Chicken Salad Tomato Cups
With spring right around the corner, these Chicken Salad Tomato Cups provide a refreshing bite to brighten any mid-day meal. This recipe is as easy as can be. Just gather your ingredients and you are ready to go!
In this recipe, Pecking Order® gives the already roasted chicken an incredible depth of flavor and Chain Reaction® can be used to adjust the heat to your liking. When picking the rotisserie chicken, look for one seasoned using only salt and pepper, if possible. Chicken seasoned with lemon pepper, for example, will affect the flavor of your chicken salad. If you have the time, we recommend roasting your own chicken. Find our Roast Chicken and Vegetables recipe here!
We really enjoy how well the tomato complements the chicken salad, giving the dish a sweet and tangy note. We must also take a moment to explain the corn in the recipe. Those kernels pop in your mouth and it’s a sensory explosion. When you make it, you’ll see exactly what we mean!
As always, from our table to yours... #SpiceConfidently #EssenceOfFlavor #ChemistryInTheKitchen #CasaMSpice

LET’S GET COOKING
Core each tomato. Start by cutting off the top and discarding. Use a paring knife to detach the inside edges and then a spoon to scoop out the insides.
In a large bowl, mix the shredded chicken with all the ingredients, except the chives. Taste and adjust flavor to your liking. Salt and pepper to taste, add more Chain Reaction if you’d like more heat, Pecking Order® for more background earthiness and flavor.
Fill the tomato cups with chicken salad filling and top with chives.
