BBQ Chicken Calzones

I love bbq chicken pizza and these have all the same flavors!  They were easy to make and were delicious.  Rolling out the dough was a bit time consuming but otherwise these little calzones were pretty quick to throw together.  I used a can of Kirkland brand canned chicken from Costco but you could cook up a couple chicken breasts or even use a rotisserie chicken.

BBQ Chicken Calzones
Inspired by Life as a Lofthouse

1 can (16oz) Pillsbury Grand's Homestyle Biscuit dough
1 can chicken or 1 large boneless skinless Chicken breast, cooked and diced
1/2 cup Barbecue Sauce
1/2 cup Bacon, cooked and crumbled ( I used Oscar Mayers pkg of  Real Bacon bits)
1/2 cup chopped Red Onion
Fresh Mozzarella, cubed
Shredded Mozzarella

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together the cooked chicken and barbecue sauce.
Remove biscuit dough from can. Take one dough piece and lay out on a clean surface. Roll out flat into a 6 inch circle. Repeat with all dough circles.

In the center of a flattened dough circle, place 1/4 cup of barbecue chicken. Top with desired amount of red onion, bacon, cilantro and mozzarella.  Fold dough over filling.  Seal the edges by pressing them together. I also used a fork and gently pressed all around the edges. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. You will have 8 calzones total.

Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately!
