Parmesan Chicken Stuffed Peppers Recipe


3 c. shredded mozzarella, divided

1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan, plus more for serving

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 c. marinara

1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish

Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

12 oz. fresh or frozen breaded chicken, cooked according to the package

4 bell peppers, halved and seeds removed 1/2 c.


Preheat the oven to 400º. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic, marinara, parsley, and red pepper flakes, and season with salt and pepper. Stir until combined, then gently fold in chicken.

Spoon mixture into halved bell peppers and sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella.

Pour chicken broth into the baking dish (to help the peppers steam) and cover with foil.

Bake until peppers are tender, 55 minutes to 1 hour. Uncover and broil for 2 minutes.
