One of my favorite movies is Julie and Julia.

I’m not really sure why I like it because I find Julie to be unlikable and whiny and just annoying.

Anyway.

My favorite scene in the movie is the cobb salad lunch. Julie goes out with 3 of her friends and all of them order a cobb salad without one thing or another. I think my daily viewing of the movie is what inspired this Chicken Cobb Sandwich.

Chicken Cobb Sandwich!

For this sandwich I made some blue cheese mayo, baked some skinless chicken, baked some bacon (so the pieces stayed flat), sliced tomatoes & avocado, and tossed some romaine in a vinaigrette.

Egg is traditionally used in a cobb salad too but I wasn’t sure how I felt about it on a sandwich. Feel free to add it if you’re into it.

These were delicious. Even after we ran out of chicken, I was having sandwiches because the flavors are that good. I love the vinaigrette on the romaine, it was a nice change from plain lettuce on a sandwich.
