8 Min

These days, Cobb Salad is a standard menu item at restaurants from coast to coast, but did you know that it started as a way to use leftovers at the Brown Derby restaurant in California?

What You'll Need

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 to 1 ¼ pounds total), pounded to ¼-inch thickness
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 4 slices crumbled cooked bacon
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and coarsely chopped
  • 1 large tomato, coarsely chopped
  • 1 (2 ¼-ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1/4 pound blue cheese, cut into 1/4-inch chunks

What to Do

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and cook chicken over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden and no pink remains. Remove chicken, set aside to cool slightly, then cut into 1/2-inch chunks.
  2. Meanwhile, arrange lettuce on a large serving platter. Place cooked chicken in center of lettuce.
  3. Place bacon in a row on one side of chicken.
  4. Place eggs in a row next to bacon and avocado in a row next to that.
  5. Place tomato in a row on other side of chicken then place olives in a row next to tomatoes and chunks of blue cheese in a row next to them. Serve immediately.


Serve with Ranch or Blue cheese dressing.

I had one in 1977 on the north coast of Oahu, Hawaii. It had crabmeat instead of chicken. It was so good. Can't wait to get back there again and have one again.

This is a good Cobb Salad recipe. If you would like to try one before you make it, go to Bob Evans restaurants. They make a lovely, fresh Cobb Salad at a reasonable price.

Without the avocado, this sounds like a wonderful salad. Can't wait to try it!
