These healthier chicken wraps with Caesars dressing 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.

Lettuce & chicken wraps with green goddess Caesars dressing

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 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.

A generous handful of basil leaves, which I know is not traditional, turns this Caesars dressing into 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.
