Easy Cheat Bar B Que Chicken Calzones Recipe @pinch

Easy and delicious these calzones are a quick dinner or a great game day snack. There's a bit of smokiness from the barbecue sauce and a hint of sweetness thanks to the onion. As soon as you take a bite cheese just oozes out with the juicy shredded chicken. Fresh cilantro rounds out the flavors wonderfully. So good! This is an easy calzone on those days you just don't have time for the real thing. :)

Prep time: Cook time:
Recipe Cuisine: Italian Recipe Category: Chicken Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) shredded rotisserie chicken (or use leftovers)
  • 12 - frozen dinner rolls thawed @ room temp
  • 3/4 cup(s) bbq sauce (more according to your preference)
  • 1/2 bunch(es) fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion
  • 1 cup(s) shredded mozzarella cheese
Intructions :
  • Place one frozen dinner roll in each cup of a muffin tin. Cover with a light towel and let thaw to room temp and rise slightly
  • Roll each roll out as far as it can go. Make them thin
  • Spread 2-3 tablespoons of your favorite BBQ sauce on 6 of the 12 rolled dough pieces, leaving about 1/4 - 1/2-inch border of dough on the outside
  • Place as much cooked and shredded rotisserie chicken as desired (about 1/4 cup for each calzone)
  • Place 1-2 tablespoons of chopped onion over the tops of the chicken
  • Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of cilantro over the top of the onion. If you don't care for cilantro just skip this step
  • Sprinkled with shredded mozzarella cheese. I like cheese so I use 1/4 cup on each
  • Make sure none of the filling touches 1/4-1/2 inch dough border you left around the outside of your 6 calzones. Place a rolled out dough on top of each of your calzones and seal it up. Make sure it is sealed TIGHTLY so that none of the filling leaks out
  • Place the 6 calzones on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden in color
  • We like to dip ours in garlic ranch dressing. But, you don't need to dip them in anything as they are good on their own!
