Chicken Caesar lettuce wraps

Make ahead some grilled caesar chicken and assemble your lettuce wraps for a healthy and easy lunch.

Ingredients:

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup caesar salad dressing, plus more for dressing
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • Juice of 1 lemon, divided
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • For lettuce wraps, romaine or butterhead lettuce is recommended
  • 1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 4 strips of bacon, crumbled (optional)
  • 1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan, for garnish

Directions:

In a medium bowl, toss chicken with dressing, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and half of lemon juice. Season generously with salt and pepper, cover with plastic wrap, and let marinate in fridge for at least 30 minutes.

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat remaining oil. Add chicken breasts to skillet and cook until golden and no longer pink, 8 minutes per side. Remove from heat, let rest 5 minutes, then cut into bite sized pieces. 

Assemble lettuce wraps: Fill each lettuce cup with chicken pieces, tomatoes, and bacon. Top with a squeeze of lemon, more dressing, Parmesan, and a couple extra cranks of black pepper.
