Blackened Chicken Cobb Salad


  • ¾ tsp paprika
  • ¾ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 12 cups baby spinach or romaine, chopped
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 4 large eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large cucumber, sliced
  • 1 cup baby bella mushrooms, sautéed
  • ½ cup red onion, chopped
  • 6 slices cooked turkey bacon, crumbled
  • 2 avocados, sliced


  • ⅓ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil


Step 1

To start, place the chicken in a large bowl. Then, add in your spices and mix until each chicken breast is coated evenly.

Step 2

Now, it’s time to cook the chicken. You can either grill them on the outdoor grill or sear them on the stove, whichever you prefer. If using the stove, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Then, carefully lay the chicken on the skillet. Cook for about 14 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the juices run clear. Once fully cooked, remove the chicken and let them sit for 5 minutes before slicing.

Step 3

Meanwhile, you can start making the dressing. To do this, grab the vinegar, mustard, honey, sea salt, pepper, and olive oil. Then, whisk everything together in a small bowl or use a glass salad dressing jar.

Step 4

Next, divide the spinach or romaine among your plates. You can also choose airtight containers if you’re meal prepping. Then, grab equal portions of the chicken, tomatoes, eggs, cucumber, onion, mushrooms, avocado, and bacon on top of your greens of choice.

Step 5

Lastly, top the salad with a tablespoon or 2 of your dressing. Serve, then enjoy!
