Instant Pot Chicken Caesar Wraps are a super easy and tasty lunch or dinner recipe. I used pre-shredded chicken so this was a 5-minute recipe.
Instant Pot Chicken Caesar Wrap
If you are on a low carb diet reach for a low carb tortilla or skip the wrap and do just a lettuce leaf. Tender shredded chicken loaded with tasty Caesar dressing, fresh tomatoes, parmesan cheese, and tomatoes.
How Is This An Instant Pot Freezer Meal
I am really into prepping meals ahead of time and making freezer meals. This caesar wrap is a freezer meal I created so that I could toss in my pot and cook later on down the line.
Can I Make This Recipe Without Freezing
Yes, you can make it fresh if you would like. You do not have to freeze the meat and ingredients. I just did that as I was meal prepping for the week.

That is what I used in my wrap. Now, you could add in some croutons for added crunch in every bite. Or add in more veggies if you prefer.
How To Make Shredded Chicken In Instant Pot
I batch cooked my shredded chicken. I used this recipe here on how to make Instant Pot Shredded chicken! It is SO easy, and quick. Two things I love and will never complain about.
What I did is bought a 3 lb bag of frozen chicken and then cooked it all up, and then shredded the chicken using my meat claws. You could also use a stand mixer or two forks to shred your meat fast.
Do I Have To Use Chicken Stock
No, you are more than welcome to replace the chicken stock with water. The stock just adds a bit more flavor to your chicken as it pressure cooks.
