  • 4 medium multicolored bell peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 ½ cups shredded cooked chicken

  • ½ cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt

  • ½ cup shredded low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • ¼ cup hot sauce, such as Frank's RedHot

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ¼ cup chopped scallions, divided

  • 3 tablespoons blue cheese dressing or ranch yogurt dressing, such as Bolthouse Farms


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Rub or brush all sides of bell peppers evenly with oil. Arrange the peppers, cut- sides down, on the prepared pan. Bake until slightly softened, about 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, stir chicken, yogurt, mozzarella, hot sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne and 2 tablespoons scallions together in a large bowl until combined.

  3. Remove the peppers from the oven and flip them; pour off and discard any excess juices. Spoon the chicken mixture evenly into the pepper cavities (a heaping 1/3 cup each). Bake until the peppers are tender and the filling is heated through, about 15 minutes. Drizzle evenly with dressing and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons scallions.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
