Lemon Herb Chicken Ring
2 cups coarsely chopped cooked chicken
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, divided
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Pantry Italian Seasoning Mix
1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
2 packages (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
Preheat oven to 375°F. Coarsely chop chicken using Food Chopper.
Dice bell pepper using Utility Knife. Place chicken and bell pepper in
Classic Batter Bowl. Chop parsley using Pizza Cutter. Zest lemon using
Lemon Zester/Scorer to measure 1 teaspoon zest. Cut lemon into thin
slices; cut slices in half and set aside for garnish.
Add 2 tablespoons of the parsley, lemon zest, garlic pressed with
Garlic Press, mozzarella cheese, mayonnaise and seasoning mix to batter
bowl; mix using Small Mix 'N Scraper(R). Grate Parmesan cheese using
Deluxe Cheese Grater. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the cheese. Add
remaining cheese to chicken mixture; mix well.
Unroll crescent dough; separate into 16 triangles. Arrange
triangles, slightly overlapping, in a circle on Large Round Stone with
wide ends 4 inches from edge of baking stone. (Points will extend off
the edge of the baking stone.) Using Baker's Roller(TM), roll wide ends
of dough toward center to create a 5-inch opening.
Spoon chicken mixture evenly over dough in a continuous circle.
Bring points of triangles up over filling and tuck under dough at
center to form a ring. (Filling will show.) Sprinkle remaining Parmesan cheese
over ring. Bake 28-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven;
garnish with lemon slices and remaining parsley.
