One of my favorite dishes growing up, and now, has always been stuffed peppers. Except I remember my mom’s version taking hours to cook in the crockpot. I don’t have time for that. What I do have time for is an easy, 20 minute, one pan Chicken Stuffed Peppers Skillet version utilizing leftovers, but with the same familiar taste. It also makes a perfect next-day lunch to take on the go in Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat containers!

For this Chicken Stuffed Peppers Skillet, you’ll first need chicken, shredded, and cooked rice. Both of these are on our menu at least once a week, so we always have leftovers. A store bought rotisserie chicken would also be good. To speed up the cooking process, you can easily rewarm the chicken and cooked rice in the microwave using Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat Containers.
Then, in a large skillet, heat olive oil and add 1 chopped onion along with 2 diced peppers. I chose red and orange peppers as I wanted the color, but you can also use green. Let those get tender and brown a bit.
Add the rewarmed chicken and rice to the pepper and onion mixture. Pour in 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1 can of tomato soup, and Worcestershire sauce. Top with cheddar cheese and let it get all melted.
Who’s ready for leftovers? So, so yum!
If you’re taking a serving of this Chicken Stuffed Pepper Skillet to work for lunch, which would be easy to reheat in the microwave in Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat Containers, you may also want to bring along a small bag of cheese to freshly melt on top. Because you can never have enough cheese.
