Chicken Sandwich Ring
2 packages Crescent Roll Dough - (8 oz. each)
1 cup Chicken Breast - cooked & chopped
6 slices Bacon, cooked crispy - crumbled
1 cup Monterey Jack Cheese - shredded
1 cup Mayonnaise - (not Miracle Whip)
2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 tablespoon Dried Parsley OR 2 tablespoons Fresh Parsley - chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons Green Onions - finely chopped
2 medium Roma Tomatoes - or other small tomatoes
1 medium Red or Yellow Bell Pepper
2 cups Lettuce - shredded
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mix mayonnaise, mustard,
parsley and onion. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix chicken, bacon, 3/4 cup of the cheese and 1/3 cup of the
mayonnaise mixture and mix well. Set aside. Open and unroll crescent roll dough,
and separate into triangles. Arrange triangles in a circle on a round baking
stone (or a greased pizza pan if you do not have a baking stone) with the wide
ends of triangles overlapping in the center and points hanging over outside
edge, leaving at least a 5-6 inch clear circle in the center of the stone (pan).
Spoon chicken mixture evenly onto dough, onto the wide ends of the triangles.
Wrap pointed ends of dough around chicken mixture, and tuck under the wide ends
of the dough, forming a closed ring with slits around the outside edge, where
filling shows through in places. Slice Roma tomatoes into enough wedges to place
one wedge in each open slit around the ring.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, and sprinkle
with remaining shredded cheese. Set aside.
Remove top from bell pepper, and clean out seeds and filaments which are inside.
Wash and dry pepper with a paper towel. If needed, slice thin pieces from bottom
of pepper to allow it to stand up like a cup or bowl, without wobbling. Fill
pepper with mayonnaise mixture, and place in center of sandwich ring, then fill
in the space between the pepper and the sandwich ring with the shredded lettuce.
Serve in wedges with the mayonnaise dip. This is a great appetizer, or as an
accompaniment with a soup or salad.
