Recipe

Over the weekend there was a lot of football watching and wing eating going on in these parts. But having vowed to stay away from fried foods for the month of January, I knew I needed a yummy alternative for when the wings showed up so I decided to make these delicious and incredibly simple Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes. The recipe really couldn't be easier - ground chicken, carrots, celery, buffalo sauce, and some spices - but stuffed into a sandwich with some ranch slaw and it makes one satisfying meal.

    We made this without tomato juice, and it was great. Can't wait to do it again once we have all the ingredients.

    My husband was less than enthusiastic when I told him I was making healthy "football food." However, while eating it he kept saying that it was "outstanding!" It was spicy but delicious. I also chopped the veggies finely in mini food processor. Will definitely make again.

    Not a true fan of sloppy joes.. I would leave out the tomato sauce so that it was more authentic Buffalo Wing flavored! Loved the addition of the veggies.

    This was a winner! 5/5 thumbs up. I diced the onions, celery and carrots up tiny to "hide" them from my children. It worked like a charm. So glad to add something new to my recipe repertoire!
