Today we’re going to make delicious chicken stromboli. If you’re already a bit acquainted with Italian cuisine, you may mistake this meal for calzone. Although those two look quite similar, the recipes are still very different. When cooking stromboli we use square-shaped pizza dough which is later rolled into a log. Calzone recipe on the other hand uses a round-shaped dough which later you should fold in half.

The list of ingredients for stromboli recipe is adjustable, which makes it a perfect meal, if you have various leftover food in the fridge. Use your imagination and experiment with combinations of toppings. To make the preparation quicker, you can use store-bought dough and marinara sauce or, if you have some spare time, make them at home.

Steps

1
Done

Flour the work surface and roll out the pizza dough into a square shape about 11x13 inches (28x33 cm) in size. Rolling out is easier, if the dough is room temperature.

2
Done

In a little bowl combine the shredded chicken with Parmesan cheese and ½ cup (130 g) of marinara sauce. (Leave the rest of the sauce for dipping.)

3
Done

Place the dough in a way so the longer side is looking at you and put the chicken filling in the center of the dough. Put the slices of mozzarella and basil leaves on top of it.

4
Done

Starting 1 inch from the top of the dough, make ½-inch (1 ½ cm) cuts from the center toward the edges. Fold the top part of the dough over. Braid the dough strips across the center. Cut off the excess dough and tuck the two end pieces underneath the pastry. (Feel free to cut off any excess dough as long as the filling is sealed.) Place the stromboli onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

5
Done

Brush the top of the dough with olive oil, top off with Parmesan. Put in the oven preheated to 375 °F (190 °C) for around 25 minutes until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Remove the stromboli from the oven, move it to a rack and leave for 10 minutes. Cut and serve.

Serve this mouth-watering pastry as a snack, main course with various side dishes, or pack it as a lunch for work or school, it’s really convenient! We hope you’ll add today’s article to your Italian recipe collection and come back to this tasty stromboli again and again.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
