[Food Series] Easy & Healthy Homemade Chicken & Mushroom Calzones

I am always trying to come up with quick, easy and healthy ideas for a toddler on the go! One that can be thrown in the bag and eaten on the trail. As I was perusing the Trader Joe’s refrigerated section a few weeks ago, I came across their homemade whole wheat pizza dough and it hit me! I could make calzones stuffed with anything! Freeze them and pop them in the oven whenever I didn’t feel like cooking! Of course, you could make your own pizza dough, if you’re good at that kind of thing, but I don’t have the patience for it. Ha! Enjoy!
Homemade Calzone
Ingredients

Take the whole wheat pizza dough and roll it out, then cut it into evenly-shaped rectangles. In a pan, saute the onions, lentils, chicken, mushrooms and broccoli in the olive oil. Place about 2 tablespoons of the mixture in the center of each rectangle. Fold the dough over and sealed the edges with a fork. To freeze them, place the calzones on a plate, making sure they don’t touch, and put them in the freezer. Once they are frozen solid, you can transfer them to a freezer-safe container or ziploc bag! Then, whenever you feel the desire, pull one out and place in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes! Quick. Easy. Healthy Food. Enjoy!
