Ingredients needed for Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers…

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers call for only a few simple ingredients!

  • Green Bell Peppers: The most important ingredient in a stuffed peppers recipe is of course peppers! I used 3 green bell peppers here, but feel free to use whichever colors you’d like.
  • Shredded Chicken: Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers call for 2 cups of cooked shredded chicken. I recommend you use store bought rotisserie chicken … it’s tasty and so dang easy!
  • Plain Greek Yogurt: Plain greek yogurt is used here to make the pepper stuffing as creamy as can be! It provides a similar tang to sour cream, but is a healthier option. You’ll need 1/2 cup!
  • Cream Cheese: You’ll also need cream cheese! I personally believe that cream cheese is vital to any buffalo chicken dip sort of recipe. So of course I added it to this recipe. 4 oz is the perfect amount!
  • Cheddar Cheese: 1 cup of cheddar cheese on top of these stuffed green peppers is the perfect addition. It’s melty, golden, cheesy perfection!
  • Buffalo Sauce: You will need 1/3 cup buffalo sauce to make these peppers. My go-to is always Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce.
  • Garlic Powder: Add 1/2 tsp garlic powder to this recipe for a little extra flavor.
  • Salt: Lastly, add salt to taste!

What chicken should I use for this Healthy Buffalo Chicken Recipe?

I recommend you use a store bought rotisserie chicken for this Healthy Buffalo Chicken Recipe. Not only does this make this recipe so so easy to whip up, but it also adds extra flavor!

You could also of course make and shred your own chicken. My favorite method is to just boil chicken breasts for about 10 minutes and then shred with two forks. So simple!

Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers tips…

Follow the tips below for the perfect peppers each and every time!

  • Don’t skip baking the peppers by themselves first! Otherwise they will not be cooked enough. I recommend 15 minutes, but you can do longer if you want an even softer pepper.
  • Cutting the peppers can be tricky especially with those pesky seeds! I recommend cutting around the stem, pulling it out along with the seeds, and then banging the pepper with the opening face down to remove any leftover seeds. Then simply cut the pepper in half longways.
  • Shred your own cheese! Shredding your own cheese always provides a better flavor. It melts better too!
  • Add some fresh herbs & spices! I kept it super simple here with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and green onions … but feel free to add more. Maybe some red pepper flakes for extra heat or fresh parsley!

How to serve Stuffed Peppers…

You can serve these stuffed peppers on their own for a delicious low carb dinner! Or add some rice, roasted potatoes, or a different carb on the side to create a more well rounded, filling meal.

But no matter what, I recommend serving these peppers with more buffalo sauce, ranch or blue cheese dressing, and maybe even some blue cheese crumbles on top! It’ll give that buffalo wing taste and feel we all know and love.

Storing Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers…

Store this recipe in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The peppers will last up to one week!
