A delicious, healthy, low-carb meal that’s ready in minutes. These Creamy Chicken Stuffed Peppers will soon become a favorite at your house. Delicious creamy chicken, fresh flavorful peppers, and absolutely macro-friendly.
The most requested recipes that I get are for LOW-CARB recipes that actually taste good and that the whole family can enjoy, so today I wanted to share with you one of my favorites!
My family loves stuffed peppers and this has quickly become a winner at our home – the filling is made using chicken that has been cooked and shredded (a rotisserie chicken works great for this – or check out my Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken recipe).
Mix the chicken with cream cheese, cheese, jalapeno, spices, and salsa. Fill each pepper with the stuffing, cook, and top with some fresh cilantro – it’s dinner perfection.
When it comes to cream cheese, I know that it’s not the healthiest choice. BUT – I recently found a Greek yogurt cream cheese that has a lot more protein in it and I have loved using it in some of my favorite recipes.
You could also use a light cream cheese (also called Neufchatel cheese) in this recipe and it would work great.
Out of all the colors of bell peppers, red peppers are my favorite (probably because they are the sweetest).
You could use any color of peppers for this recipe – any that you have on hand will work great!
Many times stuffed peppers will have the tops cut off and then you fill the entire pepper with filling, but I have found that just cutting the pepper in half down the middle and filling each half is so much easier!
I served these peppers with a green salad on the side and then we had Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert. All in all, a meal that was approved by my 4 taste-testers (aka children). 🙂
