About this Recipe

These Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Quinoa Sloppy Joes are a healthier take on an old favorite! The whole family will love these just as much as the original -- and they'll never notice the sneaky veggies!


1lb Maple Leaf Prime ground chicken
1 small onion
finely chopped
¾ cup quinoa
1½ cups water
1 medium-large carrot
1 cup ketchup
½ tsp salt
5 tbsp apple cider vinegar
¾ cup barbecue sauce
½ tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1-2 pinches crushed red pepper


In a medium pan, fry chicken over medium-high heat until cooked, stirring regularly. When chicken is browned, add onion and cook for 2-3 minutes until onion starts to soften. Add to the slow cooker.
Add the dry quinoa to the pan and toast over medium heat for 1-2 minutes until toasted. Add to the slow cooker.
Add water through crushed red pepper to the slow cooker (all remaining ingredients) and stir well. Scrape down the sides to make sure the quinoa is in the liquid.
Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 2-3 hours. Serve on buns or rolls of your choice.
