These stuffed peppers are delicious! I've been searching for a good stuffed pepper recipe for several months, and being a fairly picky eater, there wasn't a single recipe I felt compelled to try until I saw this one. The curry powder and pepper add a very nice kick to what would otherwise be quite bland, and the celery keeps the stuffing from being too stodgy by adding freshness and bite. I only made three changes to the recipe as it appears here, purely out of personal preference: first, I found that the first time I made it, the onion and celery were too crunchy, so the second time around I chucked them in with the rice during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Second, I covered the baking dish with tin foil until it was time to sprinkle with the parmesan cheese, then baked the peppers uncovered for the last 10 minutes, thereby preventing the stuffing on top from getting too brown or crunchy during cooking. Finally, I prepared my chicken slightly differently by ""shredding"" the chicken (really just mashing it up with a fork), which allowed for a more even distribution of texture and flavour than cubed chicken. This dish has entered our menu rotation and I'm sure we'll be enjoying it for a long time to come. Thanks very much!
