Cooking for One- Chicken Caesar Lettuce Wraps

You know what time it is… Cooking for one! This week I am giving you a recipe that is very simple and very low in calories. I’ll be giving you the recipe for chicken caesar lettuce wraps. Below is a picture of this delicious dinner:


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 Chicken breast
  • Lettuce Head
  • Tomatoes
  • Croutons (optional)
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Caesar dressing
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Again, this recipe is extremely simple to make (perfect for a college student). Here’s what you have to do:

1. Season chicken with salt and pepper, cut into bite size pieces, then marinate in caesar dressing for 30 minutes.

2. Pour about 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a skillet pan, cook chicken until fully cooked

3. Rip the lettuce head into pieces

4. Place cooked chicken in lettuce head pieces

5. Dress with cheese, tomatoes, and croutons

6. Add more caesar dressing if needed

7. Serve

I really enjoy this recipe because it’s not just another boring caesar salad, it switches it up a little bit. This recipe also does not take a lot of time to prepare which is always a plus for college students who are in a rush and don’t have much time. It also doesn’t require a ridiculous amount of ingredients which is also very beneficial for students who are cooking on a budget.

This will be my final post of the semester so I hope you’ve learned some valuable lessons while reading this semester! I appreciate everyone who took the time to listen to be ramble about diets, workouts and overall just not being too obsessed with your weight. And as always…


Happy Eating,
