Chicken Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes


Serves 6

  • 1 pound ground chicken (or turkey)(or beef)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 6 ounces swiss or provolone cheese, shredded or cubed (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
In a large 12-inch nonstick skillet set over medium heat, cook the ground chicken, onion, pepper, thyme, salt, and pepper for 6-7 minutes, breaking the meat into small pieces as it cooks, until it is cooked through.
Drain any excess grease.
Blend or vigorously whisk the milk and flour together until smooth, being sure to eliminate any lumps.
Return the skillet to medium heat. Add the milk mixture to the ground turkey.
Bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 5-6 minutes until thickened.
Stir in the cheese until melted. Add the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, mustard, and seasoning and stir to combine.
Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve the meat mixture on buns.
