New Recipe to Try – Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Bell Peppers
My daughter-in-law came up with a new recipe, and she really liked it. I have added it to the menu for May and will definitely be trying it. She started with a rotisserie chicken and the pictured ingredients. She prepared the rice and did a quick stir-fry of the chicken and vegetables, adding in the Buffalo Sauce to taste. Then she layered everything in a hollowed bell pepper – rice, chicken/vegetables, cheese. She baked it just long enough to melt the cheese, and then drizzled more of the Buffalo Sauce on top of it.
