Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes


Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes adapted from Rachel Ray
1-1 1/2 pounds ground chicken or turkey
1- 1 1/2 cups Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce
1 cup Ranch dressing
1 grated carrot
2 grated celery stalks
1 onion finely chopped
1 handful of brown sugar (if needed)

Directions:  Brown ground chicken. Add in wing sauce, ranch dressing, carrots, celery and onion. If the sauce is too hot, add in a handful of brown sugar. Serve on a bun. Add extra ranch if needed.

Modifications:
-I couldn’t find ground chicken anywhere so I just went for ground turkey
-I did not add the onions to the mixture
-I only used about 3/4 cup Frank’s sauce for about 1 1/4lb ground turkey
-I used about 3/4 cup Ranch dressing in the mixture
-If you prefer Bleu cheese with your wings, you may want to substitute for the Ranch

Here’s what you’ll need:

Grate 4 small, baby carrots.

Grate 2 stalks of celery.
Brown the turkey.
Once the turkey has cooked for a bit, add in the celery and carrots.
Once the turkey has cooked through, add 1/2 cup of Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce.
Turn the burner down and let it simmer.
Add another 1/4 cup of wing sauce.
Add in 1/4-1/2 cup of Ranch dressing.

You might want to add in another 1/2 cup of Ranch (taste it) and maybe a Tablespoon of brown sugar to cool it down a bit if it is too hot for your taste.

Here’s what you’ll end up with:

  1. Whoa! If yours is that saucey (just right) with only half of the sauce I can't imagine how it would be if you had used the full amount, can you? It would be swimming in sauce, lol.

  2. You're right, Chris, it would have been overwhelming. This has become a "go to" dish around our house. Quick, easy and even the kids will eat it (I usually add a little extra Ranch to their individual sandwich)
