Description

Roasted peppers stuffed with ground chicken breast and topped with a tomato cream sauce. Makes a delicious meal with mashed potatoes!

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Bell Peppers
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • ½ whole Onion, Chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced, Divided
  • 1 pound Ground Chicken Breast (or Turkey, Beef, Lamb, Pork)
  • 29 ounces, fluid Can Of Tomato Sauce (I Used RedPack)
  • ⅓ cups Heavy Cream
  • ⅓ cups Chopped Fresh Basil
  • 1-½ cup Cooked Brown Rice
  • ¾ cups Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt And Pepper

Preparation

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.

these were great! I added in spicy sausage and jalapenos though to give the meat a little more flavor!

YUM! Excellent! Made with lean beef and half & half because that is what I had on hand. Will make again and again, especially if my pepper plants keep producing.
