Lettuce & chicken wraps with green goddess Caesars dressing

These healthier chicken wraps with green goddess Caesars dressing and bacon are so crunchy and delicious; I plan to put them on regular rotation. It’s a great low-carb recipe that is packed with flavour. Adapted from my favourite Caesars salad dressing recipe.

You can decide how much effort you want to put into the meal by grilling your own chicken strips or buying a store rotisserie bird. Both are equally as nice. I’ve used my favourite mayonnaise – Hellmann’s, which gives amazing creaminess as well as a delicious taste to this dressing.

You could opt for Hellman’s Light if you want to cut a few calories. This is a cupboard staple in my house and my lunches would be lost without it.

If you don’t have Hellmans, you can make your own copycat recipe.

A generous handful of basil leaves, which I know is not traditional, turns this Caesars dressing into a green goddess rendition and I have been making it for years. I’ve fine-tuned it to the perfect ratio of ingredients, and this is the sweet spot for me. If I’m using this dressing in a dish where I don’t add Parmesan cheese, I add it to the dressing too.

Simply pan fry chicken strips until golden brown or cut up a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Fry or oven-bake the bacon until crispy before draining it on kitchen paper to remove any excess fat (optional).
