste a little at a time until it tasted how I wanted it to.

I store my dressing half in a squirt bottle and whatever doesn’t fit in that goes into a sealed Tupperware container.

For the wraps you will need:
Chicken (breasts or tenders)
Caesar Dressing
Tortillas (Large)
Romaine
Fresh Parmesan
Chicken
Bread Crumbs
Egg
Cornflakes- not necessary but I love it.

So once my chicken was defrosted I sliced my breast in half and then sliced the halves into chicken tender size.
I dipped the tenders into an egg wash.
After they are coated with egg dip them into a mixture of breadcrumbs (I use regular and panko), parmesan and some crushed plain cornflakes.
The coated chicken went onto a parchment lined sheet and baked at 375 for 12-15 minutes. Note that each over cooks differently so the time may need to be adjusted.
After the chicken was done cooking I started to assemble the wraps.
I take a burrito sized tortilla that was heated up in the microwave and place a nice spoonful of Caesar and spread it into a layer.
I layered a couple pieces of chicken over the sauce.
The next layer is romaine lettuce.
Then top the whole mixture with some freshly grated parmesan cheese.
Wrap, cut in half and enjoy. The wrap was so yummy and so filling that 1 was enough for both Nico and I.

We made some homemade French fries for the side but if you are trying to eat healthier then eat it on it’s own or with some fruit.
I know that I will be making these for lunches quite often as they can be made in advance.
