Chicken Stuffed Peppers

An alternative to beef and rice stuffed peppers and bonus! I used SupahFood orange peppers!

These came out even better than I thought they would. They’re very colorful and flavorful.

Chicken Stuffed Peppers

6 orange bell peppers, tops removed and chopped, peppers seeded
1 pound 99% lean ground chicken breast
1/2 onion, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
1 summer squash, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup fat free ricotta cheese
salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley, basil, red pepper flake to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place peppers in a baking dish and bake 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a skillet over medium heat cook onion, pepper tops, zucchini, and squash until tender. Mix in the tomatoes, ground chicken, and seasonings. Cook until chicken is cooked through. Add ricotta and mix. Stuff the peppers with the skillet mixture.

Return peppers to the oven, and continue cooking 15 minutes.
