This is one of the quickest chicken rings you can make! I took a short cut and got rotisserie chicken. It is very delicious and doesn’t require any cooking. You can find it in a grocery store and pull off the meat. If you have leftovers, you can use them the next night for another delicious dinner.
This ring is a classic recipe with a simple technique that is very quick to pull off. It always looks very fancy and you can experiment with fillings and sauces. Even if you use the same ingredients as I did, you will have many ways to use them. You can cut the dough to make little bites or form a rectangle. Use your imagination and let’s start cooking!
Chicken party ring
When you need a party meal to please a big crowd, this simple chicken ring is a must have! Tender chicken and creamy vegetables make the ring irresistible. I add cheddar cheese, crescent rolls and tortilla chips for an unbeatable, savory flavor. You can cut the ring in small portions to make a great appetizer. If you don't want to cook in the kitchen on the party day, you can meal prep the ingredients and assemble the ring in no time at all.
- 12 oz chopped cooked chicken
- 60 ml ripe olives
- 225 ml Monterey Jack cheese or cheddar cheese (you can use them both)
- 225 ml green chilies, chopped
- 125 ml mayonnaise
- 15 ml Southwestern Seasoning Mix
- 1 lime
- 2 plum tomatoes
- 200 ml tortilla chips, crushed
- 2 packages crescent rolls
- 225 ml salsa
- 225 ml sour cream
Preheat the oven to 375F. Pull off the chicken, place it in a bowl. Add seasoning, mayonnaise, chilies and cheese. Chop a tomato, slice the lime. Take a juicer, juice ½ lime. You need 15 ml of lime juice that you will use for garnish. Add tomato and juice to the chicken bowl.
Place 30 ml of tortilla chips in a bowl; add the rest to the chicken. Mix with a spatula until all ingredients are combined. Sprinkle the rest of the chips on a cutting border. Unroll the rolls, the sticky side should face down. Press the dough slightly so the chips stick to it. Separate the dough into triangles.
Place triangles in a way that they point toward inside and the wide ends overlap in the center. You should have an opening in the center. Take a scoop and place the chicken onto the wild end of every triangle. Take the triangle points and bring them up over the chicken. Tuck the ends at center. The parts of the filling won't be covered, that's fine. Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. The ring should become browned.
Cut the second tomato in 8 wedges. Cut the line in 4 pieces. Place the garnish between the ring openings. Serve with sour cream salsa or your favorite sauce. Refrigerate leftovers for 3 days.
