Left over chicken and half jar of salsa. Three peppers and a box of couscous. That is all you need for this wonderful, hearty spicy dish. Each bite brings a flavor explosion in your mouth ! This is one of the best dishes I have made–super easy and amazingly delicious. Try this please and let me know what you think !
Leftover shredded chicken ( or you can shred a chicken breast)
3/4 cup salsa
1 box of garlic and olive oil flavored couscous
3 peppers, halved and de-seeded (I used the red, yellow and orange–green will work just fine–the taste will be a little more peppery)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
salt, pepper, chilli powder and cumin to taste.
Cook the whole box of couscous according to the package direction and let it cool.
Meanwhile, half and de-seed the peppers.
In a bowl, mix the couscous, chicken, salsa, salt, pepper, chilli powder and cumin.
Spray the pepper halves with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Stuff the peppers with the couscous mixture and top with breadcrumbs. You could also top it with pepperjack or cheddar cheese.
Bake in a 375F preheated oven till the pepper are soft and the bread crumbs are golden brown, about 45 mins.
Serve hot !
