Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joe's

Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes Recipe: adapted from Rachel Ray
1-1 1/2lbs 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:

Our Thoughts:
Scott and I both really liked this version of the sandwich. We both thought the Rachel Ray version tasted good but it just didn't have that hot buffalo wing taste that we both wanted. This version was moist and definitely tasted like buffalo wings. In fact, it was almost a little too spicy for me. Scott said it was great but I ended up putting a little bit more ranch on my actual sandwich. I also added in an extra hand of brown sugar right before I pulled it off the stove to serve.

Hope you enjoy!
