Chicken Ceasar Wraps

  
So I’m all about quick, easy and healthy with a 6 year old and 6 month old baby life can be hectic and meal planning isn’t always the easiest task to accomplish. These wraps couldn’t be easier and they’re pretty darn tasty! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Flat Out Wraps
  • 1 bag of Ceasar salad complete kit
  • 2 bags of precooked grilled chicken 

Mix all ingredients into bowl and coat well (I omitted the croutons to cut down on calories). 

  

Portion into flat outs and wrap. I wrapped mine in aluminum foil so it would hold together better in my husband’s lunch box. 

  (Ok so this is not the best picture but I was limited on time lol.)

  Makes 6 large wraps.
