Chicken Parmesan Calzones – Just 5 ingredients until you have all the flavors of chicken Parmesan, but in a hand held calzone on a weeknight!
Do you ever buy Rotisserie chickens? They have them at all the grocery stores, and they always smell so darn good! We don’t buy them often, but it is always a treat when we do. For close to $5 we get 1 full meal, and usually lunch the next day. Plus I then use the bones to make chicken stock. Such a bargain! Sometimes though, I want to do more than just eat the plain chicken. So why not use it in a ton of recipes like these Chicken Parmesan Calzones!
Trish from the blog Mom on Timeout came out with the book 100 Creative Ways to Use Rotisserie Chicken in Every Day Meals. Seriously, 100 different recipes, all in one book. And all of them using chicken. It is like a moms dream! I am constantly trying to come up with new and exciting ways to cook chicken for my family. These Chicken Parmesan Calzones were definitely a fun twist on our normal chicken dinner. Just 5 ingredients, and dinner was done! To make the calzones you use store bought pizza dough, so it is super easy to throw together on a weeknight.
I am pretty sure this cookbook has a little something for everyone! Everything from casseroles, to flautas, tacos, soups, pasta, sandwiches, and even slow cooker recipes. My 10 year old loves to go through cookbooks and magazines to pick out things he wants me to make. I usually have him either put a post it note on the page, or just make a list on a sheet of paper. The kid marked probably half the recipes in the book! And my husband will not stop asking when I am making the slow cooker chicken chile verde. So I think it is safe to say we will be making way more than just the chicken Parmesan calzones from this book!
