Crock Pot  Chicken Sloppy Joes

Happy Almost 2013!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas.  Ours was very nice.  We spent a quiet (well..our version of quiet) day at home and then stopped by my sisters for dessert.   The past week has been busy, but, a different type of busy.  No school schedules, homework, making school lunch or  crazy mornings of getting everybody out the door to make the school bell. Quite a nice change. 

For tonight, the kids are determined to make it until midnight.  I wish them luck. They made it until 1030 pm last year, so, we will see what tonight will bring. I will probably crash at 10 pm :)

For my last post of the year..we are heading to the our good ole' crock pot. 

This is a great dish for this time of year.  If you are tired of cooking, baking or just being in the kitchen, your crock pot is a great help.  My family loved these sandwiches. 

They are hearty and have a great tangy taste. Serve them up with a nice side salad and your dinner is done. 

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year!

{ A side note..the original recipe calls for 4  whole chicken breasts. I opted for ground chicken, but, made the same amount of sauce.  It was a bit much for 1lb of ground chicken, so, I was able to store some leftover sauce in the freezer for the future.  Use your own discretion when adding sauce to chicken}

Adapted From

1 lb ground chicken
1 small onion, minced
1-6oz can tomato paste
1-14.5oz can tomato sauce
1 TBSP ground mustard
1 TBSP paprika
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chili powder
2 TBSP red wine vinegar
6-hamburger buns

In a large skillet, add chicken and brown until no longer pink.  Spray crock pot with non stick cooking spray.  Add cooked chicken into pot.  In a medium bowl, mix all remaining ingredients until combined well.  Mix with chicken in crock pot.  Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours. Stirring frequently. Serve on hamburger buns.
Makes 6 sandwiches
