When working from home, you have the luxury of creating and revising some of your absolute favorite lunchtime meals. Making your lunch at home not only saves you a ton of money from eating out but also, it allows you to have a closer watch on what is actually being used to make your favorite and delicious meals.

This salad is delicious! –My Mom

Chick Fila's Chicken Cobb Salad is one of my favorite salads to buy from a restaurant chain alongside Olive Garden's Caesar salad. Growing up, my mother loved blue cheese dressing and to this day she still does; however, I just couldn't get past the taste. But as I grew into my own, became an adult and started making my own salad while working from home. I realized that it's really not so bad at all. Hence, it is the dressing that is most commonly associated with Cobb salads. So, here's how I make my quick and easy Chicken Cobb Salad.

Let's Get Started

​Serves 1

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Calories: 500-600


  • ½ head of Iceberg Lettuce

  • 1lb chicken breast (I use thinly sliced)

  • 2 strips of bacon

  • 1 egg

  • ¼ cup - bell pepper

  • ¼ cup - purple onion

  • ¼ cup - cucumber

  • 1 Roma tomato

  • ¼ cup - fresh broccoli florets


  1. Cook bacon: In a non-stick skillet or skillet of your choice, cut slices of bacon in half and fry on medium to low heat as you don't want them to cook too fast and/or burn.

  2. Boil eggs: Place egg in a pot of water and let boil for 8-12 minutes until desired consistency.

  3. Cook chicken: In a separate skillet, add a tablespoon of olive oil and add chicken if using thicker chicken breast, I recommend cutting in half horizontally. Ensure to generously season the chicken (before adding to skillet) with a teaspoon of each: salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, garlic & herbs, season salt and paprika. Cook until there is no pink. Note: I cook my chicken breast on medium heat as to ensure its not overcooked but tender, juicy.

  4. Assemble Salad: Cut up lettuce, onions, bell pepper, cucumber and tomatoes into desired sizes. Place greens in a large bowl or plate. Top with tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, onion, bacon, chicken and egg.

  5. Drizzle salad with your desired dressing.
