Chicken Caesar Wrap Recipe 

The literal thought of these chicken caesar wraps makes my mouth water. The creaminess from a super easy, homemade caesar dressing combined with the tang and brine from kalamata olives and capers (my favorite) will make anyone’s taste buds do a little dance. They are fresh, crisp, and perfect for on-the-go lunches any day of the week. Packed with protein and flavor, they’ll keep you satisfied and energized to get through the day!

Caesar Chicken Wrap Ingredients 

  • 1 ¼ pounds of chicken breast 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup easy caesar dressing 
  • 4 pieces of green leaf lettuce 
  • 4 flour-style tortillas
  • ½ cup pitted and halved kalamata olives 
  • ¼ cup capers, drained

Caesar Chicken Wrap Variations

  • Use gluten-free tortillas. To make this recipe gluten free, use a flour-style tortilla like Mission GF Tortillas to wrap your chicken. 
  • Use store-bought dressing. Use your favorite Caesar dressing as a sub for the homemade dressing. Or, sub out the caesar dressing all together. Ranch would be a great swap and really tasty with the olives and capers.
  • Use rotisserie chicken. Use shredded rotisserie chicken for the ultimate in ease for assembly–no cooking required!

  1. Cook the chicken. To a large skillet over high heat, add the olive oil. Season one side of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place seasoned side down on the skillet and sear over high heat for 4 minutes. Season the side facing up. Flip over and cook for an additional 4 minutes. If your chicken breasts are exceptionally thick, you can cover the skillet with a lid, turn the heat to low, and let them finish cooking for 10 minutes. Internal temperature needs to be 165°F, but I usually just measure done-ness with my eyes (make sure there isn’t any pink left in the thickest part). 
  2. Let rest and slice. Let the chicken rest for at least 10 minutes (this helps the juice stay in the chicken) then slice into 1/2-inch pieces. 
  3. Assemble. Toss the chicken with the dressing, then assemble the wraps. Lay out a tortilla, line it with lettuce, then add the chicken salad, olives, and capers. Fold the tortilla lengthwise over the filling, tuck in the sides, and roll into a secure wrap. Repeat for each wrap. 
  4. Serve and enjoy! Slice each wrap in half and enjoy! Or, if you are meal prepping, slice your wraps in half and store them in an airtight container in the fridge for easy grab-and-go lunches. 

Note: You can also grill the chicken breast for a super easy way to cook your protein for this recipe. 

Best way to store a Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap
