I haven’t put many sandwiches on the blog yet, so I figured I would start with my favorite. Chicken caesar wraps are delicious, quick and healthy. Unlike traditional caesar salad, which is packed with calories and fat, this version is lighter and filled with vitamins. The key is using a low calorie or light caesar dressing. I prefer Newman’s Own, but Annie’s makes a great version as well. This is a quick and easy dinner that can be put together in minutes. I have substituted kale for traditional romaine for a boost of Vitamin A, iron, calcium, B Vitamins and antioxidants. I also added some grated parmesan for flavor and ground flaxseed for the omega 3’s. You can cook the chicken however you like, I prefer to season it with some black pepper, cayenne and garlic powder and grill it on my George Foreman.
