INGREDIENTS:


  • 4 bell peppers, seeds and cores removed
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 c. shredded rotisserie chicken

  • Ranch dressing, for drizzling

DIRECTIONS:


 

  • Preheat oven to 400°. Place bell peppers cut side-up on a large baking sheet and drizzle all over with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more.
