After having a version of this chicken green goddess Cobb salad at Panera, I just had to make it at home, and fell so in love with this salad recipe that we’ve been eating this healthy and filling grilled chicken green goddess Cobb salad on repeat for the last few weeks!
Does anyone else get a little annoyed at how Panera changes their menu so frequently?
It seems like just as I’m getting to like something, it gets changed or removed from the menu. There was this insanely delicious Mediterranean flatbread they had for only a short time that I’m sad is gone, along with a bunch of other stuff.
Before I started doing the Summer of Smoothies and Salads my biggest problem with salads I think was that they weren’t filling.
I’d have a salad, and then be hungry an hour later.
When I had the Panera green goddess Cobb, it was hours into the afternoon and as I looked at a clock I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t hungry at all!
So if you’re looking for a healthy and filling salad, this is one I’d highly recommend.
I was very pleasantly surprised to find that Panera actually shared the recipe for their green goddess salad dressing. I followed the recipe blindly, only afterwards to see that it yields 2 cups of dressing! That’s more than most dressing containers lol, so I’ve paired the recipe down for you below.
For the grilled chicken, I just marinated in a little bit of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt/pepper/oregano.
The bacon can be baked or cooked in the microwave or on the stove top – whichever method you prefer.
The eggs in this salad are hard boiled at 8 minutes, and they’re perfect!
Mix salad, bacon, avocado, grilled chicken, hard boiled eggs and top it with green goddess dressing, and you’ve got yourself one delicious healthy and filling green goddess Cobb salad! Salad dressing modified from Panera's recipe for Green Goddess Dressing
