Chicken Club Ring

The Menu:
Chicken Club Ring



The Original Recipe:
This comes from Pampered Chef, but I had a friend make it, and I LOVED it! She used cherry tomatoes mixed, but I used my oven roasted tomatoes in this instead of the sliced tomatoes. My way of changing it follows this original recipe.

Chicken Club Brunch Ring


Ingredients

1 cup mayonnaise
 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, snipped
 1 tablespoon onions, finely chopped
 1 (10 ounce) cans white chicken meat, drained and flaked
 4 slices bacon, crisply cooked, chopped
 1 cup finely shredded swiss cheese
 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
 1 -2 large plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
 1 medium red bell peppers
 2 cups shredded lettuce

 Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a bowl, combine mayonnaise and mustard. Snip parsley. Chop onion. Add parsley and onion to mayonnaise mixture; mix well. In a 2 quart bowl, flake chicken with a fork. Chop bacon. Add bacon, 3/4 cup swiss cheese, and 1/3 cup of the mayonnaise mixture; mix well. Unroll crescent dough, separate into 16 triangles. Arrange triangles in a circle on a 13-inch baking stone with wide ends of triangles overlapping in the center and points toward the outside (there should be a 5-inch diameter opening in the center of the stone). Scoop the chicken mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangle.Bring outside points of triangle up over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at center or ring (filling will not be completely covered). Slice tomatoes, cut slices in half. Place 1 tomato half over filling between openings of ring. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove from oven, immediately sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup swiss cheese. Using a v-shaped cutter, cut around bell pepper. Separate halves; remove membrane and seeds. Fill with remaining mayonnaise mixture; place in center of ring. Arrange lettuce around the pepper.

The Way I Made It My Own:
I changed this quite a bit. I found the above recipe on food.com, but the one I have doesn't have quite as many things in it,. At any rate, I did change it, and it was delicious! I will probably always make it this way.

Chicken Club Brunch Ring


Ingredients

1/3 cup mayonnaise
 1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, snipped
1 clove garlic, chopped
 1 tablespoon green onions, finely chopped
 1 (10 ounce) cans white chicken meat, drained and flaked
 4 slices bacon, crisply cooked, chopped
 4 slices swiss cheese (more if you love swiss cheese!)
 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
 1/2 cup chopped roasted tomatoes (can use sundried tomatoes)

 Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a bowl, combine mayonnaise and mustard. Add parsley, garlic, and onion to mayonnaise mixture; mix well. Add bacon, tomatoes and chicken. Mix well.

Unroll crescent dough, separate into 16 triangles.

Arrange triangles in a circle on a 13-inch baking stone with wide ends of triangles overlapping in the center and points toward the outside (there should be a 5-inch diameter opening in the center of the stone). (I rotated the triangles with some facing inwards and some facing outwards.)

Scoop the chicken mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangle. Fold and break swiss cheese in half and add Swiss Cheese Slices to top of chicken mixture. Bring outside points of triangle up over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at center or ring (filling will not be completely covered).

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until deep golden brown.
