Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Katie was one of the very first bloggers that I ever met in real life. She was instantly welcoming and excited to meet me. During that first encounter she even invited me to a party at her house.

Since then, Katie and I have spent a lot of time together both online and in person. She’s enthusiastic about food, blogging and life. And she’s always been willing to answer my blogging questions and help me out in innumerable ways.

Here I am at a local media event with Katie (middle) and another blogger, Kristin (left) from Yellow Bliss Road.

Part of why I love blogging is because of the people I’ve gotten to know along the way. And Katie is one of the people who’s made the last 3 years online a sunny and happy place. Thanks, my friend. And good luck to you, Mr. SewWoodsy and that tiny little one. I can’t wait to meet him!

About the Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers Recipe
When I first started organizing Katie’s Virtual Baby Shower with Julie from The Little Kitchen, I knew I wanted to make stuffed peppers because I know how much Katie loves them.

Proof of Katie’s stuffed pepper love:

Katie’s Southwestern Chicken and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Katie’s Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Peppers

Katie’s Stuffed Peppers with Ground Beef and Rice).

My only question was what to stuff the peppers with.

I turned to one of her other favorite things: Buffalo Chicken!! I’m telling you, this gal is crazy for buffalo chicken.

Proof of Katie’s buffalo chicken love:

Katie’s Buffalo Chicken Salad Sandwich

Katie’s Buffalo Chicken Bacon Cheese Fries (oh man!)

Katie’s Buffalo Chicken Fondue.

This Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Pepper Recipe is super-quick and super-easy to make. You mixed together chopped up uncooked chicken breast, shredded cheese, shredded carrots and thinly sliced celery with buffalo sauce and ranch dressing (do you SEE all those buffalo chicken flavors are in there?). Then you loosely stuff the mixture into peppers and bake until cooked through, 30 minutes. Really easy. Really tasty. I know Katie’s going to love these.

I hope you enjoy this stuffed peppers recipe, too!


Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Pepper Recipe

The filling for these stuffed peppers takes only minutes to make. Then the stuffed peppers go into the oven to bake. Dinner is served!


  • 1 lb. raw chicken breast, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 tsp. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 2 ribs celery, thinly sliced

  • 2 Tbsp. ranch dressing
  • 4 bell peppers, each cut in half from stem to base, seeds removed


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a medium bowl toss the chicken with the flour and salt. Add the carrots, celery, 1/2 cup of the cheese, the wing sauce and the ranch dressing.

    Just made these and they’re fantastic! Just made one small tweak- NO ranch!! As a local Buffalonian, ranch is a NO NO! I substituted the ranch with crumbly blue cheese (you could also use liquid but i prefer crumbly) and Franks Red Hot because its not Buffalo Chicken if its not Franks! This was one of the best meals i’ve ever made! Will definitely share with others :)

      Jessica, I hear you on the ranch but sadly I’m just not a blue cheese dressing fan. I’m delighted it worked with your tweak though!

    Made these for dinner the other day and they are fantastic!  A definite keeper…  Thanks for sharing!

      That’s great news, Gayle. So happy you liked them and thanks for letting me know!

    I made these tonight and they were amazing!!

    I made these for dinner last night. They were perfect! The flavors were great. My husband thought the peppers were a bit al dente. But I think I preferred them to the way stuffed peppers are sometimes sort of more mushy. Thanks so much for this recipe. I’ll make it again for sure!

    • Christine Pittman — March 20, 2014 @ 1:51 pm (#)

      Cheryl, I am so so happy that you make my recipe and that you like it. My husband also thought the peppers were al dente and I also disagreed. Maybe there are two kinds of people in the world, those who like al dente peppers and those who don’t!

    Thank you so much for everything you did to make this baby shower for Katie happen! These peppers sound awesome! (And I love how you pre-prove she’s going to love them, too!)

    I just made these for dinner, and my husband immediately asked if I could make them again next week. They are SO delicious! Followed your recipe exactly as is and wouldn’t change a single thing about it. The flavors are perfect! Also, just in case anyone is wondering, this makes for a very healthy dinner (only
    120 calories and 10 grams of protein per stuffed pepper half!) Thanks so much for sharing!

    Oh my! These look like they are bursting with flavor!!!!!!! Thanks for organizing this for Katie!!!

    This recipe looks so good! One of my favorite meals ever is buffalo chicken. What a perfect dish for Katie & her shower. I had no idea she loved stuffed peppers so much :) It was so nice to meet you through Katie as well! I’ll have to dig around for your kale recipes while I’m here.

    YUM!! This looks delish!
    My hubby will die for these stuffed peppers. I am “pinning” to make next week.
    Thank you for organizing this virtual baby shower for Katie! (I’m planning all my meals in one place!!)

    Oh Christine, you brought tears to my eyes, friend. Thank you for organizing this and thank you for being such an amazing friend! I’m so glad we met through blogging. And these peppers! Ahhh I die. I would never have thought to put raw chicken in a “stuffed pepper”. MUST TRY ASAP!
