Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps with shredded chicken, an easy anchovy free Caesar dressing, croutons, tomatoes and Parmesan cheese in a spinach tortilla. Perfect for your lunchbox!
Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps are an easy lunchbox meal that will save you both calories and money with a quick and easy caesar dressing made with greek yogurt and a spinach tortilla that adds both a fun color and an additional source of vitamins. This easy, portable lunch goes well with Pure Leaf® Lemon Flavor Iced Tea, and Pure Leaf® generously sponsored this post.
Pure Leaf® is brewed from real tea leaves, never from powders or concentrates. The tea leaves in Pure Leaf iced tea are fresh picked and expertly-blended by the team of Pure Leaf Tea Masters for an authentic real leaf-brewed tea taste.
Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps start with a base of chicken being cooked in the slow cooker in my Crisp and Juicy Slow Cooker Chicken method with no liquids and just a seasoning of salt and pepper. This method of cooking chicken is totally hands off and results in a perfectly tender, juicy chicken that can be pulled apart.
The caesar salad dressing we use for this Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps recipe is easy to make without anchovy paste and a quick swap of mayonnaise for greek yogurt. If you’re in a rush or don’t want to make the salad dressing, there are great light options and even some made with greek yogurt that you can use too.
If you’re looking for a way to keep the moisture down in the wrap, the large lettuce leaf we lay down first provides a barrier and you can add grape tomatoes in place of the halved cherry tomatoes. If you would like to keep the croutons crunchy you can add them just before eating or you can even back your wrap bento box style and just assemble right before eating.
The deliciously tart flavor of Pure Leaf® Lemon Flavor Iced Tea matches well with the lemon in the Caesar dressing. The tea works so well in this pairing because it’s simple and authentic – all Pure Leaf® iced teas are brewed from real tea leaves and never from concentrate. With the lemon juice in the dressing of the wrap the lemon in this Pure Leaf Iced Tea is the perfect complement to these wraps.
