    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This delicious twist on the chicken & broccoli crescent ring was a contest winner submitted on one of Emeril's Cooking with Kids specials. A little boy named Noah came up with this version, which I tried immediately and loved. I added jalapenos and more garlic to mine. I use leftover rotisserie chicken, skinned and boned or freshly poached chicken breast meat in this. Also NOTE: The original version called for only 1 can of crecsent rolls and made 1 wreath. However, I found there was a lot of filling, enough for 2 wreaths. I made 1 wreath and saved the extra filling to bake as a separate casserole (bake for the same amount of time and serve with crusty rolls on the side).

      I tried out this recipe last night, it was amazing! I did make a few modifications though. I used 2 packages of crescent rolls instead of one; there is definitely too much filling for one pack. I did not attempt to shape them into a wreath, I just laid them out on a baking sheet. I also added canned black beans (drained) and corn in place of broccoli to give it more of a southwestern flair. I couldn't find the Southwest Seasoning from the recipe at my grocery store, so I used Tastefully Simple Fiesta Party Dip Mix instead. (Its just a blend of seasonings that you mix with sour cream to make a dip. I use it a lot as a spice.) I did not use the eggwash, and sprinkled a little bit of extra cheese on top.

      It was absolutely delicious. I think the only thing I might do differently in the future is to cook it in a casserole dish instead of on a baking sheet. As it cooked the filling spilled out a little and the ones closer to the edges of the baking sheet spilled over onto the oven rack.

      My husband loved this. He recommends a side of ranch dressing for dipping or drizzling over. Great Recipe!!!
