Italian Style Stuffed Peppers

This is another one of our favorite and transportable lunch recipes: Italian-style chicken salad stuffed peppers. This is another one that’s super easy to adjust to your tastes. Swap out the sundried tomatoes and basil for some cumin and chiles for a Mexican flair, or trade out the chicken for tuna or salmon. The meal lasts well for a few days, so make a big batch, and leave it in your fridge for a quick and delicious bite!


What You’ll Need:

  • 1.5 pounds of cooked chicken (roasted, grilled, baked, whatever).
  • 1/4 cup of red onion
  • 1/2 cup of diced mixed bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup of sundried tomatoes (diced)
  • 3-4 basil leaves, diced
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Whole30 approved mayo (make your own or scoop some up; we love Primal Mayo from @ThriveMKT)
  • Drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • Juice from one small lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • One whole bell pepper for serving

What I Did: 

  1. Combine all of your ingredients in a bowl (except the whole bell pepper) until thoroughly incorporated.
  2. Pour the deliciousness into a bell pepper.
  3. Chow down taco style! Nom!

That’s it! So easy and so delicious. This will make your co-workers’ jaws drop when they see you unpack one of these babies in the teacher workroom.
