These Paleo Chicken Caesar Wraps are so delicious! The chicken is super crispy and the fresh romaine greens add a nice crunch. These wraps are topped off with cheesy nutritional yeast to add a nice cheesy flavor. You can have dinner on the table within 30 minutes with this recipe.
Why You Should Make This Recipe:
- First off, the chicken in this recipe is super crispy.
- Secondly, this recipe reminds me so much of my other favorite Crispy Paleo BLT Chicken Wraps.
- This recipe is naturally grain free, gluten free, dairy free, paleo and Whole30 friendly.
- This recipe is super kid friendly, I have yet to meet a kid that does not like crispy chicken!
- You can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes with this recipe.
- I am obsessed with the sprinkled nutritional yeast on top, it gives these dairy free wraps a nice cheesy flavor.
- This recipe makes for a great recipe to make during meal prep. I like to prepare the chicken on its own and keep the ingredients separated so all I have to do is assemble when I am ready to eat!
For the chicken-
- Chicken tenderloins-I get my chicken tenderloins from Butcher Box. Every month they send me a box of all of my favorite sustainably raised proteins. I love keeping a stash of their stuff in my freezer so all I have to do is thaw it out. I never have to worry about my meat going back. If you use my link to Butcher Box, you can get free ground beef for life!
- Cassava flour–I only use Ottos’ cassava flour. Note that not all brands are created equally and I have noticed a big difference in different brands and textures.
- Garlic powder & sea salt-For flavor.
- Cooking oil spray-I like the cooking oil avocado spray from Costco but any kind will work. You can also use a brush with oil on it in place of the spray.
- Caesar Dressing-I like the Primal Kitchen brand if you are looking for one that is already made. I also love making my own too with my homemade Paleo Caesar Dressing. Note if you are doing the autoimmune protocol (AIP) you can substitute the mayo with pureed artichokes.
- Tomatoes-For some extra flavor. Skip for AIP.
- Romaine lettuce-This is a must! I love adding this for the extra crunch.
- Nutritional yeast-To give these wraps a cheesy flavor.
- Wraps-You can make your own homemade cassava flour wraps using my recipe or buy your own. I like the siete brand. If you are doing AIP you will need to make my homemade wraps.
How To Make:
- First mix the cassava flour with the garlic powder and salt in a bowl.
- Next, spray the metal rack in your air fryer with cooking spray oil. If you do not have a spray, use a brush to coat the oil onto the rack.
- Now dip the chicken tenderloins into the cassava mixture. Make sure the tenders are well coated.
- Add the chicken to the air fryer and then drizzle some oil on top to ensure that it gets nice and crispy.
- Now place the chicken in the air fryer at 400 for 7 minutes. Once the 7 minutes is up, flip the chicken and cook for an additional 5 more minutes.
- Once the chicken is done assemble the wraps and top off with nutritional yeast.
Can I Bake The Chicken In The Oven?
- If you do not have an air fryer and are using an oven, be sure to use a non-coated cooking rack over a baking sheet. This will help the chicken get crispy on both sides. Be sure it is non-coated, if it is coated in plastic it will melt in the oven.
Can I Make These For Meal Prep?
- Yes! I highly suggest waiting to assemble your wraps right until you are ready to eat but you can for sure prepare the parts ahead of time.
What Is Cassava Flour?
- Cassava flour is made from cassava root (yuca.) Cassava flour is widely used in paleo and AIP cooking because it is grain free, nut free, and gluten free. I only use the Otto’s brand because not all brands are created equally. I love using it to get things nice and crispy. It works well with breading just about any protein too-like my Gluten Free Fried Shrimp!
What Kind Of Air Fryer Do You Use?
- I have this Air Fryer and have been using it for years! It is so easy to use and has multiple functions.
- Be sure to heavily coat your air fryer insert with oil to prevent the chicken from sticking!
- If you do not have chicken tenderloins, you can use chicken breasts, just slice them up.
