Chicken 'n' Broccoli Braid Recipe

Beautiful braided breads really dress up events. It's full of chicken and veggies, and it's surrounded by a buttery crust. I love to make this simple, tasty dish for my family.—Dana Rabe, West Richland, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 cup chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Stir in mayonnaise. Unroll both tubes of crescent dough onto an ungreased baking sheet; press together, forming a 15-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Seal seams and perforations. Spoon filling lengthwise down the center third of dough.
  • 2. On each long side, cut dough 3 in. toward the center at 1-1/2-in. intervals, forming strips. Bring one strip from each side over filling; pinch ends to seal. Repeat. Pinch ends of loaf to seal.
  • 3. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is heated through. Yield: 8 servings.

"I skipped the fancy braid and just put one cresent roll on the bottom and one on the top and it still worked out awesome! I felt like it could be a little cheesier but I love cheese! =) It was yummo and so easy!"

"My family & I love this! It is so easy to make and has a wonderful taste. I only changed one thing: I used 1 tsp of Dill Weed instead of two. This is a must try!!"
