Chicken Broccoli Calzones Recipe

Chicken Broccoli Calzones Recipe

“Smoked mozarella cheese and golden raisins add to the excellent flavor of the broccoli and chicken in these easy-to-fix calzones,“ says field Editor Iola Egle from Bella Vista, Arkansas.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
  • 1/2 pound smoked mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

Directions

  • 1. Cook broccoli according to package directions; drain. Sprinkle with sage; set aside. In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat. Stir in the broccoli, chicken, cheese, basil and raisins; set aside.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into four pieces. Roll each piece into a 10-in. circle. Carefully place one circle on a lightly greased baking sheet. Spoon a fourth of the chicken mixture onto half of the circle. Brush edges of dough with water; fold dough over filling and pinch edges to seal. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  • 3. With a sharp knife, make two slashes on each calzone. Beat egg and water; brush over calzones. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 4 calzones.
