The Protein-Packed Chicken Cobb Salad is one of my go tos and will pack a punch!
This salad is one of my favorites. It is perfect to add to your weekly meal plan. Take it to the office with you, eat it at home for lunch or even dinner. This salad is packed with so much protein it can easily be used for your dinner one night of the week. I love eating this for lunch on days I have a lot of afternoon errands to run and I know I won’t be able to eat for a few hours. This salad will keep you full for sure!
Before you get terrified of the eggs and butter. Let me just tell you, stop being scared! For years we were told to stay away from eggs, but unless you have an allergy, eggs are your friend.

Tips:

  • This is a great recipe to make ahead of time. It makes 4 servings, so make it ahead of time and place it in containers for later in the week. Have it all week long! It wouldn’t matter, as long as it is good! Right?!
  • I love using containers for meal prepping every week. I use these for my salads and these for my full meals. Click the links!
  • Even if you stay home with your kids throughout the day, go ahead and plan your meals and pack them like you would be leaving the home. That way, you have no excuse to eat something that is not good for you or scraps off of your child’s plate. (We all do it!)

Until next time….
