Morningstar Chik'n with Peppers

I had never tried any of the Morningstar products before, but my sister kept insisting that the Chik'n Patties were really good. I decided to give them a shot and I was impressed. It almost tastes like a fried chicken patty (tastes better when heated in the oven). The first few patties I tried, I made into a sandwich with mustard on a whole wheat bun. But I decided to mix it up, and use some frozen peppers which I have been eating a lot of lately. It tasted good and is pretty filling so I'll definitely be making it again.

1 clove Garlic, minced
1 cup Red & Green Peppers, sliced (I used frozen)
1/4 cup canned Black Beans, drained
1/4 cup Chicken Stock (or vegetable stock)
1 Morningstar Chik'n Patty
1 dollop Dijon Mustard (or whichever mustard you prefer)

Preheat oven to 375. When it's ready, put Chik'n Patty in, cooking for 16 minutes, flipping once. In the meantime, heat skillet to medium and spray with cooking spray, when it's heated, add peppers and garlic. Sauté for a couple minutes then add chicken stock and black beans. Continue to cook until peppers are cooked through and liquid has evaporated. Place pepper mix on a plate, then top with Chik'n Patty. Spoon dijon onto patty for extra flavor. Then enjoy!
