1. Chicken Caesar Salad
A classic wrap filling, but as with all things, it tastes so much better made at home! Simply take 4 wraps (wheat flour tastes best) and top each one with 2-3 cos or romaine lettuce leaves and some slices of cooked chicken breast. Add some parmesan shavings and then drizzle over some good quality Caesar dressing.
Or, if you want to go totally homemade, it only takes a few minutes to make your own Caesar dressing from scratch. Wrap each tortilla up tightly and cut in half diagonally to create 2 portions each for 4 people. Feel free to customise with bacon bits, croutons, tomatoes and so on!
