This recipe is a modified version of a Pampered Chef recipe. I was not fond of their use of kale so I changed it to spinach nor did I want to buy all the products they recommended, but were not actually necessary to achieve the same results. I also exchanged the chemically altered, prepackaged or reduced fat products to their more wholesome versions. :D
CALIFORNIA CHICKEN CLUB RING
3-4 cups baby spinach leaves, torn small
1 bunch green onions, trimmed and slices
12 ounces bacon, cooked and crumbled
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup shredded provolone or Jack cheese
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (optional - if omitting, double the mayonnaise)
3-4 cups small diced rotisserie chicken pieces
2-8 ounce cans crescent rolls
1 LARGE egg yolk
½ teaspoon water

- Unroll the crescent dough and separate it into 16 triangles.
- Arrange the wide ends about 1" away from the inner ring of the platter.

- Bring the points of the triangles up and over the filling, then tuck the points under the dough toward the center to form a ring.
