This is definitely not a low carb/keto recipe! But it is DELICIOUS! This is super easy to make and a fun twist on regular sloppy joes.
- 1 lb pasture raised ground chicken
- 1 cup diced yellow onion
- 1/3 cup honey (more if you prefer a lot of sweetness)
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp white vinegar
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tbsp corn starch
- 4 hamburger buns
Preheat oven to 400F for toasting the buns.
Put the ground chicken into a large pan over medium-high heat along with a dab of butter.
Add the diced onions and ground chicken. Break the chicken up as it cooks.
Once the ground chicken is fully cooked, add the honey, soy sauce, white vinegar, minced garlic, pepper and salt.
Stir well and bring to a boil.
Pour the water and corn starch into a small bowl and stir well.
Add the corn starch and water mixture to the pan with the sloppy joe mixture. Stir well and leave the mixture to continue cooking for 2 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken, then reduce the heat to low.
Put the buns in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the oven and toast the buns for 4 minutes.
Remove the buns from the oven and spoon the chicken mixture onto the bottom buns.
