Welcome to my recipe blog! I started it when my brother, Mark, moved away and was in need of some recipes....or so I thought.... The goal is to post recipes that can be made quickly, easily, and inexpensively. If you have something to contribute, please let me know and I will be glad to add it!!

Chicken Ring

Ok...here is a recipe for one of our family's FAVORITE recipes. I even took pictures, so you would know how to make the actual ring.

This one's for you, Krystina!

Chicken Ring
1 - 1 1/2 Lbs. Boneless Chicken Breast
1/3 Cup Mayo (or Miracle Whip)
1 Tsp. Dijon Mustard
1 Cup Swiss Cheese, Shredded
2 Tsp. Parsley Flakes
1 Garlic Clove, pressed or minced
1 Tomatoe, halved and sliced
2 Packages Crescent rolls

Preheat oven to 350 degress.

Cook chicken (duh!...but I do have a keen grasp on the obvious) and chop into eentsy teentsy pieces using a food chopper (love that tool!!), food processor, or by other means that hopefully inovlve sharp instruments. Be sure not to chop your fingers off. Stir in all ingredients EXCEPT FOR the crescent rolls and 1/4 cup of the Swiss Cheese.

Unroll the Crescent Rolls (again with the obvious....I know....) and arrange on a Pizza Stone or cookie sheet or something that can go into the oven. There are several different ways to do this. The easiest is to line up the wide end of the roll with the points facing outward. The rolls should overlap slightly and form a ring...hence the recipe name Chicken RING :o) It should look like this:

Press the wide part of the tringles together so they kind of seal a little bit. Then, for the filling -- just fill 'er up. Kind of scoop the chicken mixture around the edge of the ring and place the tomato slices on top....like this:

Then, fold the tips of the triangle over and tuck under the other edge of the ring. Next, brush on the egg whites (Mom doesn't know why I took this pic....but I think it's fun).....

.....and sprinkle with the reserved Swiss Cheese. It will look like this:

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately. YUM!!
