Ingredients

For The Chicken Cobb:

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, plus more for dressing, see below
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder, plus more for dressing, see below
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, whole
  • 1/4 cup garbanzo beans, drained
  • 2 tbsp gorgonzola crumbles
  • 3 cups mixed baby greens, slightly packed
  • optional avocado (prepare day of)

For the Clean Ranch Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup plain full fat greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  1. Season the chicken breast with sea salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Once hot, add the chicken and cook until well-browned on all sides and cooked through, about 4-6 minutes per side.
  4. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove from the pan. Dice into bite-size pieces and allow to completely cool.
  5. To make the clean ranch salad dressing, whisk together the plain greek yogurt, almond milk, apple cider vinegar, dill weed, remaining garlic powder, coconut sugar, and 1/4 tsp. sea salt. Then, set aside.
  6. Using a quart size mason jar, layer about 2-4 tbsp. of our salad dressing, followed by the grape tomatoes, diced chicken, garbanzo beans, diced cucumber, crumbled gorgonzola cheese, and baby spring mix lettuce.
  7. When you’re ready to serve, you can also add an avocado or hard-boiled egg, too!
  8. Can be sealed in mason jar and stored in the fridge for up to 5 days.
