In case you were wondering, (which you probably were not) I did some over consuming this week/weekend. Um, at this point, it feels that it was mainly of alcohol (eeew fuzzy head), but most certainly also of food. How does this happen on Holiday weekends!?  Basically it has been just a free for all. My poor liver. Then I topped it all off with doughnuts and take out. I know.

Oh, sorry, what a mess I am. I guess I will just drink ice water and eat salad this week. Which is fine, as long as it is this luscious Fried Chicken Cobb Salad. And better than that- It is gluten free Fried Chicken Cobb Salad!

Oven Fried Chicken Cobb Salad

A few weeks ago, I showed you how I made these Gluten, dairy and egg free chicken fingers. Well, if you happen to make a few extra and then chop them up and add them to your salad you have something pretty awesome going on- I suggest you try it….

    What a weekend you had! lol Love that you topped it off with doughnuts :) Your salad look like the perfect start to the week :)

    • Thank you Amanda!! shouldn’t you top every binge weekend off with doughnuts!?

  2. Beautiful salad! Even though this is a healthy salad, it seems like an endulence as well.

  3. So glad you posted this! I love to make a huge Cobb salad on a platter and have it as the main course for dinner in the summer. I put the dressing on the side, so everyone can add their own. The larger this salad is, the more stunning it is, as your picture shows.

    I never thought to use fried chicken, so that’s a fun new way to make it. And thank you for not putting shredded cheddar cheese on it. Some people back east here think that shredded cheese is part of the salad – NOT!

    • I am a huge fan of “big salad for dinner” and things like a cobb even my husband will eat for dinner (and then ask what else there is!) The oven fried chicken definitely makes it a little bit more fun and adds another texture- I love this salad!

  4. LOVE this salad, Heather! Cobb Salad is one of my faves and it will be a scrumptious change of pace to enjoy it with fried chicken. Thanks for sharing. Pinned!

  5. You are taking Cobb Salad to a whole new level here. Looks amazing and clever use of baked chicken fingers.

  6. Gorgeous cobb, love the colorful layers!

    Oh my goodness love Cobb Salad and you added fried chicken! Dear lord have mercy! I sure hope your feeling better, it’s never fun to drink too much!

  10. Yum, I’m lovin’ all the flavors here. I’m still living off your cranberry vinaigrette, so I guess I should move on to something new…..this looks like a good place to start.

    What an amazing “no-guilt” salad — unless I decide to devour the entire platter myself. It looks just that tempting.
