Total Time:45 minutes
2 red bell peppers, sliced in half lengthwise
2 cups shredded chicken (I used rotisserie)
1 cup marinara of choice (I used Rao’s)
2/3 cup shredded cheese blend (I used an italian pizza blend, you could also use mozzarella and parmesan)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease an 8 x 11 casserole dish.
Slice peppers in half lengthwise and remove seeds and stem. Place in casserole dish.
In a separate bowl, combine chicken, marinara, salt, and pepper and toss to coat.
Divide chicken mixture among bell pepper halves, then top with cheese and Italian seasoning. Add a little bit of water to the base of the casserole dish, just enough to cover the bottom of the dish. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes, option to broil last few minutes to get the cheese nice and golden.
Garnish with parsley and red pepper flakes and serve with a big salad.
