Crock Pot Sloppy Joe Chicken Sandwich Recipe

Melissa Jo


  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 sliced onion
  • 6 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1 heaping tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 3 tbsp butter sliced into pats
  • Brioche buns
  • 1 cup freshly shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp butter per brioche bun
  • Pinch of Lawry’s seasoning for each bun
  • Two sweet and sour pickle chips for each bun
  • Shredded chicken from the crockpot


  • Prepare the Crockpot: Place the chicken breasts, sliced onions, chopped garlic, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, ketchup, yellow mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt, pepper, and butter pats into the crockpot.
  • Cook on High: Set the crockpot to high heat and cook for 3-4 hours or until the chicken is tender and easily falls apart.
  • Shred the Chicken: Once the cooking is complete, use an electric mixer to blend the chicken until it is fully shredded and infused with the delicious juices from the crockpot. This should take less than a minute.
  • Toast the Buns: Lightly butter the brioche buns and sprinkle them with a pinch of Lawry’s seasoning. Broil the buns in the oven until they are lightly toasted.
  • Assemble the Sandwiches: Take each toasted bun and layer it with freshly shredded cheddar cheese, a heaping pile of shredded chicken, more shredded cheese, and two sweet and sour pickle chips.
  • Enjoy: Top each bun with the other half, and your Crockpot Chicken Sloppy Joe sandwiches are ready to be devoured! Make it!


  1. Customization: Feel free to adjust the spice levels according to your taste preferences. Add more chili powder for a spicier kick or reduce it for a milder version.

  2. Make Ahead: You can prepare the chicken mixture in the crockpot the night before and refrigerate it. The next morning, simply turn on the crockpot and let it cook while you go about your day.

  3. Freezing: This recipe freezes well, so consider making a larger batch and storing it in individual portions for quick and easy meals later on.

  4. Serving Ideas: If you prefer a crunchier texture, add some coleslaw & pickles to your sandwiches. You can also serve the shredded chicken over a bed of greens for a salad option.

  5. Meat Alternatives: If you prefer a different protein, such as ground turkey or beef, feel free to substitute it for the chicken in this recipe.
