Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes

This is a great way to mix up your weeknight routine – who doesn’t love good ole sloppy joes.  Except these are really over the top – with the addition of celery, carrots and Frank’s Hot Sauce – topped with real blue cheese crumbles – they were delicious.  Sure to become a favorite in your house!  
And just wait until I tell you what I served with them (hint: sneak peek in the upper left corner of this photo) :)


  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp. hot sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot)
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 4 good quality burger rolls, split and toasted
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles


1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

2. Add the meat and cook until browned.

3. Add in carrot, celery, onion and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook 7 to 8 minutes more.

4. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire, hot sauce, tomato sauce and chicken stock. Pour into the pan and stir to combine all ingredients. Simmer for a few minutes until the mixture thickens up.

5. Place filling on the prepared buns and top with blue cheese.
