Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I remember eating stuffed peppers as a child. I also remember the family dog jumping up on a chair and eating someones stuffed pepper. The dog sure thought they were good, I never got excited about them, they were just okay.

The peppers I grew up with were the "traditional" stuffed peppers. But these stuffed peppers are not traditional and worth getting excited about. They are spicy, cheesy and delicious.

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers


  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 3 teaspoon all purpose flour
  • 2 carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 1 large piece of celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoon light ranch dressing
  • 4 bell peppers, any color


  1. Preheat oven to 400ยบ F.
  2. Cut the peppers in half and remove the stem and seeds. Place the pepper halves on a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the raw chicken and the flour.
  4. Add in the carrots, celery, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, hot sauce and ranch dressing. Mix well.
  5. Divide the chicken mixture evenly between the peppers.
