Chicken-Stuffed Tomatoes

Nancy MacLeod of Boynton Beach, Florida turns garden-fresh tomatoes into a sensational summer meal when she fills them with this creamy chicken salad. “I came up with this recipe when I had a lot of fresh tomatoes on hand,” she relates. “It’s great for lunch or dinner with a side salad and some crusty bread.”

    Made as written but I found it to be boring. Added a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkling of seasoning salt to perk it up a bit. Finished the last two servings on toast and found that to be tastier than in a tomato which just seemed to add to the blandness. Two stars because it wasn't inedible, just boring; won't make it again.

    I had in my mind when I decided to fix this that it would be better warm with toast points on the side which is how I served it and everyone loved it. Everything I had was basically cooked except the tomato so I added a little rosemary and omitted the walnuts (only because of my family's tastes) and I put the stuffed tomatoes in the oven for about 20 minutes on 300.

    I did not really care for this at all. Maybe it would have been better as a sandwich on toast; but I will not be making again.

    I ended up just putting this on toasted bread. Basically a chicken salad sandwich. The ranch really made this good. We will be using this recipe for sandwiches again!
