Chicken and Veggie Stuffed Peppers

This is a discovery of recipe that is fairly easy to make. About 20 minutes of prep time and 30 minutes to cook. They turned out really yummy.


  • 4 peppers, or how ever many you need to prepare. Tops removed, seeded. (Color doesn’t matter)
  • 1 lb of ground chicken.
  • 2 tbs of olive oil
  • 1/2 onion chopped (I used red onion)
  • 1 cup of sliced mushrooms
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup of fresh spinach (I used a little more than a cup)
  • 1 tbs of tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp of worcestershire sauce
  • Italian Seasoning (to taste)
  • Garlic powder (to taste)
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Wrap the bell peppers in aluminum foil, and place in a baking dish.
  • Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven.
  • Remove from heat. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the turkey until evenly brown. 
  • Set aside.
  • Heat oil in the skillet, and cook onion, mushrooms, zucchini, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, and spinach until tender.
  • Return turkey to the skillet.
  • Mix in the tomatoes and tomato paste, and season with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Stuff the green peppers with the skillet mixture.
  • Return peppers to the oven, and continue cooking 15 minutes.

For extra taste, and for the kids, sprinkle a little Mozzarella or Parmesan cheese on top before placing the stuffed peppers back in the oven! Some people even add rice to their stuffin’ mix. I chose not to do that as I wanted to remain as clean as possible.
