Parmesan Crusted Chicken and Stuffed Baked Tomatoes

Tuna Salad
Source: Unknown

2 cans Tuna (I use solid white Albacore)
2 hard boiled eggs
1 T more or less of Fat Free Mayo

Mix all together and refrigerate. You can also add in some thawed frozen peas.

Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Source: I found it on a blog over a year ago and forgot to copy the source, I’m still looking for it

1 packet of dry Italian dressing seasonings
½ cup Grated Parmesan
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Pre-heat oven to 375F. Mix seasonings and cheese together. Wet chicken under water and dredge in parmesan mixture. Place in a greased baking dish and put chicken in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until done.

For an added bonus I stuffed my chicken with a little feta and sun dried tomatoes, it defiantly took this dish to the next level.
Stuffed Baked Tomatoes

4 plum tomatoes, halves lengthwise
1/3 cup shredded part-skimmed mozzarella cheese
¼ cup roughly chopped fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat oven to 400F.

Scoop out the middle of each tomato half with melon baller and roughly chop the scooped pulp. Combine tomato pulp, mozzarella, basil, parmesan, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Place tomatoes, cut side up, on a baking sheet. Spoon in tomato mixture and bake until cheese is melted and lightly browned, about 10 minutes, serve warm.
