Super Easy BBQ Chicken Calzones

photo by meghanrmurphy on flickr

Who doesn't love a good calzone? Throw some leftover BBQ chicken in the mix and I dare you to walk away from this one! A winner with my hubby and super easy to make (hence the title)!

3-4 BBQ'd chicken breasts; sliced thin
2 cups barbecue sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
chopped fresh cilantro
2 tins Pillsbury pizza dough

Add sliced chicken to a large skillet on medium high heat. Add barbecue sauce and stir. Cook until heated through. Meanwhile, roll out one tin of pizza dough. Slice dough in half to create dough for two calzones.

Spoon 1/4 of the chicken mixture (piled high) on one half of each dough section. Top both with 1/4 of the shredded mozzarella, then top each with cilantro. Fold dough over toppings and seal edges. Repeat with remaining tin and ingredients.

Place in oven at 400 degrees and bake for 20-25 minutes until brown and heated through.


  1. That looks amazing! I am going to thaw out some pizza dough tonight. Thanks for this....
