  3. Divide chicken mixture among pepper halves. Carefully add ½ cup hot water to bottom of baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine melted butter and bread crumbs; toss to coat well.
  4. Remove foil from peppers. Sprinkle peppers with buttered bread crumbs. Continue baking 15 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.

Makes 6 servings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new stuffed pepper recipe! We loved how easy this was to make with ingredients we already had on hand including Magic Chicken which is always ready to go in our freezer. Super easy to assemble and delicious flavor. This made a dinner and a lunch for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flavorful and easy! So easy to prepare and it had great flavor. I used Magic Chicken for my cooked chicken so it had twice the flavor. I had a little leftover that wouldn't fit in my peppers, so I baked in a small at the same time. I plan to use as a dip with crackers! We will definitely make this again
