Beautiful braided crescent roll with chicken and broccoli.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups diced, cooked chicken meat
  • 1 cup fresh broccoli, chopped
  • ½ cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill weed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 egg white, beaten

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees F).
  2. 2 In a large bowl, toss together chicken, broccoli, red bell pepper, garlic, Cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, dill weed, salt, almonds and onion.
  3. 3 Unroll crescent roll dough, and arrange flat on a medium baking sheet. Pinch together perforations to form a single sheet of dough. Using a knife or scissors, cut 1 inch wide strips in towards the center, starting on the long sides. There should be a solid strip about 3 inches wide down the center, with the cut strips forming a fringe down each side. Spread the chicken mixture along the center strip. Fold the side strips over chicken mixture, alternating strips from each side. Pinch or twist to seal.
  4. 4 Brush braided dough with the egg white. Bake in the preheated oven 25 to 28 minutes, or until golden brown.

  1. I really was so beautiful BUT...I've made it twice. The first time even though I checked it ten minutes early it was burnt. The second time I set timer EXTRA early. Looked beautiful but lacked flavor. My kids are a bit picky but even I and hubby were having trouble finishing our portion. Most - Read more ...
  2. I have been making this for years and so glad I found the recipe on here too!! A few changes that I do: steam broccoli before I like to season and boil my chicken to cook it although we have grilled it before and it comes out just as yummy use 1 red bell pepper - Read more ...
  3. This is a favorite in our house - my boyfriend never can seem to get enough. Instead of dried dill I use 2TBSP of FRESH dill - this makes a big difference I believe. I also like to use PIZZA DOUGH instead of the rolls - those just never seemed appealing to me. I cook - Read more ...
  4. My family loved this recipe. I followed it exactly except for the dill and the dough directons. I reduced the amount to 1/2 tsp. I like dill but not love it! And for the braid I cut the strips AFTER I placed the chicen on the dough not before as directed in the recipe. See - Read more ...
  5. This recipe was awesome! I made a boo-boo tho and didn't form the braid on the pan so I kinda screwed it up as I had to transfer it to the pan and it got a bit messed up in the process. I substitued some of the ingredients to what I had on hand. I - Read more ...
  6. The first time I made this the center dough was not cooked completely. Second time I made it I really streched it out and it turned out perfect. Just the right amount of ingredients for every bite! It looks so fancy when the top is golden brown your guests will be impressed.
  7. This is always a favorite with my husband. I have made this many times using a variety of vegetables each time. I use more cheese than is called for and slightly less mayo (just enough to keep the mixture moist). I also use less dill and sprinkle basil over the top before baking. I would - Read more ...
  8. I made mine into a wreath using 1 package of Grands crescent rolls. I felt the recipe called for Way too much dill. I used only 1/2 teaspoon and was just right. Next time I will slightly cook the broccoli first. I don't like it so crunchy. This makes a beautiful looking dish to impress - Read more ...
  9. This was an excellent recipe. When making for a party I make the filling a day ahead then just put it together and bake. I have made this many times and haven't had a problem with doughiness. Check your oven if you have a problem-it's probably too hot. P.S. I'm sick of reviewers pushing their - Read more ...
