Scrumptious Sloppy Joes

Updated: Feb 19

Sometimes you need to just dive into a Sloppy Joe & chips--- and this is the one to do so. Honestly, Sloppy Joes remind me of It Takes Two the Mary Kate & Ashley movie, where they go to camp haha don't ask me why, anyone else??

Now I know that sloppy joes are not the most attractive things to photograph, but trust me these will make up what they may lack in look in AMAZING taste!! I also like my buns really crispy & they were so yummy that we finished them up they were that good-- we had no more buns left (( so that speaks to the yumminess))

PRO TIP: With the left overs we air fried Alexia tater puffs and then heated the Sloppy Joe lefts overs and layered it on top.... SO GOOD! ENJOY!


2 lbs ground chicken

4 tbsp Worcester Sauce

8 oz bella mushrooms

1/2 chopped yellow onion

1/4 cup red wine caberenet

4 cloves garlic

1 orange bell pepper

6 oz tomato paste

3/4 cup ketchup

2 tbsp dijon mustard

1 tbsp unsalted butter

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp salt

4 slices provel

8 oz chicken broth

garlic salt, pepper & salt to taste


1. In a medium frying pan pour olive oil and let heat while you chopped the yellow onion & mince 2 cloves garlic & add to the oil in the frying pan. While that is sautéing clean & slice the baby Bella mushrooms. Once the onion & garlic is starting to get a little brown add in the mushrooms, then cut up the tbsp of butter & sprinkle pieces over the mushrooms. With a spatula stir the mushrooms into the garlic, onion, olive oil & butter at let it cook down until they start to become soft about 3-5 minutes. Then add 1/4 cup red wine cabernet & keep it at a low boil until the mushrooms absorb the red wine, sprinkling with garlic salt, salt & pepper to taste. Then pour into a bowl & set them aside (( try not to eat them all in the mean time))

2. In the same frying add 1 tbsp olive oil & 2 garlic cloves minced, let garlic start to simmer & then add the 2 lbs ground chicken. Cook down the chicken until there are no pink, break into pieces but not too small, you want them in a good sized pieces as seen above so that the sandwich holds together well-- or as well as a Sloppy Joe can :)

3. On medium heat ss the chicken cooks, chop up the bell pepper & once the chicken is cooked all the way threw add in the bell pepper & the mushroom mixture. Mix the pepper, mushrooms & chicken so that it is evenly dispersed. Then sprinkle in the paprika, onion powder, salt & add in Worcester sauce, dijon mustard, tomato paste, ketchup. Stir in until well combined, the slowly add in the chicken broth. You want to keep stirring on medium heat & continue to add it in as it absorbs. Keep pouring & stirring until it thickens to where the mixture can stack on top of each other immediately falling over. Lastly break apart the 4 pieces of provolone cheese & sprinkle it over the mixture and mix it in. Once it is all melted in, set aside & let it cool a few minutes. Toast your buns & pile on the yummy goodness & another slice of provolone of course. ENJOY!
