Spread the bacon out on a paper towel on a microwave-safe plate. Cover with another piece of paper towel, cook at full power in the microwave until crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Cool.
Meanwhile, in a large salad bowl, layer the avocado, tomato and eggs, seasoning them with salt and pepper as you go. Top with the mesclun greens, then scatter the chicken on top. Crumble the bacon over the salad. Bring the salad to the table and toss with the dressing so all the ingredients are evenly mixed together. Serve.
