Chicken-Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers Recipe

Chicken-Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers Recipe

Here's a different take on traditional stuffed peppers. I substituted chicken for the beef and used Cubanelle peppers in place of the green peppers that are usually featured in such a dish. -Ron Burlingame of Canton, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 55 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 Cubanelle peppers or mild banana peppers
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 3/4 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup cooked long grain rice
  • 2 cups meatless spaghetti sauce, divided


  • 1. Cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, salsa, chicken, bread crumbs and rice. Spoon into peppers.
  • 2. Coat a 13x9-in. baking dish and an 8-in.-square baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1 cup spaghetti sauce in larger pan and 1/2 cup sauce in smaller pan. Place peppers over sauce. Spoon remaining spaghetti sauce over peppers.
