Ingredients
  

  • 3 - 4 chicken breasts strips or 1 large chicken breast cut into cubes
  • 1 tbsp Noubess Jerk Seasoning, Salt-Free
  • ½ tsp salt or more to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 onion medium size, and chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes cut into cubes
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 1 - 1 ½ cup marinara sauce
  • 4 peppers mixed colors
  • Mozzarella cheese fresh or packaged - about 6 to 8 oz

Instructions
 

  • Clean and cut the chicken strips into small cubes. Season with Noubess Jerk Seasoning and salt and set aside.
  • Heat oven to 350°F and heat the oil in a large pan.
  • Add the chicken with the seasoning to the pan and let cook over medium heat while occasionally stirring until halfway cooked - about 5 minutes.
  • Add the onion, tomatoes, and parsley. Add lemon juice and stir to combine and continue to cook. Add more seasoning if necessary - additional jerk seasoning or salt, pepper with garlic powder. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Halve the peppers and scoop out the seeds and white membrane. Place cut-side up in a prepared roasting pan, season with salt and pepper, and bake for 20 mins. Remove and let cool.
  • When the peppers are cool to the touch, remove them from the baking dish and place them on a plate. Divide the chicken mixture between the softened peppers. Place them on top of the marinara sauce and top with cheese. Return to the oven for 10 mins. Scatter with chopped parsley or basil leaves before serving.
