Chicken & Broccoli Ring

**Remember the late 90's and how popular Pampered Chef parties were and how they would always make some kind of ring. Well, it just popped into my head tonight and so I tried my best to remember one that I liked. This one was good, but maybe in my older age, I just like things with more flavor where this was more simple, but this should still give you some ideas on trying some different flavors in it. I remember they had a taco one with beans, taco meat & cheese. Then you would serve it after it was cooked with the lettuce and other garnishments over the top. Another idea would be to do one like a pizza calzone.**

**I did a search for this recipe online and I saw one that had mayonaise added and slivered almonds. The mayonaise is probably just what this needs to make it a little richer, and the slivered almonds would be so much better than the water chestnuts. I would probably add 1/4 -1/3 cup mayonaise. :)**

Chicken Wreath

1/2 cup peppers, chopped
1/2 cup broccoli, chopped
1/4 cup water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
6 oz. cooked chicken breast, chopped
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 (8 oz.) pkg. refrigerated crescent rolls

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Chop pepper, broccoli, water chestnuts, onion and chicken. Combine all ingredients except crescent rolls in medium bowl. (I sauteed my peppers onion and brocoli first to bring out some flavor.)

Unroll crescent rolls and arrange triangles in a circle on a cookie sheet with the wide part of the triangle being the center of the circle and the points going out. It will look like a sun. ( See picture above ) After you have arranged the rolls, I pushed mine with my hand a little in the center to create a larger area to scoop the filling onto. After I pushed the centers more, the circle in the midded ended up being about 2" or smaller. Scoop filling mixture onto the middle part of the circle. Fold points of triangle over filling into the center. (Filling will not be completely covered.) Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool before serving.

I didn't know if you knew your blog page looks like it got kinda funky in the design/layout. Just in case no one told you!

Thanks Megan. When I go in to the page, it all looks fine, except it did take longer for the colored background to appear. It stayed white for longer that time. My husband said it might be your browser, but he will check things later when he gets home. Thanks again!

It looks kinda funky on my computer also. We really like the taco ring also.
