Roasted peppers stuffed with ground chicken breast and topped with a tomato cream sauce. Makes a delicious meal with mashed potatoes!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice the tops off of the peppers and remove the ribs and seeds. Set the peppers and the tops aside.
In a skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and chopped onion, sauteing until soft – about 5 minutes. Stir in 2 minced garlic cloves and cook for 1 minute.
Season ground chicken breast with salt and pepper and add it to the skillet to brown. Allow chicken to cook completely – it should take about 10-12 minutes to brown. Stir occasionally.
While chicken is cooking, mix the tomato sauce with the heavy cream and remaining garlic clove and heat it over low heat. Stir in almost all of the fresh basil, reserving some for garnish.
Stir the cooked brown rice and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese into chicken mixture, then add about 1/2 cup of the tomato cream sauce, mixing to coat everything. Turn off heat.
Divide the chicken mixture evenly between the four peppers, stuffing them all the way to the top. Place the stuffed peppers in a dish that allows the peppers to stand upright. Spoon a bit of tomato cream sauce over the tops, and pour the rest of the sauce into the bottom of the pan. Set the tops gently back on the peppers.
Bake for 20 minutes, then cover with foil and bake for 30 more. Serve with more parmesan cheese and basil to garnish, with mashed potatoes on the side.
The texture is absolutely perfect, creamy and rich. You should start with 1/2 cup of cheese and go from there. If you want it cheesier and richer like me, then you can and should add 1/4 cup more. This is one of those recipes I have pinned to my fridge so that I have it close in those lazy single moments haha.
Have 30 minutes? Then you can definitely make this crazy good recipe using everyday ingredients.
