Chicken Cheese Steak Stuffed Peppers

Chicken Cheese Steak Stuffed Peppers

By: Trainer Julie

Eating healthy is hard when there is food like cheese steaks in the world, but recipes like this one make eating healthy a little easier.  This recipe is low carb and full of protein. The cheese steak roll is replaced by a bell pepper.  If you prefer beef instead of chicken, it is easily substitutable.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ lbs sliced chicken
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic vinaigrette dressing
  • 4 bell peppers, cut in half with seeds removed
  • 4 slices provolone cheese, reduced fat

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft. Add the garlic and the chicken and cook until browned. Stir in the salt, cayenne, and Balsamic.
  3. Cut the bell peppers in half lengthwise and remove the core and seeds. Fill the peppers with the chicken mixture and lay in a baking dish. Add a few tablespoons water to the bottom of the dish and cover tightly with foil. Bake for 35 minutes.
  4. Remove the cover and top each bell pepper half with a half slice of provolone. Put back in the oven uncovered, and bake until cheese is browned and bubbly, 5-10 more minutes.

Get creative and try substituting other carb-heavy items with bell peppers. I also really enjoy taco stuffed peppers or chicken parm stuffed peppers!
