Meet the Sullivans: Chicken Broccoli Ring

Chicken Broccoli Ring

How pretty is this?
We really liked this recipe. Keith even said, as I was snapping pictures of the braid, that it looked great. This would be a nice dish for a little luncheon. We served it with a small green salad on the side, but a fruit salad would go nicely too.

INGREDIENTS
2 packages (8 ounces ea.) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 cup cooked chicken
3/4 cup coarsely chopped broccoli (I steamed mine for just a bit before chopping)
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp dill
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 egg white, lightly beaten
2 tbsp slivered almonds 

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Unroll crescent rolls; separate into 8 triangles.  Arrange triangles, slightly overlapping, in a circle on a baking stone (you could also use a cookie sheet) with a 3-inch opening in the center.  If you would like to see a nice step by step please click here.

2. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, broccoli, cheese, bell pepper, mayo, dill, garlic, salt, and pepper and mix well.

3. Using a ice cream scoop, scoop filling evenly over dough in a continuous circle. Bring points of triangles up over filling and tuck under dough at center to form a ring. The filling will show through the gaps in the points.  Lightly brush dough with egg white; sprinkle with almonds.  Bake 25-30 minutes or until deep golden brown.

I know there is noting new or interesting about using crescent rolls in recipes, but I'm still so in love with them.  I'm on the hunt for more crescent rolls ideas, so if you have them please send them my way!

I've made this recipe many times before. It's the first Pampered Chef recipe that my Mom was given years and years ago. It's a classic!
