Chicken and Broccoli Calzones

Chicken and Broccoli Calzones

Calzones are a terrific lunch idea for the grab-and-go types. If you have more time in the kitchen then consider these options: when cooking for one, try freezing the remaining three calzones for other meals and baking them from frozen. For family meals, get kids involved rolling out the dough or picking vegetables for the filling to help teach them about healthy choices.

Ingredients

  • Serves: 4
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • 3 cups (750 mL) broccoli florets, chopped, lightly steamed
  • 2 cups (500 mL) tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  • 2 cups (500 mL) chicken breast(s), cooked, shredded
  • 1/2 lb (0.3 kg) mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) basil, fresh, chopped
  • 1 lb (0.5 kg) frozen bread dough, defrosted
  • 1 egg(s)
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) water

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the broccoli, tomato sauce, olive oil, shredded chicken, cheese and fresh basil.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into four pieces. Roll each piece into a 10-inch 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 a small slash on each calzone; this will let any steam escape. Beat egg and water; brush over calzones. Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown.
