Tomato “bowls” ready for filling in front of my little herb garden (where I got the fresh basil for this recipe)

Getting ready to go in the oven

These stuffed tomatoes are such an easy all-in-one meal to pack for a work lunch, but are also a new and exciting recipe for dinner! Lately, many of my patients have been expressing a little boredom with the meals they make themselves. 😕 I find it common for people to think that eating “healthy” has to be grilled chicken and broccoli, or a salad. 🥗🥦🤭 This recipe is a prime example to show that combining some common ingredients in a new way can really spice up your meal routine while still allowing you to stick to your nutrition goals 🤩 Servings: 4 Calories per serving: 249 cal Protein per serving: 30 g Carbs per serving: 11 g Ingredients: 1 lb boneless skinless chicken (about 2 breasts) 4 tomatoes 4 oz goat cheese 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar 1 Tbsp honey 1 Tbsp fresh basil 1 Tbsp bread crumbs 1/4 cup skim mozzarella cheese Salt and pepper to taste Directions: 1. Cut chicken breasts into chunks, and add to pan with a spritz of olive oil. Cook on medium-high heat over stovetop for ~10 mins until chicken is thoroughly cooked. 2. Remove chicken from pan and place in bowl with goat cheese, vinegar, honey, basil, salt & pepper, and 1/2 bread crumb. Mix well. 3. Cut tops from tomatoes and scoop out inside to create little “tomato bowls” 📸 *picture included! 4. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees 5. Spoon 1/4 mixture into each tomato and sprinkle with a little mozzarella cheese . Spray cookie sheet with olive oil, then place tomatoes on the pan and stick in the oven for ~8 mins until cheese is melted 6. Remove from oven, top with other 1/2 bread crumbs, and enjoy! 😋
