Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap

Ya know, it's amazing what you can do with a few leftovers, and so few ingredients.


Leftover chicken breast (optionally: plain Quorn pieces dredged in Cajun seasoning {can do the same with the chicken if you want a spicier wrap}
Leftover romaine lettuce (iceberg will do in a pinch)
Leftover parmesan cheese (fresh grated right into the bowl preferred or why bother)
Leftover garlic and herb croutons
REAL Caesar dressing
Leftover flour tortilla wrap (the big ones)

Chop the lettuce in thin strips and put into a bowl big enough for mixing in. Shred the leftover chicken breast (or Quorn) and add to the bowl. Finely grate the parmesan cheese over the top of the bowl Sprinkle in a few croutons. Pour on some dressing and a dollop of mayo and give it a good stir.

Let the mix sit for a moment to let the croutons have a chance to soak up some moisture. Add a little more dressing and mayo if you think it's too dry! I love extra parmesan.

While the salad is 'resting', put a wrap in the microwave for about 20 seconds, flipping midway through. You want it just warm enough that it becomes soft and doesn't crack when you make the wrap.

Assembly is easy. Put a big spoonful . . . go on, add a little more . . . to the center of the wrap. Fold in the edges, then roll from the edge closest to you. Don't be afraid to use your fingers to stuff in the salad as you go. You can always lick them off :-)

Put the wrap on a plate, fold side down, and slice diagonally if you want to impress your friends.

Voila! One Chicken (or Quorn) Caesar Salad Wrap.

And yes, lately, I'm all about the food!!!
