Chicken-Stuffed Green Peppers

 Chicken-Stuffed Green Peppers
Both for a family meal and for entertaining, this is a dish I serve frequently. It's very appealing to the eye, and people like the wild rice and the peppers. What I learned about cooking came from an expert - my husband! He's the real chef in the family. We have a 12-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son. -Shelley Armstrong, Buffalo Center, Iowa
