If you need something to hold you over until dinner (or still need to whip up lunch), these chicken salad stuffed peppers should do the trick. Stuffed with protein-packed (but light) chicken salad, this snack will curb your hunger without weighing you down.

Ingredients:
12 oz cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
¼ cup scallions
¼ cup diced celery
½ cup Smart Beat® Mayonnaise (or your favorite light mayo)
1 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
1 tsp Dijon mustard
⅛ tsp salt
⅛ tsp black pepper
3 large bell peppers, any color, cut in half lengthwise with seeds and membranes removed
cayenne pepper (to taste)

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, scallions, and celery. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chives, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix until ingredients are well-combined. Add to chicken mixture and toss to coat well. Season with cayenne pepper, if desired. Stuff each pepper half with the chicken salad mixture and garnish with extra chives, if desired.

Makes 6 servings
