1/2 cup (110 grams) Mayonnaise - Charlie Foundation Recipe

1Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. Cut the peppers in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Arrange the pepper halves in a baking dish, cut side up.
2Mix the shredded chicken, mayonnaise, cream cheese, and optional ingredients if using. If your carbohydrate allowance allows, add extra salsa verde to this mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
3Fill the peppers with the chicken mixture.
4Generously drizzle the peppers with the olive oil. Top with the shredded cheese. The optional crumbled pork rind topping is highly recommended!
5Bake the peppers for 20-30 minutes or until they are done to your liking.
