  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Place large piece of heavy-duty foil on lower oven rack to catch any cheese that might bubble over.
  • 2
    In medium microwavable bowl, mix cream cheese, shredded cheese and milk. Microwave uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring until cheese is melted.
  • 3
    In large bowl, mix chicken, bacon, ranch dressing and 2 tablespoons of the chives; stir in cheese mixture until thoroughly combined. Transfer mixture to pie plate.
  • 4
    Separate dough into 8 triangles. On shortest side of each dough triangle, roll up one cheese stick piece until covered. Place dough on top of mixture in spoke pattern with points toward center and making sure cheese edges are within edges of pie plate.
  • 5
    In small bowl, mix melted butter and garlic powder. Brush mixture on top of crescent dough. Loosely cover crescent edges of pie plate with 2-inch wide strips of foil to make a ring.
  • 6
    Bake 20 minutes; remove foil, and continue baking 8 to 10 minutes or until filling is heated through and top is deep golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes. Before serving, garnish with remaining 1 tablespoon chives.

Expert Tips

  • If desired, serve with additional ranch dressing.
  • We prefer to use the refrigerated ranch dressing for flavor, but shelf-stable varieties will also work in this recipe.
  • Be sure to place the stuffed crust portion of crescent dough within the edges of the pie plate to help reduce potential for cheese to bubble over the edge into the oven.
