Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Wrap

A Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Wrap is 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 freshly picked and expertly-blended by the team of Pure Leaf Tea Masters for an authentic real leaf-brewed tea taste.

What Makes this Chicken Caesar Wrap so Good?

This Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Wrap starts with a base of chicken being cooked in the slow cooker using my Crisp and Juicy Slow Cooker Chicken method. This method has no liquids, 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. How to make a Chicken Caesar Wrap

Notes about the Chicken Caesar Wrap Dressing

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.

Tips to Reduce Moisture in Your Wrap

If you’re looking for a way to keep the moisture down in wrap note the following:

  • The large lettuce leaf we lay down first provides a barrier
  • 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
  • You can even pack your wrap bento box style and just assemble right before eating.

Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Wrap perfect for lunch

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 chicken Caesar wrap the lemon in this Pure Leaf Iced Tea is the perfect complement to these wraps.

  1. Can regular yogurt be used instead of green yogurt? Or just not use yogurt at all and use the mayo. Like that there’s no anchovy paste in it.

    1. I think sour cream might be a better substitute. If you decide to try it with the others, I’d love to know how it turned out. Good luck!

  2. I just love the lightened up Caesar dressing in these wraps! 🙂 A perfect spring or summertime lunch.

  3. I Love that you made the dressing instead of buying it. I also LOVE the croutons! So creative!
