    Great tasting and worth a try!

    This receipe was extremely easy to make and very tasty! I followed the receipe except for the canned chicken. I had used it in the past and felt that it broke down to easy, so I used precooked chicken that was already seasoned! The only issue I found was the pizza dough, I had never worked with it before no neeless to say our calzones came out a bit interesting looking! Overall they tasted great and would definitely recommend this recipe!

    Southwest Chicken Calzones

    I cut up a rotisserie chicken so not as easy as canned chicken but I know it tasted better. Most of my family really liked it. My husband is not as fond of cream cheese as I am (then again, no one is) so it was just okay for him. I liked the idea of using refrigerated pizza crust. I had never used it before. Made this recipe quick and easy and gave me ideas for other things I can stuff in calzones.

    This was really great!! I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and cooked them for a few minutes in a pressure cooker. I topped the calzones with some salsa and some sour cream. This recipe is a keeper.
