Dimensional deconstruction of 5D SQCD with general nc, n f and kCS gives rise to 4D N = 1 gauge theories with large quivers of SU(nc) gauge factors. We construct the chiral rings of such [SU(nc)]N theories, off-shell and on-shell. Our results are broadly similar to the chiral rings of single U(nc) theories with both adjoint and fundamental matter, but there are also some noteworthy differences such as nonlocal meson-like operators where the quark and antiquark fields belong to different nodes of the quiver. And because our gauge groups are SU(nc) rather than U(nc), our chiral rings also contain a whole zoo of baryonic and antibaryonic operators.
