Cheesy Chicken-Stuffed Peppers

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by purple raider

I normally don't add salt to my recipes. I think the cheese and dressing make these salty enough.

Great recipe! A little too much cheese for me (I know it says cheesy in the title :)), and I would try using shredded chicken next time. Those are just personal taste, and very slight changes. The italian dressing worked out great and added enough seasoning that I didn't need to add salt, just like was suggested. Made for PAC spring '11
