This bento box-style lunch is not only tasty but healthy, too. Baby bell peppers stuffed with chicken salad plus fresh cherries and cottage cheese. Refrigerate any remaining chicken mixture for later use.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (12.5 fl oz) can chunk chicken breast, drained and flaked
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, diced
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced, divided
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 3 baby bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 cup fresh cherries

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Mix chicken, jalapeno pepper, 2 green onions, and mayonnaise together in bowl until thoroughly combined. Stuff each baby bell pepper half with chicken mixture.
  2. 2 Mix half of the remaining green onion with cottage cheese; use the other half to garnish stuffed baby bell peppers. Serve baby bell peppers alongside cottage cheese mixture and cherries.

  1. What a refreshing lunch! I made a half batch exactly as written and a half batch with radishes instead of jalapenos. This traveled very well and is actually quite easy to eat with your hands. The chicken salad yielded much more than just for three baby bell peppers (mine were shallow).
