Cooking with Kids: Chicken Caesar Wraps (Super Easy)

Thursday, June 17, 2010

 When I know I'm going to have a crazy busy night this super easy and healthy recipe is one of the first things to pop into my mind for dinner.  Not only does it come together 5-10 minutes flat, but it's also a great meal for the kids to prepare which frees up my hands even more.  :)  I let my kids prepare the salad, shred the cooled chicken, and each make their own roll-up.  This a well-loved meal in our house...for lunch or dinner.

The ingredients:
 (shredded cheese not pictured)

1 pkg. Caesar salad mix (or Romaine lettuce, croutons, and Caesar dressing)
1 rotisserie chicken, cooled and shredded (or 2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded)
1 pkg. whole wheat tortillas (warmed)
1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or pepper jack are good)

Directions: 
Prepare the Caesar salad as directed on package (or combine croutons, Romaine lettuce, and Caesar dressing).  Set aside.

Place your warmed tortilla on a plate.

Sprinkle a small handful of cheese over the tortilla.

Add a layer of prepared Caesar salad (dressing, croutons, and all)

Add a layer of cooked, shredded chicken.


Roll up and enjoy!

I love it! I usually always pick up a rotisserie chicken when I go to the store. It's great to have recipes and ideas for using it up! I like it even better because the kids can do it on their own.

So quick and easy! Did you put any dressing on it?

Yes the Caesar salad was made with dressing and croutons. I don't like too much dressing, so it's very light in our version, but you could use however much you like.
