  1. 1

    Roast the Peppers

    Stem and halve bell peppers. Remove seeds and ribs. Place bell peppers on prepared baking sheet, cut side down, and spray with cooking spray. Roast in hot oven until tender, 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven. While peppers roast, prepare the ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem kale and coarsely chop. Halve and peel shallot. Slice thinly. Combine sour cream and pesto in a mixing bowl. Set aside and refrigerate until ready to use.

    Cook the Chicken

    Pat diced chicken dry, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. If desired, halve large pieces to roughly match smaller pieces. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add diced chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken browns and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Cook Vegetables and Fill Peppers

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, kale, and shallot. Stir occasionally until tender, 4-6 minutes. CHECK TIMING Add chicken, marinara, garlic salt, and 1 Tbsp. water to hot pan. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner. Carefully transfer filling evenly amongst roasted bell pepper halves. Wipe pan clean and reserve. Be careful! Baking sheet will be hot. Top stuffed peppers with cheese. Roast peppers in hot oven until cheese is melted and filling is heated through, 6-8 minutes. CHECK TIMING
