Chicken Caesar Wraps or Sandwiches
This recipe is super yummy and easy to make. My family likes to dip the wrap/sandwich into a lite ranch salad dressing. Oh…The dressing idea is not figured into the nutrition facts, so keep that in mind. J
4 ½ Tbsp flour
¾ tsp ground black pepper
6 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
3 fresh lemons, squeezed
1 Tbsp garlic, minced
6 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Dash of Tabasco sauce
6 tsp Parmesan cheese, grated
3 Tbsp walnuts, chopped and toasted
6 Romaine lettuce leaves
*6 (7 inch) tortillas, Low-Carb, high fiber, whole wheat (such as La Tortilla Factory)
OR 6 whole wheat hamburger buns
Several methods for toasting walnuts:
• Bake walnuts on a cookie sheet, in a single layer, at 350°F for 8 to 10 minutes, checking frequently.
• Microwave walnuts in a single layer on a microwave-safe plate on medium-high for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.
• Cook walnuts in a skillet at medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Regardless of method, walnuts can be toasted dry, without oil.
Combine flour and pepper. Coat chicken with flour mixture, shake off excess. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Over medium heat, lightly brown chicken on both sides. Combine lemon juice, garlic, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce; pour over chicken. Cover, simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken is done. Place chicken on a cutting and slice. Arrange lettuce on the tortilla; top with chicken. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese and toasted walnuts. Roll up and serve while they are still hot! Yum!
*Note: You can also serve the chicken breast on a whole wheat bun, if desired. If so, place whole chicken breast (without cutting) on **bun before adding Parmesan cheese and walnuts over the top.

Did you know!
The name “Caesar Salad” was given by the man who invented the salad, Caesar Cardini, NOT Julius Caesar as many people believe.
