Ground Chicken Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

13 Feb

It was my husbands birthday this week and I wanted to make something a little healthy, spicy and different from the usual Goan Chicken Xacuti, Beef Stew and Pork Sorpatel as I had made it all for Christmas Day lunch. I am sharing with you today my 3 different versions of the final Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe.

You can also use this recipe for making Chicken Patties if you do not eat beef.

Directions for Stuffed Bell Peppers:

Heat oven to 350F.

Cut thin slice from stem end of each cleaned bell pepper to remove top of pepper. Remove the seeds and membranes.

Apply little salt to the bell peppers on the inside. Place them in a microwaveable dish add 1/4 cup water to the bottom of the dish and microwave for 45 to 60 seconds to soften the peppers a little.

Pour out any liquid from the inside of the bell peppers. Next spoon in the ground chicken in each pepper. If you want you can add the topping of your choice like I did and then baked for 30-35 minutes.


Serve and enjoy while it is still hot.

    Yum! I haven’t made stuffed peppers in a long time. Thanks for the ideas, I’ve never heard of mashed potatoes on top, sounds great!

    Nandini, Love the stuffed peppers recipe. I had not thought of microwaving the peppers first. That is a great idea!

    • Nandini February 14, 2015 at 8:14 am #

      Thanks Much Sandhya, yes it helps to soften the peppers else they are still crunchy.

    Great addition and use of the xacuti masala in your stuffed peppers Nandini. I like the idea of ground chicken too as opposed to ground beef. I’ll be making these soon πŸ™‚

    • Nandini February 14, 2015 at 8:22 am #

      Thank You Loretta. Have to find creative and tasty ways to use Xacuti :-). My husband avoids beef as much as he can so I had to make it with chicken. Do let me know how it goes.
