These stuffed poblano peppers are a chicken and cheesy delight.

I was looking for some new ideas to make lower carb dishes for dinner and wanted something the whole family would enjoy. These stuffed poblano peppers were a huge hit.

They take a little time to make since you have to cut all of the peppers and clean them out, but I was still finished prepping in under 30 minutes. I used a rotisserie chicken bought from the store to save time on preparing chicken.

I added softened cream cheese and cheddar cheese to the chicken. There wasn’t a need for any additional spices since the rotisserie chicken came seasoned. I also sprinkled a little cheese on top before baking.

You can definitely add additional flavors to the stuffing like… rotel, corn, stuffing mix, various cheeses, rice, or black beans. The key is to make sure the mixture isn’t too wet or dry.

Rotisserie chickens can be a great deal at the grocery store. We usually get more than one meal out of the chicken and they aren’t that bad in price. My husband likes eating sandwiches throughout the week with the leftovers. Some of our favorite dishes with rotisserie chickens are: buffalo chicken dip, chicken chili, chicken and noodles, chicken and gravy, chicken sandwiches, and bbq chicken sandwiches.
