Simple Chicken Caesar Wrap

Okay friends, I have officially been obsessed with Chicken Caesar ANYTHING!

People always ask me, as a dietitian what I have been craving during pregnancy. And really, I feel like I have been pretty boring. My top two pregnancy cravings have been Chicken Caesar salads and Falafel! HA! When I was in New York everywhere I looked, I saw falafel and just decided I had to get it! I had some amazing salads at Sweet Green with falafel and when I got home I found some amazing falafel at Traders – typical! 🙂

For about a week I was making this…

THIS Mediterranean Plate! Sooo good!!!

Okay, on to the Chicken Caesar Wrap! When I was in Charleston recently working with one of the baseball teams I consult with, I was talking with one of the players about food… typical! We were discussing our love of Chicken Caesars. This player was telling me about how his mom ate Chicken Caesar Wraps all of the time during her pregnancy and now it is his favorite food. Naturally, this brought up two thoughts:

  1. Am I going to have a Chicken Caesar obsessed child?
  2. I NEED A CHICKEN CAESAR WRAP!

The latter is clearly what I was more interested in thinking about at the time! Instead of going to a restaurant and getting it, I decided to wait and make one at home! Nutrition tip: It is almost ALWAYS a healthier option to cook at home. I also had a cooking demo coming up with Sprouts and thought this was a great opportunity to come up with a SUPER simple and healthy Chicken Caesar Wrap! Enter this beauty!

I made it a bit healthier by using a Caesar dressing that had a fairly decent ingredient list, and using less dressing by just tossing it with the chicken. I added tomatoes because it’s beautiful and adds some extra wow; sprinkled lightly with parmesan cheese and voila! I also used a Whole Wheat Lavish that has a short and sweet ingredient list compared to some wraps that can be loaded with extra empty calories.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I have… Whether you’re pregnant or not! 🙂
