Buffalo Chicken Calzone

I love Franks buffalo wing sauce. I love calzones. This recipe combines the two in perfect harmony. 

Here's what you need. 
  • Frank's hot sauce
  • A package of crescent rolls
  • Ranch dressing
  • Shredded Italian style cheese (or just mozzarella)
  • Chopped onion (about 1/4 C.)
  • Chopped green pepper (about 1/4 C.) 
  • 2 chicken breasts cooked and shredded (not pictured, it was still boiling)
This is really an eyeball-it type recipe, put in how much you like. Add other stuff if you want. I think mushrooms would be an excellent addition. Mr. Mayhem, however, does not. 


Start by laying the crescents on a greased cookie sheet.


Then, press all the seams together as best as you can. It still falls apart a bit, but try to get the seams sealed. The lower left corner still needs some pinching.


Add the green peppers and onions. Again add the amount that you like.


Add the shredded chicken.


Frank's Hot sauce (really this order is arbitrary, just put the stuff inside).


Ranch dressing.


Cheese! Lots of Cheese!


Then, make little cuts along the side of the dough. I use kitchen scissors, and it is really easy. The cuts should be about 1/2-3/4 of an inch apart.


Then fold the strips over alternating.  Some might tear just press them back together.


Don't be afraid to stretch the pieces over the top. As you can see I had a small blowout on the left side. I just pushed the dough back together and wiped the sauce with a paper towel so that it didn't burn.


Here it is all done and ready to go in the oven! Bake it at 350 Degrees for 20-25 min.


In the end it looks like this goodness.


Let's zoom in on that beauty! Delicious!

This same concept can be applied to other fillings. We have filled it with pizza sauce and pepperoni, and that was delicious too! We have plans to try a BBQ Chicken version in the near future. You could probably also do it with a pizza type crust. We just really like the buttery, flaky crescent crust. Enjoy!
