A note about serious food allergies

We're unaware of your chicken's nationality or immigration status; if it calls itself "pollo," it may indeed be a rooster from Rome. (And if your chicken calls itself anything, you might want to lie down for awhile.) This chicken is instead Italian-inspired, with marinara, kale, and shallot. Stuffed into fresh green bell peppers, whatever nationality this chicken is, it's also one other thing: delicious.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1” dice. Follow same instructions as diced chicken.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as chicken in Step 3, seasoning with a pinch of salt and pepper and breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  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.

    While peppers roast, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Pesto Crema

    Stem kale and coarsely chop.

    Halve and peel shallot. Slice thinly.

    Combine sour cream and pesto in a mixing bowl. Refrigerate until plating.

    Pat diced chicken dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. If desired, on a separate cutting board, cut larger pieces of chicken to match smaller pieces.

  3. 3

    Start the Filling

    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 browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

    Transfer chicken to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Finish the Filling and Peppers

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, kale, and shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender, 4-6 minutes.

    Stir in chicken, marinara, garlic salt, and 1 Tbsp. water. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner.

    Flip bell pepper halves cut side up. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Transfer filling evenly amongst pepper halves. Top evenly with cheese.

    Roast again until cheese is melted and filling is heated through, 6-8 minutes.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Remove pesto crema from refrigerator and stir to recombine.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping peppers with pesto crema. Bon appétit!
