Chicken Salad-Stuffed Peppers

We love this recipe because it combines the fresh flavor of summer bell peppers and chicken salad. — Mary Marlowe Leverette, Columbia, South Carolina

    I also make this with tuna instead of chicken. This has become one of our regular dinner choices.

    Thanks Beema, I too thought it sounded great as a cold salad and was wondering if that would work. Glad to hear it does.

    Very nice recipe. If you coat the inside of the peppers with a little olive oil before stuffing, the peppers will cut like warm butter. Make sure you use Hellmann's mayo and not miracle whip. Colored peppers are expensive and you could ruin them with a cheap product like MW.

    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.
