Chicken Cordon Bleu Calzones!!!

I had posted the recipe below for "Breaded Ranch Chicken", and that was what I planned on making for dinner last night, but then after I looked at my menu, I realized that I really wanted to try the Chicken that is what I ended up making.

They were delicious and SO filling. The kids LOVED them, and hey, anything that gets the kids eating is good enough for me :)


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 pound)
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

1/2 medium onion, chopped

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1-1/4 cups milk

1 tablespoon minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed

8 thin slices of deli ham

4 slices of provolone cheese

Additional milk, optional

  1. Place chicken in a greased 2-qt. baking dish; cover with water. Cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until juices run clear. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Combine cornstarch and milk until smooth; stir into skillet. Add seasonings. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  2. Drain chicken. Cut pastry sheets in half width-wise. One one side of each half, place a chicken breast, 1/4 cup mushroom mixture, two ham slices and one cheese slice. Fold pastry over filling; seal edges. Place on a greased baking sheet. Brush tops with milk if desired. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden.
