Pepper and Pepperjack Stuffed Chicken. 3 Ingredients to a delicious and low-carb dinner! Weight loss surgery approved!

Are you ready for a super simple dinner with more flavor than you worked for??

Here’s a hint on how easy this meal is – every single ingredient is in the name.

Peppers. Pepper Jack. Chicken.

You see where I’m going with this, don’t you?!

I sliced chicken in half (to make it thin for cooking sake and for a better bariatric portion) and put a layer of low-fat Pepper Jack cheese and a few slices of green bell pepper inside. Baked it for 30 minutes and served it to my grateful husband. So little work for so much satisfaction. The smaller portion of chicken makes it easier to keep bite sizes small which you want to do if you’ve had Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass or Gastric Lapband® surgery.

Keep bite sizes the size of a black bean and aim for 20 minute meals. Use the phone app Eat Slower to help you if you have a tendency to speed through meals!
