Ingredients

  • 3 bell peppers

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion white or yellow

  • 2 small jalapenos seeds and stems removed (3 TBSP diced)

  • 1 heaping cup chopped cooked chicken*

  • 4 oz grated cheese (I used pepper jack + cheddar)

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE TOPPINGS:
  • chopped green onion

  • ranch or blue cheese dressing

  • crumbled blue cheese

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cook chicken via your preferred method if you’re not using up leftover chicken from a previous meal or meal prep-a-thon. See notes for tips and options!
  • Next slice the top off of one of the peppers (horizontally like a lid) and chop the ring of bell pepper around the stem so you have 1/3-1/2 cup of diced bell pepper. Set aside.
  • Slice each remaining bell pepper in half.
  • Hollow out each pepper, removing stem, seeds, etc…
  • Lay pepper halves on a baking sheet and cook for 8-10 minutes until al-tente or for 10-15 minutes for softer peppers.
  • While the peppers cook, sauté your onion, jalapeños and bell pepper until tender.
  • Add your chicken along with roughly 75% of the cheese, hot sauce, and melted butter.
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Stuff your peppers to the brim with filling and top with remaining cheese.
  • Return peppers to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes until hot and melty.

Notes

  • This recipe is a fabulous use for leftover or rotisserie chicken! If making it fresh (or in advance to use in speedy weeknight dinners) feel free to use your favorite cooking method. Grilled, poached, pressure cooked, slow cooked, baked… anything goes!
  • I cooked up two frozen chicken thighs and had the perfect amount of chicken for this recipe! They were speedily cooked in pressure cooker with zero thawing needed. Super awesome, right?!
