"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

3/4 c. to 1 1/2 c. raw chopped chicken

1/2 tsp. italian seasoning
10 3/4 oz. cream chicken soup

Directions:
Directions:
Put bread dough ingredients into bread machine in the order listed and select dough cycle. Or put ingredients into sturdy mixer and use bread dough hooks to mix and knead. Allow dough to rise and double in size. Combine calzone ingredients 2 through 5 in heavy sauce pan. Cook over medium heat until chicken is no longer pink. Add drained spinach and continue to simmer. Separate dough into 8 equal pieces. Pat or roll out dough into 8 triangles 1/8 inch thick, about 6" per side. Using a slotted spoon to drain excess chicken juice mixture, spoon out chicken mixture into the center of each triangle and sprinkle grated cheese. Bring corners to center and twist to form knot in center. Seal or pinch open sides to prevent batter from spilling out during baking. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Brush lightly with butter and bake 5 more minutes or until golden brown.

Personal Notes:
This is how I got my kids to eat cooked spinach when they were younger. With each successive calzone batch, I increased the amount of spinach in the recipe to equal what is listed in the ingredient list. Also, the secret in keeping the chicken mixture inside the baking calzone is to make sure the ends are properly sealed.
