Asian Chicken Sloppy Joes

What a delicious and my new favorite way to eat sloppy joes. These Asian style Sloppy Joes are a winner in my house, the delicious chicken in a savory sauce, that is amazing, then peppers and coleslaw mix added in just tops it off perfectly..

  • For the Coleslaw Topping:
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups packed shredded coleslaw mix

  • For the Sloppy Joes:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red, or yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cups packed shredded coleslaw mix
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha 
  • 6 hamburger buns 

  1. To Make Coleslaw Topping: In medium bowl, whisk together vinegar and oil. Add onions and shredded coleslaw mix; toss to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. To Make Sloppy Joes: In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and peppers, then cook 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, stirring and breaking up chicken as it cooks. Then add garlic, tomato paste and ginger; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  3. Stir in shredded coleslaw veggie mix, water, hoisin sauce, soy sauce and sriracha; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 4 to 5 minutes or until mixture is thickened, stirring occasionally.
         4. Serve on toasted buns..
