Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid

recipe from

Remember when your parents told you not to play with your food? Well, I am here to tell that is OK. In fact, it's fun and everyone should give it a try. Case in point, this bread braid. I had fun putting this together and it looks snazzy too. The kids might even enjoy helping!

2 cans crescent rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli pieces, steamed
1/2 cup mayo
1 egg yolk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

On a parchment lined or sprayed cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescent rolls lengthwise to form a long rectangle. 

Press seams together to form one layer of dough.

In a large bowl, combine cooked chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayo.

Spread mixture evenly over the center of the dough to form a log.

Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1" apart down each side of the dough.

Fold the dough strips over the top of the mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.

Brush the top of the bread with egg yolk.

Bake  28 - 30 minutes or until golden brown.
