With so many ways to kick up the flavor of a simple chicken salad recipe, why do so many versions still feature a sloppy, stodgy mess of mayo and underseasoned chicken? For our flavor-packed Cobb Chicken Salad recipe, we found that sautéed boneless, skinless chicken breasts produced better flavor than the poached chicken most chicken salad recipes require. To create a distinctly flavored Cobb Chicken Salad recipe, we used flavorful ingredients like crumbled blue cheese and bacon. And using sour cream in the dressing lightened its texture so it didn’t weigh the chicken down.

Makes about 6 cups, enough for 6 sandwiches

Serve on toasted white bread or a baguette. If making salad in advance, refrigerate bacon separately.
