  • 3 bell peppers, sliced in half, remove seeds
  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium white onion , peel and slice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • cup shredded mozzarella, for the top - you can also use provolone cheese

Cheese Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon AP flour, all purpose
  • ½ cup 2% milk
  • ¼ cup chicken stock, extra to deglaze the pan
  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella
  • 4 ounces Velveeta cheese, cube one of the mini blocks


  • 1 baking tray
  • 1 saucepan
  • 1 large non-stick pan


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Grab a baking tray and gently spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Slice the bell peppers in half and remove the seeds.
  • Place the bell peppers on the tray and cook them for 5-10 minutes. This will allow them to slightly soften.
  • Remove the peppers from the oven and set them aside.
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the butter and ap flour to form a roux.
  • Once the roux begins to bubble, slowly add the milk. Whisk well.
  • Next, add the chicken stock and stir well.
  • Then, reduce the heat to medium and add the shredded mozzarella and cubed Velveeta cheese. Let the cheese melt and whisk frequently to prevent burning.
  • If the sauce gets too tight, reduce the heat further and add a touch more chicken stock to help loosen it. Whisk well and set aside.
  • Next, grab a large non-stick pan. Add olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Then, add the ground chicken. Using a spatula be sure to break it up into small pieces.
  • Once it begins to brown, add salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and sliced onion.
  • Deglaze the pan with a touch of chicken stock. Be sure to scrape up any crispy bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Once the onions begin to soften and brown, add the cheese sauce.
  • Toss together until everything is well combined.
  • Next, you will fill the bell peppers with the cheesy chicken and onion mixture.
  • Top with extra shredded mozzarella or you can use sliced provolone. Half of a slice per pepper will work.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Serve with banana rings and a side of mayonnaise.
