Number of Servings: 8


    1 1/2 cups brown rice (pre-made ahead of time-I used brown minute rice)

    1 pound lean ground chicken (can sub. beef/turkey but calculations will change)

    2 cloves garlic, minced

    1 onion, chopped

    4 green, red, or yellow bell peppers

    16 ounces tomato sauce (I used Prego with extra veggies)

    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

    salt and ground black pepper to taste (optional)

    1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

    2 tsp grated Parmesan cheese


Great with a salad and light dressing on the side!


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.Prepare your brown rice & set aside.
3.Cook and stir chicken, garlic,, mushrooms & onion in a skillet over medium heat until meat is evenly browned and onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
4.Remove and discard the tops, seeds, and membranes of the green, red, and yellow bell peppers. Cut in half. Arrange peppers in a baking dish with the hollowed sides facing upward.
5.Mix the browned chicken, cooked rice, 8oz tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Spoon an equal amount of the mixture into each hollowed pepper. Mix the remaining tomato sauce and Italian seasoning in a bowl, and pour over the stuffed peppers.
6.Bake in the preheated oven, basting with sauce every 15 minutes, until the peppers are tender, about 1 hour. Sprinkle the peppers with grated Parmesan cheese after baking.
