  • ¼ cup soy sauce reduced sodium
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1 head romaine lettuce roughly chopped
  • 6 tomatoes cut into wedges
  • 1 avocado halved, seeded, peeled and sliced
  • ½ small red onion thinly sliced
  • 6 soft boiled eggs peeled and halved
  • 1 cup blue cheese


  • To create the marinade for your chicken thighs, whisk together soy sauce, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • In a gallon size freezer bag or large bowl, combine chicken and soy sauce mixture; marinate for 2 hours. The longer you marinate, the more flavor you'll infuse into your chicken.
  • About a half an hour before your chicken is done marinating, chop your romaine lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, red onion and eggs. Crumble your blue cheese.
  • Preheat grill to medium heat.
  • Remove chicken thighs from the marinade. Brush them with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add chicken to grill, and cook, turning occasionally, until chicken is completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes.
  • To assemble the salad, place romaine lettuce in a large bowl; top with chicken, crumbled bacon, tomatoes, avocado, onion, blue cheese and eggs.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite dressing.


I use reduced-sodium soy sauce and season with salt and pepper as I go. If you only have regular soy sauce, you'll want to use salt sparingly or your chicken will be too salty.
