Stuffed green bell peppers from Mom's recipe..a great Sunday meal!

Note: You can use ground beef instead of ground turkey, but the nutritional facts will be different--the facts posted are for turkey. I find they taste just as good with the turkey.

Balsamic Grilled Chicken Breast
Very Good 4.7/5
(75 ratings)

The marinade in this recipe can be easily altered to suit your taste. Try adding a clove or two of minced garlic and a sprinkle of fresh rosemary to finish. It pairs nicely with roasted potatoes, a green side salad and fresh fruit.
