This Chicken Crescent Ring is so quick and easy you can have dinner on the table in about 30 minutes. Or slice it into smaller pieces and serve it as a hot appetizer.
I made this in a mad scramble to get dinner on the table and photographed quickly before I lost any natural light. I made mine half pesto and half pasta sauce since the 8 year old does not yet appreciate my homemade pesto sauce (the recipe’s here if you need one.) You could do barbecue sauce and cheddar cheese, ham and swiss, pepperoni and mozzarella, etc.
Be sure to use a baking mat, parchment or foil underneath this for easy clean up because the cheese and sauce are likely to ooze out. I think that is the best part, but I don’t enjoy cleaning my baking pan.
Serve it up with a salad or other vegetable on the side and you are done!
