Stuffed Bell Peppers - Honey Lime Chicken

This is a recipe made by improvisation....I tend to do that a lot. We were fortunate to have a large crop of green bell peppers in our garden this summer, so looky what I did with them! I got the idea of honey lime flavor from an enchilada recipe a while back. Sorry to say, there is no EXACT recipe, but I will tell you how I made it to the best of my ability.
First, I put 5 chicken breast in the crockpot, seasoned with salt, chili powder, and garlic powder on high heat for 2 hours, then stirred and added 2-14 oz. cans of chicken broth and about 2 cups of rice. When the rice was cooked it needed a lot more salt than I had previously used. I separated the chicken from the rice and shredded it, and added it back to the rice in a large bowl. Then I added the juice of 2 limes and about a half cup of honey, along with a lot more chili powder with another dash of garlic powder, and mixed it up. I then chopped off the tops of the peppers and pulled out the seeds, and continued to stuff them with the rice/chicken mixture. Topping with grated cheese, I baked in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. BTW, there was WAY too much rice for the small 10 peppers I had, so this can make at least 10 regular sized stuffed bell peppers, maybe more! ...And they were Deelish!
