Time: 30 minutes

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise

  • 1 clove garlic , minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound total), trimmed

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 2 small romaine hearts

  • 1/3 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese

  • 4 8- to 9-inch spinach wraps , warmed

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Combine lemon juice, oil, mayonnaise, garlic and pepper in a large bowl.

  3. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). 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.

Tip: Oil the grill rack before you grill to keep food from sticking. Bring a little bowl of oil out to the preheated grill along with a folded paper towel and a pair of tongs. Oil the paper towel, hold it with the tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill—it can cause a flare-up.)
