Ingredients

  • 12 Campari cocktail sized tomatoes (bigger than cherry tomatoes but smaller than your average tomato on the vine.)
  • cup cooked chicken finely chopped
  • cup pesto sauce my homemade pesto recipe or can use a store bought GF & DF pesto sauce
  • 1 ½ tbsp mayonnaise
  • cup mozzarella grated *optional

Instructions

  • Slice just the tops off of the tomatoes. Using a spoon scrape and scoop out all tomato pulp and seeds. Set aside tomato shells.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat combine: cooked finely chopped chicken & pesto sauce. Heat for 5 minutes or more until chicken is heated.
  • Add mayonnaise and stir. Remove from heat.
  • Fill tomato shells with chicken pesto mixture and sprinkle with grated cheese. Cheese should melt if the chicken is still warm. Can also use a kitchen torch very lightly and quickly over the top to melt the cheese. Serve immediately.
