Paleo Buffalo Ranch Chicken Stuffed Peppers

/

Stuffed peppers isn't a dish we have too often. As a kid I wasn't a fan of the texture of the cooked peppers and found the dish to always be dry and overly heavy with rice. I decided to try this Paleo version to see if the lack of rice and few ingredients improved this classic dish.

Ingredients:
for the chicken:
    • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • 1 onion, sliced 
    • 1 tsp. parsley
    • 1 tsp. oregano
    • 1 tsp. dried chives
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1 tsp. onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp. salt 
    • 1/2 tsp. pepper 
    • 4 pats butter 
for the stuffed peppers:
    • 5 bell peppers
    • 1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray.
2. Combine the herbs and spices together in a small bowl. Arrange the chicken and onion on the baking sheet and sprinkle the herb mixture on top. Place a pat of butter on top of each chicken breast.
3. Bake for 25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
4. While the chicken is cooking, slice the tops off each of the bell peppers and remove the seeds.
5. Add the butter to a small saucepan and melt over medium heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the hot sauce.
6. Remove the chicken from the oven and allow to cool enough to handle. Place the chicken, onion and any juices from cooking into a large bowl. Shred the chicken breasts, then stir in the hot sauce until the chicken is fully coated.
7. Place the peppers into a 9x13 baking dish and fill each pepper with the chicken mixture. Bake for 40 minutes or until the peppers are tender enough for your tastes.



These were pretty tasty! The recipe calls to serve them with guacamole on top, which I did when I had them for lunch that week. I probably could have cooked the bell peppers less since they were going to be reheated in the microwave but otherwise this was good!
