What’s a two-fer? You mean you don’t know? It’s like Bo-Go. Y’all know what that is right? Buy One Get One? Except a two-fer is two fer the price of one. A two-fer. Get it? This actually was more like a three-fer. I did take some of the chicken and made some snacks out of it. I tried my hand at buffalo chicken egg rolls; they weren’t purdy. Then I tried won tons, yeah…not so much.
You see? I started the post, but they just didn’t look good. Tasted FAB-ulous, but just weren’t blog worthy. I will revisit this at some point. I suppose I should tell ya what I’m talking about, huh?
A little while ago I made Buffalo Chicken in the slow cooker. I turned them into sammies? Remember? Of course, we didn’t eat all of the chicken. When I cook in the slow cooker, we rarely if EVAH eat all that is made. So, instead of letting the left overs go to waste, I put the rest in the freezer for a later date. Well, today is that day! With the pantry and freezer cleaning cooking I’m doing, I decided to use this chicken up.
I can’t remember if he liked them or not. He ate half of one. Being as we had a decent side salad, I could barely finish half of one, so I’m sure he didn’t NOT like them. Make sense? *scratches head* Not sure I can explain it any better than that.I was trying to think of other things I could have made with the left over chicken. Stuffed pretzels. Egg rolls or won tons. More sammies. Enchiladas? Macaroni and cheese. Um…..I’m out. Any other ideas? I have shredded beef and barbecue chicken in the freezer for later. So, trying to figure out what to do with those meats, too.
I took 3 large, green bell peppers and cut the tops off. I removed the seeds and membranes. Then I placed them in a zip top plastic bag with a couple of tablespoons of water.
Then I added about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of rice. This amount varies on how much rice you want in your filling. *I* love a lot of rice. So, I probably added more along the lines of 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups.
Once it’s all combined, you stuff the peppers making sure to fill all the nooks and crannies.
Then bake them in the oven about 30 minute or so until the filling is completely heated through and the cheese has melted.
When the peppers are done, you can serve them whole or slice them open like we did.
They’re not very colorful, but they did taste good. I’m thinking if I make these again, I’d add some carrots and celery to the stuffing. They would add more veggies, which is never a bad thing, and add some color and crunch to the mix.
