These Crockpot Chicken Caesar Wraps are a family favorite. Not only are they super easy to prepare but since the chicken is cooked in a slow cooker, there is no heating up the house. Great meal to prepare during the summer heat!

I hate grilling in the heat. So as much as I like a grilled chicken caesar, it isn't happening in the summer. This is when I like to bust out the trusty old slow cooker.
While I'm typically not a fan of hot and cold foods mixed together. There is just something magical about the cool lettuce paired with the warmed chicken. Just try it and you'll see.
- BONELESS CHICKEN - I've used boneless breasts but you can also use boneless thighs.
- BROTH - Chicken broth is best but in a pinch you could use vegetable.
- CAESAR DRESSING - whatever brand you prefer is fine
- TORTILLAS - I use flour tortillas
- PARMESAN CHEESE
- PARSLEY - Freshly chopped
- LETTUCE - Romaine
- BLACK PEPPER
See the recipe card for detailed instructions and steps.
- Slow cook the chicken with the broth for a few hours and shred it. Drain liquid.
- Add the shredded chicken back to slow cooker pot along with the Caesar dressing, parmesan cheese, parsley and black pepper. Cover and allow that to slow cook for 30 minutes.
- Assemble the wraps by placing the chicken mixture and the lettuce in a wrap and rolling up.
All slow cookers / crock pots cook a little differently. Get to know your slow cooker and whether it runs extremely hot or whether it takes a little longer than most. This can change the cook times.
- Sandwich - instead of a flour tortilla, try a sandwich roll
- Pasta - Cook up the chicken and toss it into some pasta
- Croutons - if you want to add some croutons to the wrap try my homemade croutons
- Slow Cooker / Crock Pot
- Slow Cooker Liners - optional - easy clean up
- Shredding Claws - optional but great for shredding chicken
Leftovers can be kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Leftover Caesar chicken can be added to salads, sandwiches and pastas.

I don't know why I don't think of using my slow cooker this way, but this is the second recipe I've come across lately where it's used to poach meat unattended. I feel like smacking myself in the forehead, d'uh!
No smacking of the forehead Lydia! I've just recently finally come around to falling in love with my crock pot. Using it as a shortcut tool, as in this recipe, is my favorite way to utilize it! Hopefully I'll have more to share soon 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment.

What a unique way to use a crock pot- I never would have thought of it! Pinned!
Thank you Sarah. They were a hit over here, I may even put them on the menu again next week!
Such a great recipe!! Everyone loved it in our house. Super easy and really yummy! Will be making it again very soon.
This looks soooo yummy! I can't wait to try it.
Thanks Mary! I'd love to hear back how you like it if you do make it.
Yum! these wraps are my favorite at Red Robin's, and now I can make them at home. Thanks for the recipe!
Yum sounds delicious. Can't believe you've NEVER had ketchup relish or mustard! I don't care for the first two but love mustard -- my new favorite condiment. And mayo, I couldn't live without mayo. PB is another one I didn't grow up with and didn't have my first pb jelly sandwich until I was a freshman in college!
I know! I'm an odd duck, what can I say... And now I figure, why bother at this point in life. hahaha. Thanks for coming by Vicky
I love wraps and love when I can use a crock pot. Thanks for sharing!

This is the kind of meal sandwich I love to serve for dinner on a hot summer night. Pinning this to my Budget Friendly Family Recipes board!
Oh Great Karen! I think this will be a regular in our house when the hot weather hits. IF the hot weather ever hits 🙂

This recipe has become one of our regulars. Sometimes I have it over a bed of greens. It freezes well, too! Thanks for sharing it!
Great!! It's still one of our family faves too. Sometimes I even plop the chicken mixture on a bowl of pasta!
