  1. Prepare rice according to package directions.
  2. While the rice is cooking, begin making the sloppy joes.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat and add the chicken. Stir to separate the meat and then add the onions, peppers, garlic, salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the meat is cooked and the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. In a measuring cup or small bowl, combine 1/4 cup water, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and vinegar.
  5. Once the rice is cooked, drain and add to the skillet. Add the liquid ingredients into the meat and rice mixture and stir well to combine. Continue to simmer for about 5 minutes to meld the flavors.
  6. Serve on whole-wheat buns.

This was just ok for us. I did like the rice in it quite a bit. it was outside the box for me that there was rice in sloppy Joe's, but it works well. For me I think I might have preferred ground...

This was really tasty. I liked the addition of brown rice and that this used ground chicken. Next time I think I'll play around with some of the proportions of the sauce to get it perfect for me...
