All the flavor of pizza in a stuffed pepper!

Ingredients

    2 tsp. avocado oil

    1/4 c. onion

    1/2 lbs. ground chicken

    2 tsp. Italian seasoning

    3/4 c. tomato sauce

    2 tbsp. parmesan cheese

    2 med. bell pepper, any color

    4 tbsp. mozzarella cheese

Directions

Heat avocado oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add diced onions; saute for 3-5 minutes, until onions are translucent. Add ground chicken and brown, breaking it up as it cooks. Add Italian seasoning just before chicken is cooked through. Stir in tomato sauce; let simmer for 5-10 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, and stir in grated parmesan cheese.

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease a baking dish.

Cut tops off bell peppers, and remove insides. Cut peppers in half, and arrange the halves in the baking dish. Divide the chicken mixture among the pepper halves. Bake for 25 minutes.

Remove baking dish from oven. Top each pepper half with one tablespoon of shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, until cheese is melted.
