Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes

  • When the skillet is hot, sauté the onion, carrots and celery until they start to soften, about 3 minutes.
  • Add in the minced garlic and sauté another minute.
  • Add in the ground chicken and break it up into crumbles with a wooden spoon.
  • Season with a teaspoon of kosher salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Cook the chicken and vegetables until the meat is cooked through and no longer pink.
  • Add in the chicken broth or water and scrape up any bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  • In a small bowl or measuring glass whisk together the tomato sauce, wing sauce, Worcestershire and apple cider vinegar.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables and stir together until everything is coated.
  • Turn the heat down to low and simmer for about 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  • Serve on hamburger buns topped with the blue cheese ranch sauce.
