Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup diced carrots or a mixture of carrots and celery
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 lb lean ground chicken
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot. Use more or less, depending on how spicy you like it.)
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • Greek Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing or your favorite blue cheese dressing, or crumbled blue cheese
  • 4 Rolls for serving

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a saute pan over medium heat.
  2. Add onions, carrots (and celery, if using), and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until onions are becoming translucent and vegetables are softening.
  4. Add the ground chicken, and cook until done, breaking up the meat as it cooks.
  5. Stir in the tomato sauce, hot sauce, and Worcestershire, and simmer for several minutes, until heated through.
  6. Spoon onto rolls and top with blue cheese dressing or crumbles for serving.

Recipe Notes

Don't like blue cheese? You can also serve this with Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip.
