Orzo and Chicken Stuffed Peppers

Recipe by  

"This dish looks beautiful and tastes like you cooked all day. Any combination of green, yellow, and red peppers works well; I use all three for color. You can also use low-sodium chicken broth and Smart Balance® spread."

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Spray inside of green, red, and yellow bell pepper halves with cooking spray; place on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake peppers in the preheated oven until slightly tender, about 10 minutes.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon butter and 2 tablespoons oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir 3 green onions and garlic until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add chicken, black pepper, and cumin; cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, 4 to 5 minutes. Add orzo and chicken broth; simmer until orzo is cooked through but firm to the bite and broth is absorbed, about 11 minutes. Spoon chicken-orzo mixture into the bell peppers; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 7 minutes.
  6. Heat 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter in skillet; Cook and stir portobello mushrooms and remaining green onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. Spoon about 2 tablespoons mushroom mixture onto each stuffed bell pepper.

These were delish! My kids and husband loved them. I gave 4 stars because I added red pepper flakes to the recipe to make it a little spicy.

It was pretty dry. If one were to reduce; half cup marsala wine mixed with a cup of chicken broth, a pinch of corn starch, a pinch of chicken boullion and add a cup of heavy cream then drizzle over the bell peppers it would give it more depth as well as take its flavor profile to a greater height!

We really liked this. I gave it 4 stars because the peppers were undercooked. I would advise boiling the peppers for 5 minutes instead of baking them for 10.

I used a different pasta, but it still turned out fine. My fiance liked it.

Not a fan of stuffed peppers, I was looking for something different than the usual beef/rice/tomato sauce version when I found this. A-MAZING!!!! My husband, who is not particularly a fan of veggies, has claimed this to be in his top ten list of dinner selections now. The only thing I would change is the amount of green onions; I increased from two to four and one to two, along with the mushrooms...2 is not nearly enough! But that could be because I love them. All in all...I was SOOO happy with these! I can't wait to make them again!

There were really good! This was my first time making stuffed peppers because they always seemed so complicated. I was really pleased with the results. My filling seemed to be lacking something, though. I took the advice of other posters and boiled the peppers first.
