Chicken Broccoli Crescent Ring

On the weekend we were invited out for a light after church dinner.  My sister in law Heidi was about to pop this in the oven so I quickly snapped a few pictures while she created this crescent ring in just a few minutes.  She has been making this for years and we've enjoyed it there several times. She covers a pizza pan with foil and there is virtually no clean up.

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, you can used canned or leftover chicken breasts
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 a sweet bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup cheddar or cheese of your choice, grated
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 teaspoons dill dressing mix
  • 2 packages whole wheat refrigerated crescent rolls
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Line a pizza pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  3. Put all the ingredients but the crescent rolls into a mixing bowl and stir together.
  4. Separate the crescent rolls and arrange overlapping the large sides of the triangle on the pizza pan.
  5. Spoon the filling in a circle over the dough that is overlapped and then fold the short end of the triangles to the center.  Tuck the ends underneath.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.  
  7. Serve with a crisp green salad.

  1. I make this same dish except a simpler version with just 4 ingredients for the filling: chicken, broccoli, shredded cheddar cheese and mustard. It's delish right out of the oven and sometimes I have it for breakfast, cold, the next morning. The mustard gives it a nice tang too. I've never known anyone to make this dish except me before. I changed it from a version which included ham and swiss cheese with the broccoli and mustard.

  3. What size pizza pan is being used? Knowing this will help in the layout.

  4. Just had it for dinner.....the platter is empty! And there were only 4 of us! It was awesome! I couldn't find dill dressing mix, so I substituted ranch dressing mix; it was good. Didn't know if I should have slightly cooked the broccoli, so I chopped it pretty small and it baked up really nice inside the ring. Still a little bit of crunch! Yum! A new favorite for our family! Thanks so much for sharing. That's a keeper! Marianne

  5. I too made this tonight... it was fabulous! I used an extra tbsp of the dill dressing mix and some extra mayo, and it was delicious. My family loved it.

  6. Susan ..I think it is just a standard size pizza pan that is most often purchased in stores. You'll get a sense pretty quick when you start to lay out the crescent dough triangles.

    I am so excited that some of you had success with this already today. .you readers are the best. .thank you for that feedback.

  7. This sounds wonderful! Once the weather cools down and I can use the oven without sweating, I'll make it! :)

  8. Maybe it's the part of the country that I live in, but I cannot find wheat crescent rolls! I bought the regular and plan on trying this today but I would love to have had the wheat.

  9. I have made this for years as well, but I believe it is adapted from a Pampered Chef recipe. I find it a good idea to do an egg wash on top to prevent it from browning too much before the inside is done. I get rave reviews any time I serve it!

  10. I made this dish, was so tasty! Everyone in my family loved it! I had a hard time forming the circle shape with the crescent dough though, so I made it in a long rectangle shape and layered dough on top, kind of like a pie, and it turned out just as great! I also added a bit of mustard. I will definitely make it again!

    Lovella, this looks lovely. Just wonder if have you ever made this with the epicure lemony dill dip mix? Would that work OK?

    Thanks,
    Shannon
