BBQ chicken is one of my pizza flavours and it makes for some tasty sloppy joes as well! The usual sloppy joe ground beef is replaced with ground chicken and since the tomato sauce in the pizza is replaced with BBQ sauce, BBQ sauce is used instead of sloppy joe sauce. The other toppings on the pizza include red onions, pineapple and hot/banana peppers which are included in these sloppy joes. I like to top these BBQ chicken sloppy joes off with shredded mozzarella and pickled onions! Whether you are looking for a quick and tasty weeknight meal or a tasty snack to enjoy while watching the game, these sloppy joes are sure to please!
