A Healthy California Cobb Sandwich in Just 10 Minutes

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 40 minutes | Yields: 2 servings
A delicious Cobb salad, now in the form of a portable sandwich! That’s a double hooray!! The California Cobb Grilled Chicken Sandwich is a meal that can either be made ahead of time or as and when you crave it. The best part of this chicken sandwich with a twist, is not only is it healthy but also diabetic friendly.


  • 8 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed & pounded to ½ inch thickness
  • 2 slices center-cut bacon
  • multigrain sandwich thins
  • ½ ripe avacado, cut into 6 slices
  • 1 large tomato cut into 6 slices
  • 2 tbsp yogurt-based blue-cheese dressing
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • thinly sliced red onions (optional)
  • Handful of mixed baby greens
  • Salt, pepper for seasoning


  • Reduce the grill heat to low and place the chicken on the grill. Cook the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until it is no longer pink inside.
  • In the final minutes of cooking the chicken, add the bacon to the grill. Add the bun halves, cut sides down, to the top rack of the grill (or away from direct flame). Grill the bacon until it’s lightly crisped, about 1 minute per side, and the bun halves until they are lightly toasted, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Chop the bacon slices into very small pieces. In a mixing bowl, add milk and applesauce. Stir until blended.
  • Place the bottom buns on a serving plate. Using a fork, slightly mash three avocado slices into each bun. Press the bacon pieces into the avocado. Divide the greens, onion, tomato, and chicken between the buns.
  • Spread 1 Tbsp dressing on the inside of each bun top, and add it to the sandwich. Enjoy immediately.
