Chicken Sloppy Joes

Now my friends, this is a recipe that you should make right away!  I have been making these sandwiches for a long time, and let me tell you, they are delicious!  It’s a healthier alternative to ground beef, and it takes no time to put together. In fact, you can probably have this on the table within 30 minutes – even with a screaming toddler hanging on your leg. (Trust me – I know!)  I usually serve this with (don’t judge me) Funyons or regular chips.  A healthier alternative would be chips/salsa or carrot sticks/celery with a side of fruit.  The sandwiches themselves are so good that you won’t need a fancy side to steal the attention away. Enjoy!

1 lb. Ground chicken
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped

1 tbsp. dijon mustard
1/4 cup water
Salt and pepper

Add 1 tablespoon smoked paprika and 2 tablespoons of grill seasoning to the chicken. Continue to cook over medium-high heat.
Mix hot sauce, tomato sauce, Worcestershire, brown sugar, mustard in a small bowl then stir into the meat and reduce heat to low. Stir in about 1/4 cup of water to keep the mix loose as itsimmers. Simmer gently 10 minutes. Serve on toasted bakery rolls.Slightly adapted from Rachael Ray
