But I was so in the "stuffed" mood that I also made tomatoes stuffed with curry chicken salad for my book club the next day. (It's very weird.. I really don't think of myself as a "club" type of person but I actually had two of these very girly-club things planned for the same weekend.) Anyway, my book club was cancelled last-minute, so I am LIVING in stuffed tomatoes and chicken salad. That's okay with me. I am crazy for these things. They fill you up in such a good way. I feel satisfied but not "stuffed" (there I go again) after having one:
It's really easy. I'm not a measure-it-out type of chef, but here are the ingredients if you're up for it:
For the chicken salad:
- A pre-cooked rotisserie chicken--> dice the chicken into small pieces
-Approx 1/4- 1/2 a red onion
-fresh crushed garlic clove (or 2!)
- a few celery stalks, finely chopped (how "cookbook-like" do I sound?)
- a teensy squirt of lemon juice
-salt & pepper
-Sour cream & mayo --> add both of these in until you like the consistency
-Curry powder--> add to taste but I usually keep adding it until it's a pretty shade of yellow
-walnuts and/or anything else you like to add to your chicken salads
-Stir it all up and add more whatever until it looks & tastes good to you
Then carve out the tomatoes like you would a little pumpkin & fill them up with the chicken salad. Top with scallions and add a few lettuce leaves on the side. It's also yummy served with fresh steamed basmati rice on the side.
If you're in the mood, I promise you, this food will make you so happy. I can't WAIT for lunchtime already. mmm mmm mm!
