Caprese Chicken Stuffed Peppers


The only way to stuff yourself.
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2½ c. shredded mozzarella, divided

  • ⅓ c. shredded fresh basil, plus more for garnish
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 bell peppers, halved (seeds removed)
  • ½ c. low-sodium chicken broth
  • Balsamic glaze, for drizzling
  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add chicken and season with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook until chicken is golden and no longer pink, 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes, then dice.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together cherry tomatoes, cooked chicken, 1½ cups mozzarella, ricotta, basil, and garlic and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stuff tomato mixture into peppers and sprinkle tops with remaining 1 cup mozzarella. Pour chicken broth into baking dish (to help the peppers steam) and cover with foil.
  4. Bake until peppers are tender and cheese melty, 40 to 45 minutes.
