Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Crescent Braid

This meal is so ridiculously easy. Nothing fancy, no frills. Just easy, fast, and delicious!

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Crescent Braid
Recipe slightly adapted from 3 Kids and Us

2 cans crescent rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups fresh broccoli, chopped small
1/2 cup mayonnaise

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.

Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

Yum! I've actually made something similar to this, though instead of cheddar cheese & mayo I used cream cheese and a bit of milk. Definitely going to give this variation a try!
