Chicken-Stuffed Bell Peppers


Chicken-Stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed peppers are usually made with a sausage or ground beef mixture. But, these Chicken-Stuffed Bell Peppers are another tasty and healthy version. Top with onions and your favorite marinara sauce and you have a great family recipe for stuffed peppers.


Tip: Cut a thin slice from the bottoms of the peppers to keep them from rolling in the dish.

  • 4 large green, red or orange peppers
  • 2 tablespoons Crisco vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)

I am Eliminating the marinara sauce, adding a little rice cooked with Chicken bouillon for added flavor, seasoning with garlic pepper, "little"Himalayan salt be careful do not over salt with that. I also am going to make one bell pepper with marinara sauce and 1 bell pepper with a home made cheese sauce to see which one I prefer. I will post my choice and pictures too.

This is great! We can wait to see what you come up with. Thanks for sharing your cooking with us. -Editor, RecipeLion

Stuffed peppers are a great quick dinner go-to. I've never had them with chicken before, so I'm looking forward to trying this version.

I will try. It sounds good to me.

You might want to change the "3/5 Prego" to a more usable 2/3 cup Prego as it is in the original Campbell's recipe. Grrr.
