I too had difficulty getting batter to stick to peppers, so I took the time-honored tradition of doing something completely different! Core the peppers, steam them until just done (al dente). Stuff with cream cheese, wrap in a wonton skin and fry... After wrapping them, you could then dip them in a milk & egg wash and roll them in bread crumbs. These freeze well also.
