Ingredients

  • 2 containers Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • 2 cups cooked chicken breasts chopped or shredded
  • 1 cup cooked broccoli
  • 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. italian seasoning
  • 1 egg white beaten
  • slivered almonds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Cover a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine chicken, broccoli, cheese, mayo, salt, garlic powder and italian seasoning in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • Spread out the two packages of crescent rolls on the parchment paper, putting one on top and one on the bottom to make a rectangle shape. Press the edges together to seal, smoothing out as best as you can.
  • Spoon chicken and broccoli mixture down the middle of the rectangle.
  • Cut horizontally across the crescent rolls in 1 inch strips and braid over filling, left side and then right, repeating until reaching the bottom. (See picture steps above)
  • Brush top with egg white and sprinkle with slivered almonds. Bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown and heated through.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut into strips and serve. Enjoy!
