Pesto Chicken Stuffed Peppers


6 red, orange, or yellow bell peppers
2 chicken breast, cooked and shredded (You could also use a whole rotisserie chicken.)
1 1⁄2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided and shredded
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 (6.25 oz) jar of pesto


  1. Turn on broiler to high. Place bell peppers under broiler and broil from 5 minutes on each side until skin blisters and begins to turn black.
  2. Remove peppers from oven, set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. In a medium size mixing bowl combine the shredded chicken with 1 cup shredded cheese, the pesto and the quinoa and toss to coat.
  4. Once peppers are cool enough to handle, slice in half and remove membranes and seeds. Add a heaping 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture to each pepper and top with cheese.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
