.:Mouth-Watering Wednesday - Crescent Roll Braids:.

I got a recipe for a Chicken Broccoli Braid from my friend, and altered it a bit to fit our family's tastes.

What you need:
2 packages of crescent rolls
1 can cream of chicken soup
cooked chicken
broccoli
shredded mozarella cheese

You want to start off by laying out your crescent rolls flat on a baking sheet, with each package making a rectangle down one side.

I sprinkled some cheese on the dough first.

In a bowl, combine your chicken, broccoli, and soup. Make sure everything gets coated with the soup.

Put your mixture down the middle of your dough.

Sprinkle more cheese over the chicken mixture.

Cut strips into your dough, and braid it into the center.

Sprinkle some cheese on top.

Bake for 10-15 minutes at 350.

Cut and serve!

This was delicious, and we loved it. I figure this is an easy recipe to make variations on!

We also made a pizza braid. We did the same thing, just using pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. It was super tasty!

Some other ideas I've thought of were a taco braid, using ground beef or chicken, cheese, tomatoes, olives, beans, etc. or a dessert braid using a fruit mixture and putting cream cheese frosting over the top after it was baked.

Really, there are lots of ways you could use this! Inexpensive and easy, with the opportunity for lots of variations! That's my kind of recipe!

  2. Oh that looks good, anything wrapped in crescent rolls is good to me. Maybe I could even stand to eat some broccoli! BUT I have to wait until next month, when hopefully I've down some weight and in my skinny jeans.
