Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high.

  • Combine lemon juice, oil, mayonnaise, garlic and pepper in a large bowl.

  • 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.

  • 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.


Tip: Oil the grill rack before you grill to keep food from sticking. Bring a little bowl of oil out to the preheated grill along with a folded paper towel and a pair of tongs. Oil the paper towel, hold it with the tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill--it can cause a flare-up.)

Eat neat: Keeping the filling inside a wrap or burrito can be a challenge, especially if you're on the go. That'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.

Great flavor with the grilled romaine. I added a little anchovy paste to the dressing to make it taste more like Caesar. Family really liked this. Read More

Very impressive! Going to see if my friend will eat it since he loves tortillas but not Caesar salad. Thank you! - Chase Read More

Instead of grilled romaine I usually use a bag of kale or spinach and massage the dressing in. It's yummy. My kids gobble it up. It's hard not to feel righteous when your kids stuff kale into their mouths. Read More

This is my go-to recipe for dinner during the week. Easy to make-I make an extra chicken breast when I grill chicken and it is enough for two wraps. When ready to use the extra chicken breast for wraps I slice wrap in foil add a couple drops water and warm it on the grill. It is very tasty and full of flavor. I tis one of our faves. Read More
