Greek Chicken Stromboli

Hello my friends, and Happy #FRIDAY!!!
Today I am guest posting for Kathleen from Supper for One with this delicious fusion of Greek and Italian recipe. Kathleen is a new blogger, but very sweet and her blog is all about reviews, delicious recipes and tempting pictures. I hope you will visit her and check out the rest of my recipe, and of course, say Hi to my new friend Kathleen.

Let me tell you a few things about already well known Stromboli.
Stromboli is a big roll filled with various cheeses, Italian meats, capicola and bresaola or vegetables. The dough traditionally used is Italian bread dough and I used my homemade pizza dough, which is similar to bread dough.

Why did I crossed two countries and put into one dish, because I love chef Michael Symon’s Greek Chicken, and I tried to do it but without grilling and with chicken breasts? All I can tell ‘ya that this chicken rocked my world…I added in my bun with a drizzle of hot sauce, placed it on my salad, mixed it with my garlic-olive oil pasta and it was really good! This is one more way how to use this delicious marinated chicken.

Recipe Notes

You can use pre-made pizza dough and save yourself a time. You can fill the Stromboli with any filling that you desire, even Nutella. You do not have to make one big stromboli, you make made few smaller ones especially if you have more people. This amount of dough can make up to 3 smaller strombolis.
