Description

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers – an easy, delicious and flavorful weeknight dinner option that comes together so quickly! 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 bell peppers, halved
  • 3 cups shredded chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup buffalo sauce
  • (optional) 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt or plain/unsweetened dairy-free yogurt
  • 1/2 cup celery, sliced
  • 23 green onions, sliced
  • (optional) 1/3 cup mozzarella, shredded (use dairy-free if you want)
  • Toppings: ranch dressing, sliced green onions and/or blue cheese crumbles

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Prepare bell peppers by slicing them in half, lengthwise. Rub them all over with a little bit of olive oil. Place them in a baking sheet and bake 15-20 minutes or until soft, but firm. 
  3. Meanwhile, place the shredded chicken in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with onion powder, garlic powder, kosher salt and ground black pepper.  Stir to combine. 
  4. Add buffalo sauce, greek yogurt (if using), celery, green onions and shredded mozzarella (if using). Stir to combine. 
  5. Scoop the chicken mixture and fill each of the bell pepper halves. 
  6. Return pan to oven and let cook another 15 minutes or until chicken is warm through.
  7. Serve with ranch dressing and blue cheese crumbles. 

Notes

  • Buffalo Sauce: we love our homemade buffalo sauce, but feel free to use any store bought kind you want! 
  • Paleo/Whole30: to make these paleo/Whole30 simply ensure you are using a compliant buffalo sauce, omit any kind of yogurt and cheese.  Top with a compatible ranch dressing (like this one). 
  • Make Ahead: follow steps through Step 5 and then cover with foil and place in the fridge.  Keep covered and place in the oven 30-35 minutes at 350 or until warmed through.
