Italian Chicken Calzone

italian chicken calzone

This past week I set out to make a new style of calzone.  I have to say it was an instant hit with my husband.  If it were not for the fact I had a piece to take a picture of, I may not have even got a bite!  By the time I got back to the kitchen, he had already eaten nearly all of it!  This is a great way to add a new twist to calzone.

This recipe uses the bread machine pizza dough.  I love this dough and have not branched out much on other versions as I am so fond of this one, I simply can’t change!

Italian Chicken Calzone


  • 2 Large Chicken Breast, Cubed
  • 1/4 Cup Fat Free Italian Dressing
  • 1/2 Red Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Cup Marinara Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Asiago Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • Parsley
  • 1 Pizza Crust
  • Olive Oil, Optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 400*.
  2. In a large skillet cook the chicken in the Italian dressing. I used enough to cover the bottom of the skillet and let this cook until all the Italian dressing had been soaked up by the chicken.
  3. Spray non stick cooking spray on a large cookie sheet. Roll out the dough in a circle, and spread the marinara sauce around the 1/2 of the dough, think semi-circle. Then cover with the toppings. We used the chicken, chopped onion, cheese, and then a few sprigs of fresh parsley.
  4. Once the toppings are on then take one side of the dough and pull over to the other side, making a semi-circle. To seal the edges, you can use a fork or any other grooved utensil.
  5. Once it was sealed, I poured a little bit of olive oil and sprinkled the top with a bit more fresh parsley.
  6. Bake this in the oven for 15-20 minutes until dough is slightly browned.
