Heat the oven to 425°F.
Stir the chicken, cream cheese, 1/2 cup picante sauce and shredded cheese in a medium bowl and set aside.
Unroll the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch square. Cut the dough into 4 (6-inch) squares.
Place about 1/2 cup chicken mixture on half of each square. Fold the dough over the filling and press the edges together to seal.
Place the folded dough squares on a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until they're golden brown.
Cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute and serve with the remaining picante sauce for dipping.
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!
Everyone in my family looks forward to calzone night
Such a good receipe. My family loves them so much that I now have to double the recipe so they can take one for lunch the next day.
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.
I used rotisserie chicken shredded.
