READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Lise in Indiana

A "calzone" for those watching their carb intake. Use a low-carb tortilla or lavash to wrap up the filling - just remember to add those grams when counting your carbs. They have NOT been added in the nutrition info here.

This was good -- though I used diced chicken instead of shredded, just because that is what I had. Served on a tortilla. Quite tasty and very simple.
