Stuffed Peppers – Italian Style?

So, the other day i created a pizza topping, rather generic – but delicious. i cut up some chicken very finely – and sauteed it in olive oil (only a tiny bit) and balsamic vinegar, threw in some carmelized onions, some artichoke hearts, and some sundried tomatoes… threw that on a pizza.

OMG AMAZING.

oh, i also threw in garlic, and basil and oregano…

that’s me – always forgetting my spices

anyways, as i was eating it waiting for my pizza dough to become crust, i decided, damn that would be really good in some stuffed peppers

so today i went and got some big ol’ green bells

and modifed my topping some (and forgot any type of spices (oops)) and away we went… so here goes!

Stuffed Peppers – Italian Style (?) — the question mark b/c i don’t know if it is really Italian… it just kinda sounds it?

2 large chicken breasts – diced very small

3 large green bell peppers

1 cup cooked rice – for this i used california brown basmati — which is pretty great, but takes FOREVER to cook

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 cup panko crumbs

1/2 cup artichoke hearts – cut finely

1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes – cut finely (let me interject here and say i cheated and used my mini food processor on these … and the chicken after it was cooked)

2 small onions cut finely (again food processor) and carmelized or browned to perfection

1 tbsp minced garlic — um, i definitely forgot to add the garlic. DUH

one egg, mixed

preheat oven to 400*(F)

after your chicken is cooked – throw it in the food processor to grind it up – you can also use ground chicken, but for this i thought it would be better not to… after all – it is a different texture even if you do grind it up…

mix all this together very well.

hollow out your peppers

spoon mixture into peppers – make sure to stuff well

put 8 oz of water into the bottom of a baking dish and stick your peppers in there

to top them – -you have options — i used a couple tablespoons of fire roasted tomatoes on the top…

you can skip that if you like…

bake for 50 minutes, top with cheese

bake for another 10 – 15 minutes

to serve – i cut mine in half, and put some shredded cheese on each half…

DELICIOUS!!!

I am me. that's really all there is to know. I am still figuring out exactly all that entails, but I think it takes a lifetime to do so...
