Here’s a really quick, easy, and delicious meal that is perfect for spring and summer! I’m a big fan of chicken salad, and it holds up well to make easy meals throughout the week.
This past Sunday I came back from a long weekend business trip, and wanted something easy and filling for dinner that I could eat while catching up on other work. While grocery shopping I saw that pre-made chicken salad was on sale, so I snatched it up along with some tomatoes. I normally make my own chicken salad, but I’m not opposed to buying it pre-made in a pinch!
While pre-heating the oven to 325, I cut both Roma tomatoes in half and scooped out the seed portion, leaving a nice bowl-like shape. I scooped some chicken salad into the tomato, and added another heaping spoonful on top! To add a little kick to the salad, I sprinkled a bit of red cayenne pepper on top! I put the tomatoes in the oven for about 7 or 8 minutes, until the chicken was warm.
You can either pick the tomato up and take bites out of it or you can cut it up; it depends on how fancy you want to be:) Like I said, this was such a quick and easy meal, and was also really filing and delicious too! Of course, I would usually make chicken salad, and that would work with this little meal as well!
Now it’s your turn to share! What’s your favorite way to eat chicken salad? What meals do you start making once it warms up a bit?
