Every Monday my husband gets together with the guys in our neighborhood for Monday night football. They rotate houses and everyone brings their own beer while the host provides a snack (usually wings.) I use this time to try out new recipes as I don't like to make any new desserts unless I know I will have lots of people over to eat them. I have no self control!
BBQ Chicken Calzone
My husband was in charge of the wings and the pizza dough but I fixed up the rest. I found both the calzone and skillet cookie recipes on Pinterest. I have tried out the calzones before but this time I gave BBQ chicken a try. It was super easy. I put two chicken breasts in a crock pot with a chopped onion and BBQ sauce and left it to cook all day. By the time I was ready to make dinner the chicken had fallen apart and made a perfect calzone filling.
When it was time to make the calzone I flattened the dough and shaped it into a rectangle. After that I took the BBQ chicken mixture and put it down the center of the rectangle and topped that with cheddar cheese.
After the mixture was put down the center, I cut the dough into 1 inch strips and started folding the dough over to make the appearance of a braid. I then rubbed some olive oil on the top and sprinkled them with cornmeal.
In addition to the BBQ chicken, I also made a veggie and pepperoni calzone. These are so easy to make and will impress your guests. The first time I made these I followed this tutorial.
For dessert I made a skillet chocolate chip cookie that I found on the pink and blue blog. It was so yummy and easy. I will definitely be making it again!
