As I have mentioned previously, one of the hardest courses to make gluten and lactose free is Appetizers. More and more people who are diagnosed with celiac disease are also finding that they are, at least to some extent, lactose intolerant, as well. But you know all of the yummy appetizers with, ooey, gooey, melty cheese. Along with puff pastry and sour cream. Need I say more?

So when I have a gathering that my Mom will attend, I try to make my life easier and come up with tasty appetizers that everyone will enjoy, and that she can eat. It saves me a lot of time.

Of course, the other bonus is that appetizers that are gluten and lactose free are waaaayyy healthier than their ooey, gooey, melty cheese counterparts. So, if you are trying to get healthier, lose all of the sour cream and cheesy appetizers, and do these Chicken Stuffed Tomato Bites, in stead! You won’t be sorry! Here are a few more gf / df appetizers! Strawberry Scallops, Taquitos, Shrimp and Crab Dip, Cranberry Orange Meatballs!

It goes without saying that the best time of year to make these is late summer when there are beautiful, plump, juicy, red cherry tomatoes! By me locally a few stores have lovely, red cherry tomatoes all year round but, let’s face it, they don’t hold a candle to fresh ones out of the garden! These Chicken Stuffed Tomato Bites couldn’t be easier. You can use either leftover chicken or canned chicken. Both are perfectly acceptable. A melon baller or a metal 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon work great to scoop the inside of the tomatoes out. Don’t throw the meat and seeds away! Throw them in a freezer bag and place in the freezer for use in soups, stews and pasta dishes!

Cut a little off the bottom of the cherry tomato, if they are very round and will not stand up. To make the chicken salad, add celery and scallions to chicken, along with spices. Mix with mayonnaise and then stuff the tomatoes with the chicken salad. Garnish with parsley and scallions and refrigerate until use. Best fresh, but will hold in the refrigerator at least 24 hours. A great altenative to the chicken is using seafood, too! Shrimp, Crab or a mixture of the two is amazing!

    I would be scoffing up more than my share of these chicken stuffed tomatoes Beth. You’d probably have to take the platter away from me. I love chicken salad with tomatoes! I can’t wait to make your recipe!

    I’m pretty fortunate that nobody in our extended family has extreme dietary restrictions, so I’ve never really thought about how difficult it can be to make diet-friendly appetizers. These stuffed tomatoes are PERFECT and I’ll have to remember them in case someone has diet restrictions.
