I’m all for these stuffed pepper recipes and so I had to add this Easy Chicken Pesto Stuffed Peppers to the list, naturally! Best made with medium, sweet yellow or orange peppers and stuffed with a hearty filling made from shredded rotisserie chicken, cooked brown rice, premade pesto and shredded cheese to keep it all together.

I love a dish that takes just minutes to prepare and leaves you licking the plate clean. This recipe, in my opinion, tops the charts!
