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.

-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:

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)


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.
