5 Ingredient Chicken Caesar Pita Wraps Recipe

5 Ingredient chicken Caesar pita wraps recipe, easy chicken dinner recipeI first had a version of a chicken Caesar pita wrap when I was trying different meal home delivery services (you can see my comparison of 6 different meal delivery services here) and I loved the idea – it was like a chicken Caesar salad in a pita, like a gyro, super delicious. The one thing I didn’t like, however, was that there was way too much prep involved for something so simple.

5 Ingredient Chicken Caesar Salad Pita wraps recipeIf you’re short on time (like I usually am lol) I use already cooked rotisserie chicken. If I have a little more time on my hands, I like to simply bake chicken breasts and put about 1 tablespoon of Caesar dressing on them – the dressing acts like a marinade/sauce and really gives it great flavor.

5 ingredient chicken caesar salad pita wraps for an easy lunch or dinner ideaCan you believe that last week was Easter? How was your holiday? Ours was pretty low key. I do have to say a big giant thank you for all your prayers and positive thoughts that came in related to our house selling/buying which we’re going through right now – which I shared in last week’s post on making these 5 ingredient mini carrot cheddar cheese balls, I could really ‘feel’ the support virtually and I appreciate your emails and comments. Truly, thank you. I know it made a difference, and I cannot wait to update you on what I hope all happens in the next month.

5 Ingredient chicken Caesar pita wraps recipe, easy chicken dinner recipeTo make these chicken Caesar pita wraps, all you do is get some rotisserie chicken (or you could use the baking method I talked about earlier), salad, shaved Parmesan, your favorite Caesar dressing (I like the yogurt based Caesar salad dressings) and some pitas. You toast the pitas, pile them high with lettuce, add on a little dressing, add chicken slices, sprinkle on some cheese and voila, dinner is done!

      This is definitely super easy, I think you’d love it! I use Marzetti brand of Caesar dressing (it’s usually in the refrigerated section by the salads at the grocery store)
      Best,
