Red Pepper and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken
I like to remember this Red Pepper, Mozzarella and Pepperoni-Stuffed Chicken as one of my first dinner experiments when I began hosting dinner parties for my friends.
When I started out on my bachelor journey, I wasn’t the greatest chef and this recipe exudes the simplicity that I was after. Healthy, chicken breast stuffed with roasted red pepper strips, pepperoni slices and melted mozzarella cheese. It’s almost like a chicken-stuffed-pizza.
