Chicken Sloppy Joe

Cowbridge Kitchen

The Sloppy Joe is an American recipe from the early 20th century. It is made up of ripped or ground meat , Beef , Pork or Chicken and is often served in a bun or a roll that is sometimes called a loose meat sandwich.

I like to serve Sloppy Joe's with homemade chips and Onion Rings with a bit of Coleslaw on the side.

loose meat sandwiches are a great BBQ idea and make a nice change from Burgers and Hotdogs.
