BBQ Chicken Caesar Wraps

Quick and easy – these are sooo good!

These are a favorite meal in the summertime.  My mom and I went to a cooking class years ago by Stacy Joers, and this was one of the recipes - definitely a keeper.  I've often served them for a larger gathering, and had platters arranged so people can build their own wraps. 

We're doing these tonight on the grill, unless the rain forces us inside to the grill pan.

BBQ Chicken Caesar Wraps
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt & Pepper to taste
Barbeque sauce to taste (use your favorite BBQ sauce)
1 head romaine lettuce
Caesar dressing (make your own or use store bought)
6 10” flour tortillas
Red onion (optional)

Season chicken breasts with salt& pepper to taste.  Grill or broil until done.  During the last 5 minutes of cooking, brush chicken breasts liberally on both sides with BBQ sauce.  This is important - if you go slathering the sauce on right away, you lose a lot of it to the grill, and the meat will end up looking and tasting burned. 

While the chicken is cooking, toss the romaine with enough of the Caesar dressing to coat.  Warm the tortillas by wrapping in foil and placing in a 350°oven for 5 minutes, or place the foil wrapped package right on the grill, or microwave between sheets of paper towel for 15-20 seconds.  Slice chicken into 1/4”strips and place on a platter with the Caesar salad.  To assemble, take warm tortilla and fill with Caesar salad.  Top with chicken strips.  We like to add in thinly sliced red onion for a little bite. Serve immediately.
