“A sloppy joe is typically made with ground beef and a spicy tomato sauce, but not this one! This makeover sandwich combines lean ground chicken breast with green peppers, and is topped with sweet apple slices.”


    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • 1 pound very lean ground chicken breast, such as Smart Chicken® 99% lean
    • ¼ cup chopped green sweet pepper
    • 1 (15 ounce) can sloppy joe sauce, such as Full Circle™ brand
    • 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar (see Tip)
    • 6 80-calorie wheat buns, such as Sara Lee® Delightful™ brand, toasted
    • 1 unpeeled apple, cored and thinly sliced into rings
    • 9 stalks celery, cut into sticks


  • 1 Coat a 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add ground chicken and green pepper to skillet and cook over medium-high until meat is browned and pepper is tender, breaking up meat as it cooks. Stir in the sloppy joe sauce and brown sugar; heat through.
  • 2 Place apple slices on bun bottoms. Top with meat and bun tops. Serve with celery sticks.
  • Tip: If using a sugar substitute, we recommend Splenda(R) Brown Sugar Blend for Baking. Use 2 tsp. Equivalent. Nutrition Per Serving with Substitute: Same as below, except cal. 230, carb. 31 g (12 g sugars).
