  • 2 large chicken breasts skinless and boneless
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • 8 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 3 eggs hard-boiled
  • 6 cups Romaine lettuce leaves washed and dried
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes halved
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 6 oz. blue cheese crumbled
  • 1/2 cup croutons


  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Rub the chicken with a mixture of oil, lemon juice, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Place a nonstick grill pan over medium heat, or turn on the outdoor grill, add a little olive oil and grill the chicken until golden and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side on the pan and about 10 per side on the grill.
  • Place the cooked chicken on a plate, cover with foil, and set aside to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • While chicken is cooking, fry the bacon and boil the eggs if needed.
  • Chop the bacon and the eggs once done.

Make the Dressing:

  • Add all the dressing ingredients to a blender or food processor and pulse until well combined and smooth.
  • Taste and adjust for salt and pepper and add water if for a thinner consistency.

Assemble the Salad:

  • In a large salad bowl or individual salad bowls, add lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and half of the croutons, toss to combine.
  • Top with chicken, bacon, avocado, and eggs.
  • Pour the dressing on top; top with the remaining croutons, and serve.
