Chicken Caesar Wraps for 41


How does a ministry meal for 41 homeless women and children begin? I utilize our facebook page and post an event with a photo to prompt others to donate or serve. I usually have to repost the event as it draws closer and decide on a menu. This month’s menu was chicken caesar wraps, watermelon and potato chips. I try to center our menu around seasonal vegetables and fruits and meats on sale. In this case, everything was donated except the chicken, which I boiled and prepped from home and the lettuce which I purchased. The carrots, wraps, chips and watermelon were donated via facebook! Isn’t social media a grand thing? It can be utilized in a beneficial way to help others.


Chicken Caesar Wraps

  • 2 batches of boiled convenience chicken, chopped {about 12 chicken breasts}
  • 3 heads of green leaf or Romaine Lettuce, rinsed and chopped in bite-size pieces
  • 6-8 carrots, washed, peeled and shredded
  • Cardini’s Caesar Salad Dressing to taste {I found a huge economy size at our local discount store}
  • 41 taco size wraps

Mix the chopped chicken, lettuce and carrots in large bowls or pots if necessary. Toss the dressing to taste right before wrapping. Place about 1/4 cup in each wrap and fold like a burrito. Serve within a few hours.

I was able to make 56 wraps from our filling. This may make more or less depending on how much lettuce and carrots you use as fillers. Also, the size of the tortilla makes a difference. I use the average taco size where burrito size would take too much filling. I always serve a vegetable or fruit side item to help stretch the meal further. In all cases, I stive to serve healthy, local if possible, seasonal and frugal meals to the homeless shelter each month.


Do you have any tips/tricks for making large meals for others?
