ISLAMABAD: Looking for some tasty yet simple recipes? Look no further. BBQ Chicken Calzone is the perfect quick recipe to enjoy this weekend. It is a classic combination of juicy chicken filling loaded with cheese and pizza sauce.


Chicken cubes 1/2 kg, black peppercorn 1/2 tsp, salt to taste, water as required, flour 3 cups, sugar 1 tbsp, yeast 1 ½ tsp, salt 1/2 tsp, oil 1 ½ tbsp, warm water 1 cup, yeast mixture 1 cup, BBQ sauce 1 ½ tbsp, hot sauce 1 tsp, coriander powder 1 tsp, mustard sauce 1/2 tsp, red chili powder 1/2 tsp, mayonnaise 1/2 cup, garlic powder 1 tsp, boiled chicken 1/2 kg, cheddar cheese as required, marinara sauce as required, olive as required, egg yolk 1 (for brushing)


  1. In a pan, simmer water with salt and peppercorns. Add chicken and boil until fully cooked. Remove any foam and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for 5 to 7 minutes until yeast is activated.
  3. Take a bowl, and combine flour, salt, oil, and the prepared yeast mixture. Knead the dough gently.
  4. Cover the dough with cling film and let it rest for 30 to 40 minutes until it doubles in size.
  5. In another bowl, shred the boiled chicken.
  6. Mix shredded chicken with mayo, BBQ sauce, hot sauce, mustard sauce, salt, coriander powder, red chili powder, and garlic powder.
  7. Sprinkle flour on the dough and knead it for another minute. Divide the dough into six portions and roll each into a thin round shape.
  8. Spread marinara sauce on each round, then top with chicken filling, cheese, and olives.
  9. Fold the dough in half, forming a half-moon shape. Seal the edges properly and make three marks on top with a knife to let air out while baking.
  10. Place the calzones on a baking tray, brush with egg yolk, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius, or until golden brown.
