Instant Pot Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps

Instant Pot Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps

In the spirit of enjoying a well-deserved day off a couple of weeks ago I decided to spend the day hanging out with my oldest son. Of course, I thought we could go out for lunch then maybe doing something fun. I was a little bummed then honored when he asked that I make something special for lunch for just the two of us. 🙂 I had recently had some chicken Caesar salad wraps at a restaurant and had really been craving some more so I decided to make Instant Pot Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps!

First, start with some pre-cooked bacon. If you don’t have any that’s no problem because you can preheat your oven to 425-degrees and cook some in about twenty minutes or so on a foil-lined baking sheet (helps on clean-up) depending on how crispy you like your bacon or how thick it is you may end up cooking it a little less or a little longer. I usually turn the pans halfway through cooking, and drain off excess grease into a bowl.

While the bacon is doing it’s thing in the oven, you can take the chicken and cube it. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Set the Instant Pot to the saute function, and saute the chicken for about five minutes. We’re really just looking to seal in some flavor, and get a little bit of color to the meat.

Next add the chicken broth, pepper, garlic powder, cream cheese, fresh grated parmesan cheese, and Caesar salad dressing to the Instant Pot. Cook on saute for a few more minutes to melt the cream cheese.

Next, close and seal the lid to the Instant Pot then cook on High Pressure for 15 minutes. Once done perform a quick release according to your manufacturers directions. Warning that there will be a lot of liquid. If you don’t want to make wraps you could definitely serve this on pasta, rice, or cauliflower rice with crumbled bacon and cheese. If doing this, add the remaining ingredients to the Instant Pot, but do not shred the chicken.

Remove chicken to a bowl, add an additional 1/4 cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese, 1/3 cup of Caesar salad dressing, and 1 cup of the pan sauce to the chicken and shred. I layered mine with a wrap, chicken, bacon, crushed pumpernickel croutons, shredded romaine lettuce, and yes just a little more cheese. What can I say…I love cheese!

After this roll up the wrap, slice in half, and enjoy your Instant Pot Caesar Salad Wrap’s for lunch. We ate ours warm but you can always store this in an airtight container to eat later in the week. You can precook the bacon, shred the lettuce, and grate the parmesan to store in snack bags for a quick grab-and-go lunch or meal prep option!
