Roasted chicken Cobb salad with the best bacon & other goodies

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Place the chicken in a baking tray and sprinkle with seasonings and oil. Then cook in the oven until the juices run clear when skewered. Set aside to cool a little, before chopping into bite-sized pieces.
  • At the same time, heat a little fresh oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and cook the bacon until a little crispy. Drain, chop and also set aside.
  • To make the vinaigrette, combine the oregano with 2 tbsp oil, the lemon juice and seasonings in a large bowl. Add the chicken and toss well.
  • Then toss the avocado, eggs, tomatoes, lettuce, blue cheese, chives and parsley with the chicken, dressing, bacon, a little salt, ground pepper, the white wine vinegar and more oil, if needed. Taste for seasoning.
  • nb.  For a traditional Cobb, serve in separate piles on a platter and dress.
