Chicken Pocket Calzone $1.67

I was taking advantage of our first real day of warm spring weather here by working in the garden planting my leafy greens. I worked up an appetite and was craving something cheesy but in a good way lol. Speaking of gardening; how many of my readers enjoy planting a few crops for their own cooking? I royally failed last season so this year I have dedicated more time and research into making my harvest as bountiful as possible. *I’ll keep you updated as I progress this season.

Okay back to the FOOD…this isn’t a typical calzone thus the “pocket” in the title. I used my own homemade pizza dough which involves two different flours and yeilds a whiter final product where as most traditional calzones are darker in color.

I like to show my failed experiments as much as my works of art(be it very limited displays before consumption). This wasn’t a complete failure and ended up tasting amazingly great and so it wasn’t a complete failure in my book!

However, even though I may have over judged my fillings I tried my best at the time and it still turned out great and I am happy with it and that’s really all you can hope to accomplish in the kitchen(and life).

So i’m sure you will make this recipe your own by adding a different meat, vegetables, cheeses, peppers, etc..just go get your chopping board out and your apron on(manly I know) and just have a good time with it, peace.

Servings: person
Instructions
  1. Cook your chicken breast then pre-heat your oven to 425°.(season with garlic, onion, etc..) Chop your onion. Spread a small amount of oil on baking sheet before laying on your dough. Spread your pizza dough on a baking stone or sheet to your desired size.
  2. Spread your tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, strips of chicken breast, onion, cheese and spinach on one side of your dough. *Remember to make a pocket we must leave enough room to flip one side of dough over onto itself.
  3. I really need to follow my own rules but you can learn from my mistakes lol. I may have stuffed my pocket to the maximum capacity but oh well it's not so much how it looks but how it tastes that matters ;D *Place folded pocket into oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until dough is cooked and firm.
  4. Ta da! There you have your very own Italian chicken pocket(calzone). If you want a more brown look try adding a tiny amount of oil to the dough before baking.
