We love peppers and combined with the chicken, this was a delicious taste....

I made these for my husband and mother-in-law since I don't eat meat myself. They both said they were just okay.

This was very good. I used miracle whip in place of the Mayo.

At first glance, I thought this was for a cold salad dish, and thought "how delightful." Then when I saw that it was an oven baked meal, I realized we actually had two recipes in one idea. I made the salad and served it in fresh, crisp raw red peppers, and loved it. Then, tried it with the peppers and salad baked, and actually it is a toss up which is better.

Refreshing, delicious & different. Didn't add the chips. Served w/polenta and my own homemade potato salad. Husband raved!
