Broccoli, Cheese and Chicken Loaf #Recipe

As a new mom, I experienced so many wonderful women in my life. At the time I belonged to a church group and we would get together a couple times a month and discuss our family, help each other with stenciling and share recipes. I can’t remember who gave me this recipe, but I hope I thanked them profusely because it is a recipe I make often for my family.

  • 2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
  • 2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • red peppers, roasted and diced (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  2. On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
  3. Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
  4. In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise and red peppers (optional)
  5. Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
  6. Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
  7. Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
  8. Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
