Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Beautiful braided crescent roll with chicken and broccoli.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pre-cook chicken in oven at 350 °F (175 °C) for 20 minutes. Dice chicken into cubes, should be 2-3 cups.
  2. Adjust oven to 375 °F (190 °C). In a large bowl, toss together chicken, broccoli, red bell pepper, garlic, mayonnaise, dill weed and salt.
  3. Unroll crescent roll dough, and arrange flat on a medium baking sheet. Pinch together perforations to form a single sheet of dough.
  4. Using a knife or scissors, cut 1" wide strips in towards the center, starting on the long sides. There should be a solid strip about 3" wide down the center, with the cut strips forming a fringe down each side.
  5. Spread the chicken mixture along the center strip. Spread cheese over the top of mixture (sharp cheddar cheese is also good).
  6. Fold the side strips over chicken mixture, alternating strips from each side. Pinch or twist to seal.
  7. Brush braided dough with the egg white, and press almond slivers gently into top of dough. Bake in the pre-heated oven 25 to 28 minutes, or until golden brown.

this sounds delicious, however I think I may have to skip this idea at this time. The carbs are higher that I can afford at this time. I'm regulating my blood sugar issues at this time. But I may be willing to try it on family members.

So delicious! Next time, I'll be adding chopped onions & celery. I might try celery salt, garlic &/or basil as well. Substituting the mayo with cream of mushroom sounds good too. Oh the possibilities...

Very, very good. Thank you for sharing. I opted out on the salt, egg white, and almonds,garlic, and mayo. But, I did use cream of mushroom instead. Yummy, Thank you again. We will be having lunches for the next few days :)

I loved this recipe! And whats even better, so did my husband! I was out of peppers, so I used some red onion instead. It tasted almost like chicken salad...one of my favorites! and the dough was quite buttery and rich tasting.

This recipe is great! I used it as a foundation for what I had in the fridge & built-on from there. I used spinach instead of broccoli & onions & basil instead of bell pepper & dill. I also used my own homemade sourdough that I make from scratch - it is less calories & better for you- you never get clogged-up- It turned out fantastic ! Now I have something Lovely to make with my sourdough instead of just the same old rolls & bread. Thank You !!!

I used Whole Wheat Bread instead of the crescent rolls. It cam out not to bad. A little bland though.

Looks like the Chicken Bake they sell at Costco.
This looks very good, but it is 22 weight watcher points for 1 serving. That is way more than I am willing to eat for 1 serving. Too bad

It's a lower fat version of the original recipe! When I make it I don't use the recipe and usually forget the cheese or use fat free cheddar and skip the egg white, salt, and almonds. one of the only ways I can get my kids to eat their much needed veggies!

It sounds really good...but I am trying to not use any breads for at least my first 2 weeks. I'm a carb-aholic! I might try the recipe as a stuffed chicken breast.
