To get started with this recipe, we first need to cut our peppers in half and clean out the seeds and the ribs.
We then place them in a skillet with a little water, cover them with a lid or foil, and bake them in a 350F oven for 15 minutes so they can start to soften.
While those are softening in the skillet we can prepare the filling. This consists of diced chicken breast, diced onion, diced green bell pepper, garlic, and salt and pepper. The full printable recipe is down below with all of the measurements.
We cook that in a pot over medium high heat with a little oil until the chicken is cooked through.
Now our peppers are soft so we can start assembling.
HOW WE MAKE THESE SUPER CHEESY
We start with a layer of the meat mixture in the cavity of each pepper, then we put a slice of cheese. This ensures that the cheese is evenly distributed through the chicken!
Now we put another layer of chicken and finally top with another slice of cheese.
These will bake in a 400F oven uncovered for 10 minutes. Just long enough to melt the cheese and make sure they are heated through.
CAN STUFFED PEPPERS BE MADE AHEAD AND FROZEN?
Freezing stuffed peppers really isn’t a good idea because the freezing process really breaks down the peppers then they become mushy. If you want to make them ahead, you could follow all of the steps up until the final bake, and then store them in the refrigerator for a up to 2 days ahead of time. Remove them from the refrigerator and bake them in a 400F oven for 20 minutes or until they are heated through.
WHAT IS A GOOD SIDE DISH FOR STUFFED PEPPERS?
A good side dish for this recipe would be a side salad or a sautéed vegetable like green beans or chopped zucchini.
