  • In a bowl, combine all ingredients, except the crescent rolls and egg wash.
  • IF MAKING INTO A WREATH: Divide crescent rolls into 8 equal triangles.
  • Arrange triangles on lightly greased round baking sheet (or pizza stone)in a circle with the skinny pointed ends facing out (like a sun).
  • Spoon chicken mixture around the ring, mainly on the wider parts of the dough, leaving the points exposed.Fold the pointed ends over the chicken mixture, pressing the points down to seal (so it now looks like a wreath).
  • Brush with egg wash then proceed with the baking instructions.
  • IF MAKING AS CASSEROLE:
  • Sprread filling into a lightly greased casserole dish, cover with foil.
  • TO BAKE EITHER TYPE: Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown, removing foil from casserole in the last 5 minutes.
