Cajun Chicken Cobb Salad Recipe

This evening for dinner I made my version of  a Cobb Salad with cajun chicken. It was delicious and very quick and easy to make.  Usually a Cobb Salad recipe contains blue cheese and eggs but I left out the cheese as I’m trying to trim down and had ran out of eggs.


Serves 4

  • 400g Chicken mini fillets
  • 1 pack smoked bacon
  • Cajun spice mix (usually in the spice section of most supermarkets in the UK)
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Punnet of cherry tomatoes
  • 2 Sweet red pointer peppers
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 Bag mixed leafs washed and ready to eat
  • Salad cream or mayo if you want it!



  • Wash cucumber and tomatoes.
  • Chop up tomatoes, cucumber and avocado up into small pieces leaving out the leafs as they stay as they are and set to one side.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with the spice mix and pan cook per pack instructions.
  • Whilst the chicken is cooking cut up the bacon into small pieces and pan fry until slightly crispy and a nice golden colour.
  • Arrange the leafs on a plate so it makes a base for the rest of the salad.
  • Arrange the rest of the items tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, bacon and Cajun chicken into rows on top of the leafs.
  • Add salad cream or mayo if desired.
  • You’re ready to eat!


I hope you enjoy making this Cobb Salad recipe as much as I do. The end result looks really colourful and it’s a great salad for children. My kids call it Rainbow Salad and always leave empty plates.
