Active Time: 30 minutes |
Total Time: 30 minutes
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 8 ounces), trimmed
Pinch of salt
1 small romaine heart
2 1/2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese
2 8- to 9-inch spinach wraps, warmed
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Combine lemon juice, oil, mayonnaise, garlic and pepper in a medium bowl.
Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Sprinkle chicken with salt. Cut romaine in half lengthwise, leaving the root end intact. Grill the chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°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.
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 the salad (about 1 1/2 cups each) and roll closed.

Oiling a grill rack before you grill foods helps ensure that the food won’t stick. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to coat the food with cooking spray.
Eat neat: Keeping the filling inside a wrap or burrito can be a challenge, especially if youâ€™re on the go. Thatâ€™s why we recommend wrapping your burrito in foil so you can pick it up and eat it without losing the filling, peeling back the foil as you go.
