JERK CHICKEN CALZONE RECIPE

This JERK CHICKEN CALZONE RECIPE is like a folded pizza that has cheeses in it, Spicy and Sweet Jerk chicken, colored peppers and red onions, and DivineKuizine jerk sauce all wrapped up and baked to golden perfection.

This Jerk chicken calzone recipe is tasty and very easy to make. Great to slice up for a party or Sunday football. Serve with DivineKuizine Jerk Sauce for dipping sauce. Calzones, which are basically just pizzas folded into half-moons, are particularly awesome because they can handle a little more ooey-gooeyness than your standard pizza. They are my go-to when I’m craving something drippy and cheesy that I can’t eat with my hands or fork and knife.
