Chicken Club Wrap

Rondell and I really enjoyed watching 3 hours of Lost last night. I have SO many questions, but that is not the point of this post...so, I'll move on.
We decided to have an appetizer while watching and so I made chicken club wrap. The first time I had this is when my friend Erin would make it and I was immediately hooked (and mine still never tastes like hers...oh well). The recipe comes from Pampered Chef, but I don't follow the recipe to a T as you will see below.
Chicken Club Wrap
2 cans of crescent rolls
3 cups coarsely chopped cooked chicken (I usually boil mine for about 15 - 20 minutes and then shred)
4 slices of bacon, crisply cooked, drained and chopped (I cheated and used Oscar Mayer's real bacon bits)
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley (OK, I've never used this...didn't realize till now that it was in the recipe)
1 garlic clove, pressed (I use Tastefully Simple's Garlic, Garlic season)
2 plum tomatoes, sliced (I don't use this because we're not big tomato fans)
1 egg white, lightly beaten (OK...so I stray a little...I don't use this either, but I'm sure it makes it pretty. I just always think "well, what will I do with the yolk?"...anyways.)
In a bowl, combine chicken, mayo, mustard, cheese (saving a little for the top if you'd like), parsley, and garlic.

Take the crescent rolls and make a ring (shown above). Looks kind of like a sunflower!

Spoon mixture on top of dough. This is when you'd add the tomatoes on top if you wish to have them. My wrap is tomato free!

Wrap the ends (points) around the mixture and tuck under middle of ring (I'm kind of at a loss of how to explain this, so I hope I make sense). This is when you'd brush with egg white and sprinkle with more Swiss cheese if you'd like to do that.

Bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes (depending on your oven). You can slice it and leave it in the ring or plate the pieces. Ron and I just sliced and ate...yum.

Enjoy!

Mmmm... Looks like a Pampered Chef recipe! ;) We love the "ring" with the taco filling. You did a great job explaining how to do it...the pictures were very helpful!

I am soo glad you posted this! I had this once at a Pampered Chef party and it was delicious! I never made it because I didn't have the round pan like they used and didn't know I could use a rectangular one! I definitely need to make this now! Thanks again!

I had never heard of this, but that sounds good...amazing considering how picky I am. Good idea about doing it as a taco ring too. Hmmm.....

This looks great and I will have to try it. You are cracking me up with the whole, "...but I didn't do this..." or "...I left this part off..." So funny!

I thought about you this morning when I woke up to our a.m. radio DJs discussing last night's LOST finale.

MMMMM those look so good to this preggo lady! Can't you just stick it in the mail to me??? Pretty please???

Katie said...

Oh you know I like anything with bacon! Is it real mustardy tasting? ER is not a fan of mustard. She will eat ketchup on anything including fruit, yuck...but mustard not so much.

Do you add the bacon in the chicken mixture or sprinkle on top? Don't want to leave the bacon out! haha
