Chicken and White Bean Stuffed Peppers

Chicken and White Bean Stuffed Peppers, a great way to use up leftover chicken breast!

Stuffed Peppers are a favorite in my house! Some of my favorites are these Turkey Stuffed Peppers, Sante Fe Turkey Stuffed Peppers, Chicken Taco Chili Stuffed Peppers, and of course the popular Stuffed Pepper Soup!

Serve this with a big garden salad on the side for a complete meal.
