  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound total), trimmed
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 2 small romaine hearts
  • ⅓ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 8- to 9-inch spinach wraps, warmed


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Combine lemon juice, oil, mayonnaise, garlic and pepper in a large bowl.
  3. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Sprinkle chicken with salt. Cut romaine in half lengthwise, leaving root ends intact. Grill the chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165 degrees F, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Two minutes before the chicken is done, place the romaine on the rack and grill, turning once or twice, until lightly charred and beginning to wilt, 2 to 3 minutes total.
  4. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Cut the root ends off the romaine, then chop the leaves. Add the chicken, lettuce and Parmesan to the bowl with the dressing; toss until well combined. Fill each wrap with about 1 1/2 cups of the salad and roll closed.

How many calories is a grilled chicken Caesar wrap?

Even though I like them, I don’t often order chicken Caesar wraps because most of them are unhealthy because everything in them, from the dressing to the tortilla to the chicken, is stuffed with extra calories with little nutritional value.
