  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups Mozzarella, Parmesan, garlic, marinara, parsley, and red pepper flakes and season with salt and pepper. Stir until combined, then gently fold in chicken.

Spoon mixture into halved bell peppers and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup mozzarella.
