Ingredients

  • 3 Bell peppers Medium size
  • 1 cup Mushrooms Finely chopped
  • 2 cups Shredded Chicken
  • ½ cup Cottage Cheese
  • 1 tsp Dried parsley
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • ¼ tsp salt (more to taste)
  • ½ cup Shredded Cheese I used mozzarella

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375° (190°C).
  • Slice bell peppers length-wise and clean out the seeds and fibers. Place in an oven-safe dish face-up.
  • In a bowl, combine shredded chicken, mushrooms, cottage cheese, parsley, salt, and garlic. Combine thoroughly then spoon it into each bell pepper half.
  • Bake at 375° (190°C) for 20 minutes. Pull the pan out and top each stuffed pepper with shredded cheese. Place back in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is nice and bubbly.

Notes

Note: My bell peppers were medium-sized. If your bell peppers are extra-large, the filling may not fill each half totally.
You're welcome to use more cheese if you'd like! The nutrition facts reflect the amount of cheese in the recipe. 
Also, if you're feeding hungry teenage boys, you'll want to double the recipe!
