How do you call your lover boy?
You stuff a chicken pot pie in his calzone. That’s freaking how.
I’m having a mild aneurism over this whole thing actually. And actually, I do realize that I overuse the word actually. I overuse a lot of words on this blawg that probably make you want to gnaw through your veins.
This is why I show you food like chicken pot pie calzones, ya know. It helps distract you from all the d-baggery. It’s like a prism in the forest. A hunky, shirtless gardener trimming roses. A baby sloth doing the Macarena.
Wait, are you already gone?
Perhaps I should just tell you now how much of a WEEKNIGHT meal this is. Oh mama bear you heard me. The laboring is nil to the vril.
Because vril definitely means something.
*THIS JUST IN. I just now looked it up and it DOES in fact mean something. It’s a book about some society and the coming race. See? They know the power of the calzone. The chicken pot pie calzone. This is what they know.
They also have insanely long hair and I’m guessing that once they take over the Earth my mane will fit right in.
Piles and piles of scrumptious pot pie.
Pockets and pockets of, well, scrumptious pot pie.
Let me ask you again. How do you call your lover boy?
Chicken Pot Pie Calzones:
What it took for 4 calzones:
* 2 chicken breasts, poached and finely chopped (do this early in the day and bam, you’ve saved time later)
* 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
* 2 carrots, finely chopped
* 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/2 onion, finely chopped
* 1 tsp dried thyme
* 3/4 cup frozen peas
* 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
* 1 (12 oz) carton organic cream of chicken soup (condensed)
* 1 pound pizza dough, divided into 4 balls (store bought is fine!)
* 1 egg (for an egg wash)
* coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 375.
In a medium sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-high. Add the carrots, celery, garlic and onion; sauté until the veggies have softened, 6 minutes. Season with the dried thyme and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Transfer mixture to a large bowl and let sit about 5 minutes to cool.
Add the chopped chicken, frozen peas, shredded cheddar and the condensed soup to the bowl. Stir to fully combine. It wouldn’t hurt to throw in another pinch of salt and pepper at this point. Wouldn’t hurt at all.
On a floured work surface, roll out each pizza ball until you get roughly an 8-inch circle. Divide the pot pie mixture among the 4 circles, and pull one end of the dough over the mixture and pinch to seal.
Crack an egg into a small bowl and lightly beat. Brush the egg wash over the top of each calzone. Take a paring knife and lightly score the tops, creating a vent for steam to escape.
Bake roughly 25 minutes, or until the calzones are golden brown!
You seriously won’t even believe what’s about to happen to you.
Let’s hope he doesn’t answer so you can eat his too.
