Italian Chicken Crescent Ring   Back to Recipes

Our Italian Chicken Crescent Ring is a cheesy utensil-free appetizer, as pretty as it is delicious, perfect for entertaining!

  • 4 ounces cream cheese (half 8-ounce package), softened
  • 2 ½ cups chopped cooked chicken (1/2-inch pieces)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon basil 


Heat oven to 375 degrees. In small bowl, mix cream cheese, oregano and basil until smooth. Mix in chicken and shredded cheese, just until combined.

Unroll the can of dough; separate into triangles. On ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange triangles in ring so short sides of triangles form a 5-inch circle in center. Dough will overlap. Dough ring should look like a sun.

Spoon cream cheese mixture on the half of each triangle closest to center of ring. Top with blue cheese crumbles.

Bring each dough triangle up over filling, tucking dough under bottom of layer of dough to secure it. Repeat around ring until entire filling is enclosed (some filling might show a little).

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until dough is golden brown and thoroughly baked. Cool 5 to 10 minutes before cutting into serving slices.
