Recipe Group Selection: 31, January 2015 ~ My DH and I really enjoyed this calzone. I changed my cooking method to baking the chicken, as Christina did. I baked the chicken the day ahead and reheated on the stove top with the butter and buffalo sauce. We like celery with our buffalo dishes, so I made half the calzone as written and the other half I added diced celery to the chicken mixture. When I make this again, I will add celery to all of it. This is very filling and lasted us for 2 dinners with enough leftover for DH lunch. Great recipe that I will make again. Served 'Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad' from AR with it.
These were amazing, but I changed up the recipe a bit. I took 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts and put them in a large pot on the stove. I added cups of water and 4 chicken bouillion cubes and sauteed them on low for about 2 hrs. After the two hours I drained the liquid and hand pulled the chicken apart. The chicken is tender enough to do this easily, but if you would prefer chunks you could still do that as well. I used store bought frozen dough to save myself a bit of time as well. I brushed the outside of the calzones with olive oil and they were absolutely wonderful! Definately a meal I will be making again soon!
Yum! These were very good. I made a homemade pizza dough and my calzones ended up a little bready, but I'll bet with pre-made dough or biscuit mix, it would be even better. This recipe is a keeper.
Good recipe, but this is a stromboli. A calzone has ricotta cheese in it. I used thighs because wings are dark meat and I wanted to stay true to the "Buffalo" flavor. Everyone loved this stromboli and I will make it again.
