No trip to Costco is complete without a $4.99 rotisserie chicken being added to my cart. My family likes dark meat, so we’ll usually eat the legs for dinner first and I’ll save the bones for making chicken stock. But there’s still a lot of chicken leftover after that. By shredding the chicken breast meat (here’s how to do it in less than a minute!) and picking up just two other ingredients while I’m at Costco, I can turn them into a super-quick and tasty meal that’s perfect on a busy weeknight. These hearty Costco chicken Caesar salad wraps have become a favorite at my house — and they’re budget-friendly too!

Why You’ll Love It

  • It’s a complete meal with bread, chicken, and salad. And it comes together in less than five minutes.
  • The cost for each wrap comes to about $1, and each person in my family averages eating two. The ingredients will cost about $20 in total, but there’s enough to make a double recipe (18 wraps), or you can use the leftover ingredients in other ways.

Key Ingredients in Costco Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps

  • Costco rotisserie chicken: This $4.99 gem (it will always stay the same price) is sold fresh and hot throughout the day and now comes packed in a bag rather than plastic clamshell.
  • Mini naan: These cute flatbreads made by Stonefire are the perfect size for stuffing and folding in half like a taco. Each pack contains 18, and you’ll find it in the refrigerated section, usually near the dips and spreads.
  • Kirkland Caesar salad kit: Grab a box from the refrigerated case near the rotisserie chickens. Each one contains romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, lemon wedges, croutons, and Caesar dressing.

How to Make Costco Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps

  1. Warm the mini naan. Choose one of the options listed on the package and warm 9 mini naan, stacking and wrapping them up to keep them warm.
  2. Toss the filling together. Shred the meat from a rotisserie chicken breast and toss with about half of the lettuce, Parmesan, lemon juice (from the lemon wedge), croutons, and Caesar dressing from the kit.
  3. Stuff and eat. Stuff the mini naan with the chicken Caesar salad mixture, fold in half like a taco, and eat.

Tips for Making Costco Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps

  • Shred while warm. It’s easier to shred the chicken while it’s still warm.
  • Eat open-faced if you want. Don’t feel like eating the wrap like a taco? Just pile the chicken salad mixture (you can even bump up the amount) and eat with a fork and knife instead.
  • Use up leftover ingredients. You only need 1 chicken breast for the recipe (or both if you do a double batch). Turn any remaining chicken into homemade Costco chicken bakes, hearty tacos, or chicken noodle soup. Serve extra naan with chicken makhini masala, or just top them with marinara sauce and mozzarella, and bake in a 450ºF oven until browned and bubbly for easy-peasy mini pizzas.

    breast from 1 Costco rotisserie chicken (about 10 ounces)

  • 1/2

    Kirkland Signature Caesar Salad with Caesar Dressing & Croutons

Instructions

  1. Warm 9 mini naan according to package directions. Stack together and wrap in a kitchen towel or aluminum foil to keep warm.

  2. Shred the meat from 1 Costco rotisserie chicken breast into bite-size pieces until you have about generous 1 1/2 cups and place in a large bowl.

  3. For each wrap, place heaping 1/2 cup of the mixture in a mini naan and fold in half (like a taco) to eat.

Recipe Notes

Storage: These wraps are best assembled and eaten immediately. You can refrigerate the undressed salad and chicken in separate containers for up to 2 days; toss with the dressing and lemon juice before serving.
