Chicken Parm Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt & pepper
  • 12 oz. boneless chicken breast, cooked and diced
  • 4 bell peppers, halved and seeds removed
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

Directions:

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400º. Then, in a large bowl, combine 2 cups of mozzarella cheese with the Parmesan cheese, garlic, marinara sauce, parsley, and a pinch of red pepper flakes, and season with salt and pepper. Stir until everything is completely mixed. Later, gently fold in your diced chicken.

Step 2

Next, carefully cut the bell peppers in half, removing and discarding the seeds as well. Once the peppers are cut, line them up in a large baking dish, with the insides facing up. Then, spoon the chicken mixture into the opening of the peppers and sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese on top.

Step 3

Then, pour the chicken broth into the bottom of the baking dish (to help steam the peppers) and cover the dish with foil. Bake until peppers are tender, about 50-60 minutes or so. Afterwards, remove the foil and broil the dish for another 2 minutes.

Step 4

Finally, remove the dish from the oven and garnish with parsley (and more parmesan cheese if you want) before serving.
