Chicken Cobb Salad
Cobb salads are often labeled unhealthy because of the oversized restaurant ones. This healthy chicken Cobb salad recipe for one is a great low carb meal.
Place spring mix greens in a large bowl or on a plate.
Top with sliced chicken, bacon, hard boiled egg, blue cheese and avocado.
Add grape tomatoes and blue cheese dressing if desired.
To be sure I don't overdo the cheese, I like to weigh out the correct portion size on a food scale. One ounce of blue cheese is a good amount for this salad.
If you'd like to cut the calories, you could use only half the amount of cheese or 0.5 ounces. It's not a big difference as half an ounce of blue cheese has about 50 calories with only 0.3g carbohydrate.
When cooking a skinless chicken breast, butterfly it by slicing it in half in the middle. This makes it thinner, so it cooks more evenly and faster.
