Step up your Sloppy Joe game with Chicken Bacon Ranch Sloppy Joe’s!  Ready in under 30 minutes, these Sloppy Joe’s are a yummy mixture of chicken, bacon, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, and ranch seasoning all sandwiched between a bun.  If you’ve ever had anything chicken-bacon-ranch flavored before, you know what I’m talking about 😊  This recipe is a win!

The recipe can be found here.

Start by heating a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add the bacon and cook according to package instructions.  Remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate to drain some of the grease.  Do not drain the grease from the pan – you will be cooking the other ingredients in the bacon grease.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the chopped onion.  Cook until soft and translucent.  This shouldn’t take long because the bacon grease will already be plenty hot!

Add the ground chicken to the skillet and cook until the meat is cooked through.  Break apart the meat into small chunks as it cooks.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, ranch seasoning, and cornstarch.  Pour the mixture into the skillet and stir to combine.  Bring to a simmer and cook for 5-7 minutes or until reduced and thickened.

Add the mozzarella cheese and stir to combine.  Continue to heat until melted.

Chop the bacon and add to the skillet.  Stir to combine.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Place the buns, open faced, on a baking sheet.  Place 1 slice of cheddar cheese on each side of the bun.  Heat for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the buns are toasted.  This step is completely optional, but I think it really completed the sandwich!

Add heaping portions of the Sloppy Joe mixture to each bun and top with any leftover chopped bacon.  Enjoy!  Make sure to have a fork handy because these sandwiches are messy…or sloppy 😊

I love the flavors of this recipe and could easily eat the Sloppy Joe mixture as is and skip the bun, but where’s the fun in that?  Calories don’t count when you’re trying a new recipe…right?  I hope you not only try this recipe but also enjoy every last bite.

Happy Cooking!
