Broccoli, Cheese & Chicken Braid
1 cup chicken, cooked and chopped
1/2 cup broccoli, fresh, chopped
1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (8 oz. pkg.) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 egg white, lightly beaten, optional
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl except the crescent rolls and egg white. Remove crescent rolls from package and unroll it on a sheet pan length-wise. Do not break it apart. Spread the chicken mixture down the middle of the dough length-wise. Use knife to cut one inch strips on the long sides of the dough, cutting away from the mixture. To braid, lift strips of dough across the top of the mixture to the middle. Alternate strips from each side and press down slightly so they stick to each other. Pinch ends together at the end of the braid. Brush egg white over dough.
Bake at 375 degrees for 17-24 minutes or until deep golden brown. Double the recipe for larger amounts.
