I know it has been a VERY long time since I have been here with sharing some great ideas in What's Cookin, but since my trip back from the store my mind is been in a daze on what to cook for dinners. I can only be creative so many times. Ha !!
I did find this recipe from the Pioneer Woman that I thought would be easy enough & comforting on a chilly fall day. So if you try it out. let me know, because now I have to look around my kitchen & pantry to see if I have the makings of this delicious looking idea.
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
1 tsp. ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 lb. ground chicken
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
1/2 c. buffalo sauce
2 tbsp. honey or brown sugar
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
8 hamburger buns
Crumbled blue cheese, for serving
Ranch dressing, for serving
Blue cheese dressing, for serving
In a large skillet or Dutch oven, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot, celery, salt, and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are softened but not browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the ground chicken and cook until the meat is crumbly and no longer pink. Add the tomato sauce, buffalo sauce, honey, and Worcestershire, stirring well to combine. Simmer until heated through, tasting for salt. Serve sloppy joe filling hot on hamburger buns with crumbled blue cheese and ranch or blue cheese dressing. Slow cooker reheat instructions: Allow the filling to cool completely before transferring it to an airtight container and storing it in the refrigerator. At least 2 hours before it’s time to eat, place the filling into the crock of a slow cooker and heat on low, stirring occasionally, until hot, 1 to 2 hours.
Tip: Ground chicken can be substituted for ground turkey.
Tip: Drain the chicken before adding the buffalo and tomato sauce if it looks watery.
