Let your crockpot do the work! Slow Cooker Chicken Sloppy Joes - Child Friendly, easy, weeknight, healthy dinner recipe

Slow Cooker Chicken Sloppy Joes is a meal my daughter continuously asks for. I have to say, I do not mind since it is loaded with vegetables. She will happily gobble up the sandwich not even bothering to look at the vegetables inside. I don’t hide the vegetables in this one. There are chunks of them throughout the sandwich. If you child is pickier, cut the vegetables into smaller chunks. I like to keep them a little bigger so they are not “mushy” by the end of cooking. Have you noticed when you cook in a slow cooker that your recipes can be watery and the vegetables mushy? Liquid does not evaporate, so it stays in the pot. The best way to combat watery slow cooker recipes is to reduce the liquid you put in. I also leave the food in larger chunks.

Make sure you have plenty of napkins on hand for this delicious dinner. My daughter actually calls these Messy Joes. They sure are! I served them on my homemade hamburger rolls. You can get the recipe here. I always keep rolls in my freezer. That way I can pull a dinner together in minutes. Sometimes dinner is a sandwich. I am sure you all know that some days, you are lucky to get dinner on the table at all. That is another reason using a slow cooker is so helpful. Make the recipe in the morning, and then no matter what happens the rest of the day, you are set. You can come home to a delicious dinner and a fabulously, fragrant house.

  3. Oh wow! Now those are some fine looking sloppy joes!
  4. These look so yummy! Anything in the slow cooker is good in my book!
  5. I love your smoky, intense flavours - smoked paprika is my go-to spice at the moment! I bet these taste amazing!
  6. Nice alternative to the regular sloppy joes and they look marvelous.
  7. Chicken sloppy joes- yum'
  8. Your recipe sounds super. Thanks for sharing

  11. The picky eater in my house is my husband but this would easily be a winner in his book!

      I've gotten to the point that I prefer ground chicken to ground turkey especially when I want the flavors to meld together.
  13. These look so flavorful and juicy!
  14. Ooh loving your sloppy joes and all the delicious flavors going on here!Yum!
  15. What a great idea to do sloppy joes in the slow cooker!
  16. This sounds great but is there a mistake, after the ingredients list, the cooking directions talk about halibut and pesto? No one else commented on this though??? I'm confused. How long in the crock pot snd on low or high
  17. Ok maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me.... I see the ingredients for the sloppy Joe... But I don't see the direction... The direction talks about and oven and some fish... Where can I get the direction on how to make the sloppy Joe??
