Reviews for Chicken Cordon Bleu Calzones
"The flavor was fine. Just didn't care for all the pastry dough. chicken was moist!"
"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. :/"
"This was a big hit with the family, was easy to make.. Cant wate to tell the other Army wifes about it! :) Thanks"
"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."
