Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad … a BEAUTIFUL mix between a buffalo chicken salad and a Cobb salad, that will have your family begging to make again and again!

Hey all,  Jessica from Fantabulosity here again!  I’m a sucker for a fantastic, salad.  Chopped romaine, endless toppings, beautiful colors, rich and “herby” dressings… oh, I could eat one every stinking day.

Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad - a perfectly easy summer dinner the whole family will love

I sort of have a current crush on Cobb salads, and buffalo chicken.  So while in my kitchen the other day, thinking of what to make for dinner, I decided on a whim to combine the two, making a Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad.  Best.Decision.Ever.Made.

MY OTHER RECIPES

If you follow me on Facebook, then you’ve more than likely seen one of my “hot-mess,” Facebook “live,” videos, of me cooking in the kitchen.  I love shortcuts, and if it’s pre-made/pre-chopped, it’s going in my cart.  If you’re the type that likes to make/cut everything from scratch, go for it!  But for now, I’ll show you how I cut corners in my kitchen.

Ingredients for a Chicken Cobb Salad

This Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad is so easy to make!

I even had a bit of luck at the grocery store, and found pre-cooked, cut, and “buffalo style” chicken. (Although I like to kick it up a notch and add a bit more hot sauce.)

The beautiful thing about this recipe, is that if you like an ingredient more than one of the others, mix-it up and go crazy, or take away what you don’t like!  I tend to go heavy on the buffalo chicken and hot sauce, myself.

This recipe makes a large salad, and fed our small family of four, for dinner!

Ingredients

  • 1 Bag Romaine Lettuce I used a bag of pre-chopped romaine, chopped in to small pieces
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Bacon I used the packaged real bacon bits to save on time
  • 1/4 of a Red Onion chopped
  • 2 Chopped hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 cups chopped cooked “buffalo style” chicken
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Dash of hot sauce optional

Instructions

  1. Toss the chicken in hot sauce, before placing on salad, if you prefer a spicy flavor.
  2. Cover the platter with your chopped romaine, and arrange each remaining ingredient, in single lines, for a “wow,” presentation factor.
  3. Before serving, you can toss the salad to allow each serving to receive equal amounts of heavenly goodness.

Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad - easy and delicious; my whole family loved it!

For a dressing, I’ll usually add a fun-flavorful dressing, like “fiesta ranch,” “spicy ranch, “avocado-lime,” or simply the Hidden Valley Ranch that you can make at home, in the packet and using buttermilk.  (There’s nothing like it.)

  1. Oh, this sounds so good! Cobb salads are one of my favorites – a salad that is at least half toppings is ALWAYS a good idea :) And the buffalo chicken sounds like it would be amazing on this!
