BBQ Chicken Joes

The man of the household worked a double shift last weekend, which meant we spent a rare Saturday together. So, we made a little mini vacation out of it by meeting a friend for brunch, drinking boozy milkshakes in the afternoon and watching a Back to the Future marathon. In a word, our day together was AWESOME!
I knew that Mr. Man would be pretty tired from working an 18 hour shift, so I rewarded him with slowcooked BBQ Chicken Joes for dinner.  He had his on country white bread as a sandwich, which he swears is the way to go, but I had mine straight up in a bowl which I think is the better option.  Now I'm back from my "vacation" and trying to avoid the huge mountain of laundry that's been piling up in the bedroom, sigh.....

BBQ Chicken Joes
1 lb ground chicken
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
¼ c. BBQ sauce (I used Stubb’s honey pecan sauce)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp chili powder
Shredded cheese as garnish
1.       Combine all ingredients in crockpot, cook on low for 8 hours.
Enjoy with the '80s movie of your choice for a fantastic date night!

  2. My first comment, yay!

    Thanks, we loved these "sandwiches" and it made me really happy that we were able to eat something healthy on our lazy day instead of deep fried and sodium filled Chinese delivery.
