Orzo and Chicken Stuffed Peppers

"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."

  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.

  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.

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.

This was very good. I took the advice of a couple of other reviewers. First advice I took was to cook the pepper a bit first if you like a softer pepper. Second, I made the marsala sauce by revi...

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