Here's the recipe for Lemon Herb Chicken Ring. If you have a Pampered Chef cook book, you will find it there, as well.
2 cups coarsley chopped, cooked chicken
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
3 TBSP. chopped, fresh parsley, divided
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. Intalian seasoning
1/2 cup grated, fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
2 pkgs. refrigerated crescent rolls
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl, combine chicken, bell pepper, 1 tsp. lemon zest from lemon, 2 TBSP. parsley, pressed garlic, mozzarella cheese, mayo and seasoning, mixing well. Grate Parmesan cheese. Reserve 2 TBSP, add remaining cheese to chicken mixture. Mix well.
Unroll crescent dough; separate into triangles. Arrange triangles in a circle on a large round pizza stone with wide ends overlapping in center and points toward outside. (There should be a 5 inch diameter opening in center.)
Spoon chicken mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangle. Bring points of triangles up over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at center of ring. (Filling will not be completely covered.) Springle remaining Parmesan cheese over ring. Backe 28-30 min. or until golden brown. Garnish with remaining chopped parsley and lemon slices.
