Ingredients

  • 3tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound total), trimmed
  • 1/8teaspoon salt
  • 2small romaine hearts
  • 1/3cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 48- to 9-inch spinach wraps, warmed

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Combine lemon juice, oil, mayonnaise, garlic and pepper in a large bowl.
  3. Oil the grill rack. Sprinkle chicken with salt. Cut romaine in half lengthwise, leaving root ends intact. Grill the chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Two minutes before the chicken is done, place the romaine on the rack and grill, turning once or twice, until lightly charred and beginning to wilt, 2 to 3 minutes total.
  4. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Cut the root ends off the romaine, then chop the leaves. Add the chicken, lettuce and Parmesan to the bowl with the dressing; toss until well combined. Fill each wrap with about 1 1/2 cups of the salad and roll closed.

Tips

Oiling a grill rack before you grill foods helps ensure that the food won’t stick. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to coat the food with cooking spray.
