  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
  • 1 bag (12 ounce) frozen cheesy rice & broccoli
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 cans (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon white or black sesame seeds (or both!)
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 large bunch Italian Parsley


  • 1

  • 2
    Open one can of Pillsbury™ Crescent dough, unroll and split into two long pieces, then pinch all of the diagonal perforations together. Lay crescent dough on a large, parchment-lined baking sheet or pizza pan, in a large round wreath shape (with open center). Gently press the dough flat as needed.
  • 3
    Spoon chicken mixture on top of crescent dough round, using clean hand to form the filling into a little mound all the way around the crescent dough. Leave about 1/4 inch of dough showing on edges of ring.
  • 4
    Open the second can of crescent dough. Unroll, split into two long pieces, and pinch the diagonal perforations together as before. Gently lay the long strips of crescent dough over the filling, then pinch the edges of the bottom crescent dough and top crescent dough together on both sides.
  • 5
    Brush milk over the top of the crescent dough. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • 6
    Bake for 18-24 minutes, or just until the crescent dough is golden brown. Remove from oven, top with tomatoes and a bunch of parsley for a holiday flair. Serve, slice & enjoy!
