Healthy and Creamy Chicken Caesar Wrap


I love Chicken Caesar Wraps. I used to always order them when I went out to eat in a diner. There is something about that pungent and creamy Caesar dressing that I love. I have tried making wraps or eating salads with the lower fat non creamy version of the dressing. That just didn't do it for me. When I eat salads or wraps I just have to have the creamy version of the dressing.

I have been making my own dressing since starting on this weight loss journey and kept adding things to make it creamy like nonfat Greek yogurt and avocado. After a lot of trial and error I finally created a creamy Caesar dressing that I love.

Creamy Caesar Dressing
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tblsp olive oil
  • 2 tblsp Parmesan cheese
  • 2 fillets of anchovies
  • 1 tblsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • pinch salt
  • pinch of fresh ground black pepper
  1. Place all of the ingredients into a small blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper if desired.
  2. Store it in a small glass mason jar and use it up within 3 days.
**Take make it thicker add 1/4 of a small Haas avocado peeled and cubed.


Creamy Caesar Chicken Wrap
  • 3 ounces cooked chicken breast, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 serving Creamy Caesar Dressing
  • 2 tblsp shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 low carb whole wheat wrap (like La Tortilla)
  1. Place lettuce on top of wrap. Top with dressing. Add chicken on top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  2. Wrap, slice in half, serve with some kale chips and enjoy!

  2. This looks & sounds really, really good. I love chicken ceasar wraps too but have never made my own from home, I just never thought about it I guess. I'll have to add the ingredients to my grocery list so I can give it a shot soon.

  8. Interesting use of anchovy, I'm sure it lends a little salty taste to the wrap. This looks like a great recipe!
