Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Crescent Braid


You will need the following ingredients:

2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls

2 cups chicken chunks, cooked

2 cups cheddar cheese

2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped

1/2 cup light mayonnaise

1 egg yolk

Fresh rosemary

Prepare and bake like this:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle. Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough. In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise. Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.


Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough. Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.


Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top. Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy!
