Air-Fryer Buffalo Chicken-Stuffed Tomatoes

We took all the flavors and ingredients of Buffalo wings—spicy hot sauce, tangy blue cheese and shredded chicken—and stuffed them into a tomato for a filling main dish. Serve these tomatoes with celery sticks and carrot sticks.

  • 3 tablespoons hot sauce

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

  • cup whole-milk plain strained yogurt, such as Greek-style

  • 6 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese, divided

  • 4 large tomatoes

  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

  • Carrot sticks & celery sticks for serving (optional)


  1. Combine hot sauce and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High until the butter is melted, about 30 seconds. Add onion powder and garlic powder; stir to combine. Stir in chicken, then add yogurt and 3 tablespoons blue cheese; stir to combine.

  2. Slice tops off tomatoes; scoop out the seeds and flesh, leaving sides and bottom at least 1/4-inch thick. (Reserve the tops and flesh for another use.)

  3. Divide the chicken mixture among the tomatoes. Coat the basket of an air fryer with cooking spray. Working in batches as necessary, arrange the tomatoes in an even layer in the prepared basket.

  4. Cook at 375°F until the filling is heated through, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with the remaining 3 tablespoons blue cheese and scallions. Serve with a side of carrot sticks and celery sticks and additional hot sauce, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
