Chicken Cordon Bleu Calzones Recipe

These tempting puffs are an elegant alternative to a traditional chicken pie. The recipe combines the delicate flavor of chicken cordon bleu with the impressive look of beef Wellington. The individual pies are simple to serve...and cleanup is a breeze! —Kathy Gounaud Warwick, Rhode Island

I made this for dinner tonight and then checked the calories after I ate it. Needless to say, I was shocked. It was really good but I probably won't make it again or if I do, I will only eat half a serving....For those of you who are interested this dish is 1,128 calories per serving. :/

I served these at our annual Christmas dinner to 12. I made them ahead of time and put them in the fridge. Then I baked all 12 for about 40 min at 375. They turned out perfect and got rave reviews! Definitely would make them again!

I tried this recipe and left out the mushrooms because I don't like them. This did not come out at all for me. Obviously not enough liquid and the sauce was like paste. I am sure it is great for people who like mushrooms.
