Chicken and Bacon Crescent Ring

I found this recipe on Pinterest. It is called, "Spicy Italian Crescent Ring." It looked delicious!
As I glanced at the ingredients, I knew my 16 year old son, Ryan, would not like it. Peppers, capocollo, etc.... So, I mixed it up with ingredients everyone would like. So, I will rename this recipe, "Chicken and Bacon Crescent Ring." I only used one can of Crescent Rolls since there are only 3 of us now at home. I am giving the recipe for a bigger ring that would feed about 6-8 people.

2 cans Crescent Rolls
1 package oven roasted Chicken lunch meat
8 slices of cooked bacon
6-8 Slices Provolone Cheese

Sauce Ingredients:
2/3 C. Mayonnaise
2 tsp. yellow mustard
2-3tsp. honey (you can use more or less depending on how you like the sweetness)

  • Heat oven to 375* F (350*F for dark or nonstick cooking sheet)
  • Mix the Sauce Ingredients together
  • Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 8 rectangles. On ungreased 12-inch pizza pan (I did spray a little Pam on the cookie sheet), arrange rectangles in ring so short sides of rectangles form a circle in center. (Dough will overlap; half of each rectangle will hang over edge of pan. Dough ring should look like a sun).
Liberally put sauce over all of the lower half of the dough towards the middle (not the part that hangs over the edges as this will be folded over). Layer Chicken, bacon and cheese on the dough toward the center. (The picture below is of the Spice Italian Crescent Ring which you can find on the Pillsbury.com website)
  • Bring each dough rectangle hanging over side of pan up over stacked filling, tucking dough under bottom layer of dough to secure it. Repeat around sandwich until entire filling is enclosed (some filling might show a little). 
  • Bake 18-22 minutes until golden brown. Mine only took the 18 minutes, but I did a smaller version.
  • I made a little extra sauce to dip the sandwiches in...delicious!!
  • I will definitely be making this again. It was quick, easy, and everyone enjoyed it!
