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
