Chicken Stuffed Peppers

I am a huge fan of chicken salad. I also like to stuff vegetables to create delicious meals. I thought I would combine both of my loves and create sort of a warm chicken salad, place it inside a pepper and then bake it, there by roasting the pepper at the same time. This is kind of like a chicken salad melt inside a pepper instead of bread. It would be great served with some kind of potatoes whether it is potato salad or roasted potatoes, or another starch like couscous.

Brown Rice Salad

brown rice saladI made this while I was home at my mom's last week and she said she is going to make it all summer long. I thought I would help her out by posting the recipe. This is great for a bbq or picnic because its cheap and you can make a large bowl of it. Sorry there is no photo. I will be sure to take one next time I make it. I like to eat this cold or at room temperature but feel free to serve it warm as well.
