Slim Sloppy Joes


  • 1 pound organic lean ground chicken
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ cup carrots chopped
  • 2 cups spinach leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small can tomato paste (6 oz)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp mustard (I used yellow, but feel free to try others!)
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste, as desired


  1. Place olive oil in a pot, and add chopped onions. Cook on the stovetop over medium heat with constant stirring until onions are clear and begin to brown.
  2. Add carrots, followed by bell peppers, and stir up so each is cooked a bit (about 5 minutes total).
  3. Add chicken meat to pot, stirring consistently until it becomes opaque and begins to brown (about 6-8 minutes).
  4. Stir in spinach.
  5. Add tomato paste, mustard, vinegar, and cayenne pepper. Continue to stir until mixture thickens a bit (about 5 minutes).
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
  7. Place on toasted Barely Bread rolls with a few slices of bell pepper. ENJOY!
