Chicken Stuffed Peppers Recipe:
I Had To!!!


Yummy Chicken Stuffed Pepper!!

I simply had to make this chicken stuffed peppers recipe!

I needed some color in my life because the winter was just going on too long….

And it was much too cold for me.

When I saw the beautiful red peppers in the store where I was shopping, I got an inspiration! I put them in my cart, raced to the checkout, and went home to my kitchen. This is what I made.

Regular readers will know that I love bright colors when I serve my meals. (Whenever I can, of course). This gorgeous recipe is no exception!
