Did you know that Pillsbury Crescent Rolls can offer you an easy weeknight dinner solution? My mom once made this easy family dinner recipe that we all loved. So, I wanted to share it with you! It was all the rage when she made it and I have to say it was a big hit in our home as well!
Lemon Herb Chicken Ring
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, divided
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 cup (2 ounces) Parmesan cheese, divided
2 packages (8 ounces each) Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
Preheat oven to 375°F. Coarsely chop cooked chicken using a food processor. Add in 2 tablespoons of the chopped parsley, lemon zest, pressed garlic, mozzarella cheese, mayonnaise and seasoning mix. Mix ingredients together in the food processor. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the cheese. Add remaining cheese to chicken mixture; mix well. Cut lemon into thin slices; set aside for garnish.
Unroll crescent dough; separate into 16 triangles. Arrange triangles, slightly overlapping, in a circle on a round pizza stone with wide ends 4 inches from edge of baking stone. (Points will extend off the edge of the baking stone.) 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. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan cheese over ring.
Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; garnish with lemon slices and remaining parsley.
Yields 8 servings. Adapted from recipe found at Razzle Dazzle Recipes. We just loved this simple meal. It is just perfect for a quick weeknight family dinner! It is filling yet is bursting with flavor. The lemon is a perfect compliment to the cheese and herbs. It is just delightful. Try it one night for yourself!
