  • Whilst the bacon and chicken are cooking do the rest of your salad. Dice your avocado, peel and slice your red onion, slice your tomatoes, and chop up your cheese. Then layer in your salad. Peel and slice in half your hard boiled eggs and add these too. Then sprinkle your eggs and tomatoes with salt. When the air fryer beeps, find a section for your bacon and chicken and then serve.

Swaps. You can mix and match your salad ingredients and treat it like the original Brown Derby Salad by having a fridge raid of what you have in. For example, any crumbly cheese will do the trick and we used feta. Just like we didn’t have any chives and just used a basic summer lettuce.
Size. Go for a dish that is wide and it will make it easier to assemble the cobb salad.
Chicken. I find that the chicken is 75% cooked when I remove the eggs from the air fryer. Also, because the chicken has cooked at a much lower temperature it is more moist than usual. Then the chicken will finish cooking with the bacon.
