Ingredients

  • 2
    oz cream cheese (1/4 cup), softened
  • 1/4
    cup Frank’s™ RedHot sauce or red pepper sauce
  • 1 1/4
    cups chopped shredded deli rotisserie chicken
  • 3/4
    cup shredded mozzarella or Cheddar cheese (3 oz)
  • 1
    can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers refrigerated Buttermilk biscuits
  • 1
    egg
  • 1
    tablespoon milk
  • 2
    tablespoons softened cream cheese, for football laces

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper. In small bowl, mix 1/4 cup cream cheese and the sauce until smooth. Mix in chicken and shredded cheese just until combined.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 8 biscuits; cut each crosswise in half with serrated knife for total of 16 biscuit rounds. On work surface, press each half into a 4 1/2-inch circle; add a rounded tablespoon of chicken mixture to center of each circle.
  • 3
    Fold biscuit over filling; press edges with fork to seal. Using pizza cutter or sharp knife, trim forked edges of excess dough to look like football, and place on cookie sheet.
  • 4
    In small bowl, beat egg and milk; brush egg mixture on top of dough. Bake 16 to 19 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 5
    In small, resealable freezer bag, add 2 tablespoons softened cream cheese, and cut small corner from one end of bag. Squeeze 1 line of cream cheese crosswise and 4 lines lengthwise to make laces of football on top of each calzone. Serve warm.

  • If desired, add 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese to the Buffalo chicken mixture.
  • Serve with additional sauce, if desired.
