Awesome recipe for a chicken salad calzone! Sounds unusual and delicious.
A Calzone is basically a folded pizza or turnover pastry shaped like a half moon. The typical calzone contains tomatoes, cheese and marinara or similar sauce. Many variations of calzone exist and several restaurants stuff the pastry with meats and other ingredients usually used for pizza toppings. Calzones remind me of empanadas, those Spanish pastries stuffed with meat and other ingredients, except that they’re smaller in size. In fact, in the Philippines, they make even smaller-sized empanadas , which are called – no surprise here – empanaditas.
For this Calzone recipe, I chose to use my version of the grilled chicken salad as filling which makes marinara or other sauce unnecessary. I used whole wheat pizza dough . I used cheese as topping rather than filling.
1 lb boneless and skinless chicken breast
1 cup frozen green peas, cooked
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup onions, chopped
