How to store a Caesar Chicken Wrap

If you happen to have a leftover chicken caesar wrap that has already been assembled, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or foil and store it in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.

That said, your tortilla will likely get soggy, and your lettuce may wilt a bit. If at all possible, I highly recommend waiting until you are ready to eat your wrap to assemble it. 

Leftover salad can also be covered and stored in the refrigerator for 3-5 days, then added to a tortilla when it’s time to eat.

Once again, I recommend waiting until you are ready to eat and then making small batches to avoid excessive leftovers. Fresh is best!

Chopped Chicken Caesar Wrap FAQs

Is a Chicken Caesar Wrap Good For You?

With a bit of attention, making this grilled chicken caesar wrap a healthy option for almost any diet or lifestyle is easy.  A few key points:
– Choose your dressing wisely. There are low-sugar, low-fat, and healthier fat options out there. It all depends on your personal goals. 
– If you are gluten free or paleo, you can choose crouton alternatives such as roasted chickpeas, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and even air fryer croutons!
– Change up your tortilla. There are low carb, gluten free, keto, and paleo wraps available. 
– Choose a hard block of parmesan for lower sodium over the prepackaged stuff. You’ll get more flavor too!

How Do You Keep a Chicken Caesar Wrap From Getting Soggy?

The best way to keep your grilled chicken caesar wrap from getting soggy is to wait until you are ready to eat to assemble it. That way, it doesn’t have time to get soggy.
That being said, we all lead busy lives, and sometimes things need to be made in advance. If you need to preassemble your caesar wrap, try keeping the dressing on the side until it is lunchtime.
That way, your lettuce will stay crisp, and your tortilla will remain dry. Win-win!

How Do You Keep Wraps From Breaking?

First of all, don’t overfill your tortilla. Anything will break when pushed to its limits. 
After that, the number one way to keep your wraps from breaking is to warm up your tortillas first. A little bit of heat makes wraps much more bendy and pliable.
There are a few ways to accomplish this:
– Heat each tortilla in the microwave for 15-30 seconds, depending on your settings.
– Use a super hot cast iron skillet to warm each tortilla.
– If you need to warm up multiple tortillas at once, wrap them in foil and place them in a 300 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
– Once your tortillas are warmed, you can keep them under a dampened paper towel or cloth to hold in moisture and keep them pliable.
