How to make a Broccoli Chicken Braid

Before you get started on this delicious chicken broccoli braid dinner, you need to be prepped!

First, preheat oven to 375 degrees F

On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of pillsbury crescent rolls length wise to form a long rectangle.

If you use a counter, the crescent rolls may stick so do not skip this step.

Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough, which will be the base of your bread crust.

In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise. If you want a more homemade taste, you can precook up chicken or boil it. If you are in a hurry, using canned chicken that is drained is just fine.

Spread your chicken and broccoli 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.

This will allow a nice golden crust.

Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown, cut and serve!

Also, this works great for a taco braid with crescent roll too!
