  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees F).
  2. In a large bowl, toss together chicken, broccoli, red bell pepper, garlic, Cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, dill weed, salt, almonds and onion.
  3. Unroll crescent roll dough, and arrange flat on a medium baking sheet. Pinch together perforations to form a single sheet of dough. Using a knife or scissors, cut 1 inch wide strips in towards the center, starting on the long sides. There should be a solid strip about 3 inches wide down the center, with the cut strips forming a fringe down each side. Spread the chicken mixture along the center strip. Fold the side strips over chicken mixture, alternating strips from each side. Pinch or twist to seal.
  4. Brush braided dough with the egg white. Bake in the preheated oven 25 to 28 minutes, or until golden brown.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This is a favorite in our house - my boyfriend never can seem to get enough. Instead of dried dill, I use 2TBSP of FRESH dill - this makes a big difference, I believe. I also like to use PIZZA...

My family loved this recipe. I followed it exactly, except for the dill and the dough directons. I reduced the amount to 1/2 tsp. I like dill, but not love it! And for the braid, I cut the s...

I made mine into a wreath using 1 package of Grands crescent rolls. I felt the recipe called for Way too much dill. I used only 1/2 teaspoon and was just right. Next time I will slightly cook...

This was an excellent recipe. When making for a party, I make the filling a day ahead then just put it together and bake. I have made this many times and haven't had a problem with doughiness. ...

Yum! Make a couple changes: omitted the bell pepper (didn't have any) and cut the dill a little bit. Also, cooked the chicken with the onions and garlic with some poultry seasoning, then added...
