Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F
  • Slice the 2 colored bell peppers in half lengthwise and clean out any ribs and seeds. Place them in an oven safe skillet or casserole dish with ¼ cup water. Cover with a lid or foil and bake in the oven for 15 minutes to soften. Remove from the oven for assembling.
  • While the peppers are steaming, make your filling.
    Heat the oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add in the diced chicken, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through. About 8 minutes. Taste for seasoning and add more salt to taste. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Assembling the stuffed peppers

  • Increase the heat of the oven to 400F
  • Place a large spoonful of the chicken mixture into the cavity of each pepper, followed by a slice of cheese. Top the peppers with the remaining chicken mixture, stuffing in as much as you can. Top with another slice of cheese.
  • Bake in the oven on the center rack for 10 minutes to melt the cheese. Serve.

Notes

  • 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 baking, 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.
