Chicken Calzones

If you have extra chicken on hand then this recipe is for you! It was quick, easy, and a hit (Mr. Lawyer inhaled two of them). I used thin crust pizza dough and it turned out nice and crispy. Instead of one cheese I did a mix of cheddar and mozzarella.
BBQ Chicken Calzones
(Pinterest find!)
1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated classic pizza crust
1-1/3 cups refrigerated original barbecue sauce with shredded chicken
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella or Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
2. Unroll dough; place on cookie sheet. Starting at center, press out dough into 14×10-inch rectangle; cut into 4 (7×5-inch) rectangles. Spoon 1/3 cup chicken mixture onto half of each rectangle, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edge. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over each.
3. Fold dough in half over filling; press edges firmly with fork to seal. Prick tops with fork.
4. Bake 9-12 minutes or until light brown.
