Chicken and Sausage Holiday Wreath

Chicken and Sausage Holiday Wreath

A beautiful yet easy appetizer. You can easily use leftover chicken and whatever veggies you have on hand. This is just a spectacular looking appetizer, and here I have used sweet basil leaves and small pieces of red pepper to give it a festive holiday look.

Heat oil in a skillet, add sausage, and cook until no longer pink. Put in a large bowl.
Add all other ingredients, except the crescent rolls, mix well, cover and chill for one hour.
Meanwhile spray a 10 inch pizza pan with non stick spray.
Open the crescent rolls and arrange them in a circle on the pizza pan, long pointy end facing out, short fat ends overlapping.
Put scoops of about 3 rounded tablespoons all around the wreath on the widest part of the dough triangle.
Fold the long pointy ends back over the filling, and tuck in the center to keep it neat.
Bake in a pre heated 375┬░ oven until golden, maybe 20 minutes or so.
Serve hot.
Slice in sections of about 1 inches wide.
