Savory Chicken Vegetable Strudel

Meet the Cook: If you're looking for a way to "sneak" vegetables into a dish, try this one that looks fancy without the fuss. Now that our two sons are grown, I make it for my husband and me. It is definitely a recipe for company as well, though. -Michele Barneson, Washburn, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min.
  • Makes
    12 servings


  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 large egg white, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds


  • In a large bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients. Unroll crescent dough and place in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan; press seams and seal together, forming a 15x12-in. rectangle (dough will hang over edges of pan).
  • Spread filling lengthwise down the center of the dough. On each long side, cut 1-1/2-in- wide strips 3-1/2-in. into center. Starting at one end, alternate strips, twisting twice and laying at an angle across filling. Seal ends.
  • Brush dough with egg white; sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into slices; serve warm.

    Great way to use up leftover chicken! I cooked the broccoli and carrots for a short time first. Delicious. I will definitely make this again
