Lentil, Kale & Chicken Stuffed Peppers with Fairway Caribbean Mango Sauce

Prep Time: 5 minutes; Cook Time: 45 minutes; Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 bell peppers
  • 1 bag lentils
  • 1 small onion
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp Fairway Olive Oil
  • 1-½ cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup shredded kale
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fairway Caribbean Mango Sauce

Directions:

  1. Bring a medium pot filled partially with water (about 3 inches deep) to a boil. Slice the tops off of the bell peppers, keeping the tops and removing the pith and the seeds. Place the peppers in the boiling water, and let them cook for about 5 minutes. Remove and invert peppers on a paper towel.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  3. Cook the lentils in chicken stock. Bring to a boil, and then simmer for about 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large pan over medium-low heat, heat the olive oil and cook the chicken until one side is browned, about 7 minutes. Flip the chicken; add the garlic and onions, and cook until fragrant. Add the kale and cook for about 3 minutes; the kale will begin to shrink in size. Stir in the cooked lentils, diced pepper tops, and 2 tsps of Parmesan cheese; stir until the cheese is melted.
  5. Place the peppers in an oven-proof dish and fill with the lentil and chicken stuffing. Top with remaining cheese and drizzle lightly with a bit of olive oil. Bake for about 20 minutes; open the oven and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the peppers. Continue baking for another 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the peppers are tender. Garnish with parsley and serve. Use Fairway Caribbean Mango Sauce for dipping.
