Lemon Herb Chicken Ring Recipe :: Pillsbury Crescent Rolls Weeknight Dinner Solution

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
1 lemon
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!
