Chicken Stuffed Peppers: 13 Recipes to Try

Move over ground beef! Here are 13 Chicken Stuffed Pepper Recipes that you’ve got to try!

Over the past couple of years I’ve shared several stuffed pepper recipes on this site. And these recipes have become among the most popular. Especially two chicken stuffed pepper recipes.

The popularity of stuffed peppers generally makes sense to me. They’re such a comforting dinner and everyone loves them. I imagine that even people who don’t like peppers happily scoop out and devour the filling.

The popularity of my two chicken bell pepper recipes is, I think, because they’re tasty. But the’re also quicker to make than the traditional version. Why? For these, the filling is not pre-cooked in any way. The peppers are cut in half so that everything cooks faster. You stuff the filling loosely into the pepper halves and then bake. The filling cooks through in the time it takes the peppers to soften. Because they’re so quick, these recipes work for any weeknight dinner.

The first recipe is for peppers stuffed with chicken and cheddar cheese. As mentioned, the filling is not pre-cooked. It includes cheddar cheese and chicken. They’re topped with panko crumbs. While the peppers bake and soften, the cheese melts, the chicken cooks through and the breadcrumbs get toasty and crunchy.

The second recipe is for peppers stuffed with an easy buffalo chicken filling. This one is similar to the recipe above in the way the peppers are cut and how the filling is cooked. But the filling contains finely chopped celery, carrot, ranch dressing and buffalo sauce (such as Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce Sauce). You mix together the ingredients, pile it into the pepper halves and bake until cooked through. Easy and so tasty.

Because the above peppers have been so popular on my site, I thought I’d point you to some more stuffed pepper recipes that have chicken in the fillings.
