Poboylivinrich Rainbow-Stuffed Chicken

Posted by terrepruitt on November 8, 2012

This week I have been in training all week.  Nia calls its trainings “intensives”.  I have been in one all week for Blue Belt.  It is about 40 hours of a lot of information.  So I am sharing something about a recipe I have made and love.  As you may know, I only like to eat meat that has been marinated.  I figured out that I don’t really like the taste of meat.  So I like it to have soaked in something a long time to give it a different flavor.  I’ve shared with you the fact that we now freeze our meat in the marinade.  A couple of weeks back we took a weekend trip to Costco, so we spent a couple of hours after our shopping trip making marinade bags and trimming the meat and putting it in its separate bags.  Originally we had a problem with the marinated meat in a bag because we could not tell if it is whole steaks or cut up steak.  We have taken meat out expecting one thing only to get the other, so I finally learned to label the bags.  I can tell the beef from the pork from the chicken at least.  The reason I am explaining about marinating meat is because I found one recipe which I didn’t marinate the meat and I loved it.

The recipe is from Po’ Boy Livin’ Rich, he calls it Rainbow Stuffed Chicken.  It is boneless chicken breasts stuffed with bell peppers.  You use red bell pepper, green bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, and orange bell pepper.  Red onion helps add to the rainbow.  I love bell peppers as you know if you have read some of my posts.  Also, if you have read any of my posts you know I love cheese and mushrooms and this recipe has that too!  Yum.  This recipe really hits on all of my favorites.

Another thing I really like about the recipe is that you don’t cook the vegetables beforehand so the peppers don’t get too cooked.  I LOVE raw bell peppers, but I am not a big fan of the cooked variety.  So not cooking them before stuffing them into the chicken allows them to remain crunchy and not get too cooked.

I actually think I left out the mushrooms.  I just used the peppers.  That was an accident as I love mushrooms.  I think I might cook the mushrooms up a bit, because while I love my bell peppers raw, I like my mushrooms cooked.  I like this dish very much.  I actually have not made it recently and looking at the pictures makes me want to go make it for dinner now.  I don’t have all the colors of bell peppers, so I will wait until I do.  I encourage you, if you like chicken and bell peppers, to try this recipe.  You will not be sorry.  It is easy, but it takes like it is a difficult thing to make.  Ya know, one of those recipes!

    Mmmmm….I made this Saturday night, so yummy! I had way to much filling for the 3 chicken breasts I had thawed, so I put it in the fridge and had a veggie scramble for breakfast…still a lot of filling left! I thawed 3 more chicken breasts, stuffed them and cooked them up. Now we get to have it again for dinner this week and Dave has a ready made lunch, it’s that good!! Thanks for a passing this on, so easy too 🙂

    • I think I might have done that too . . . .used the left overs in scrambles. I think I can’t remember. I made it a bit ago and just hadn’t posted it until now. So you used SIX chicken breasts? WOW!

      I love this. After I wrote this I went on a quest to find the colored bell peppers. Sometimes they are priced so outrageous I refuse to buy them! That is where I am at! XOXOXO
