Stuffed Peppers w/ground chicken

I remember attending a work party in my late teens. The host prepared the best(!) stuffed peppers. Although the party was almost 20 years ago, I still think of these peppers. I finally took charge and decided to make them myself. I figured it wouldn't be a complicated recipe, something similar to Porcupine Meatballs smushed into a pepper.

Easy Stuffed Pepper Recipe

4-6 large green peppers
1 lbs ground chicken
1 small-medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup brown rice, cooked
1 can (14.5oz) diced petite tomatoes
1 cup tomato juice or water
1 tbsp chicken broth seasoning
1 tsp tarragon leaves
½ tsp black pepper
2 eggs
Shredded cheddar cheese

Rinse peppers and remove the tops and seeds. Set peppers in a baking dish.
Preheat oven to 350.

In a bowl, stir together rice, onions, tomatoes and juice. Add seasonings and mix well. Add ground chicken into rice mixture. Mix in eggs, one at a time.

Now you are ready to stuff the peppers. Spoon mixture into the peppers.

Bake in oven for 50-60 minutes or until the middle reaches 160.  Top with cheese and bake an additional 5-7 minutes.
