Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad Lettuce Cups


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. fine sea salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. preferred vegetable oil
  • 8 slices turkey bacon
  • 16 romaine leaves
  • 2 Del Monte® Avocados, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 1 bag Del Monte® Bon Bon Tomatoes, halved
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
  • ½ cup olive oil


Prepare a medium-hot two-zone grill fire, preheat a gas grill on medium-high for 10 minutes, or heat a grill pan over medium heat.

Place chicken breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and pound with a mallet or cast-iron skillet until breasts are no more than 1" thick.

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Grill, turning occasionally, until internal temperature reaches 160°F and juices run clear when cut. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes, then thinly slice crosswise.

Fill a large saucepan with 1” water and place a steamer basket inside. Bring water to a rolling boil, and use tongs to gently place eggs in steamer basket. Cover pan and steam eggs for 10 minutes. While eggs steam, fill a medium bowl with ice water. When eggs are done, transfer immediately to ice water to cool completely. Tap eggs all over on a countertop to crack shells, then peel and quarter lengthwise.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place bacon in skillet and cook, turning once, until browned and crisp. Transfer to a plate. Once cooled, roughly chop.

On a large serving platter lay out sliced chicken, eggs, bacon, romaine, avocado, tomatoes, red onion, and blue cheese.

In a blender, combine vinegar, yogurt, buttermilk, honey, and garlic. While blending, add oil in a thin, steady stream until thoroughly mixed. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve lettuce cup fixings with dressing for drizzling.
