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."
