Chicken Mushroom Stuffed Bell Peppers

Print PrintShare with Friends

Prep:

I've been wanting chicken stuffed peppers but can't eat acidic stuff right now (limited tomato). This is quick, light, super easy and tastes great. I think it could be a great make ahead bake later but haven't tried to do it yet, as I just thought this one up today! I really hope you like it as much as we did!
