This is from the DVO recipe center. The note at the bottom of the directions states homemade biscuit dough works just as well.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine chicken, broccoli, pepper, garlic, and cheese in mixing bowl.
  2. In another small bowl, combine mayonnaise with dill and salt.
  3. Stir mayonnaise mixture into chicken mixture.
  4. Unroll packages of crescent dough; do not separate.
  5. Arrange dough onto baking sheets to form a rectangle the length and width of the pan.
  6. Roll dough together to seal perforations.
  7. On longest side of baking sheet, cut dough into strips 1½" apart and 3" deep using a pizza cutter (there will be 6" in center for filling).
  8. Spread filling evenly over middle of dough.
  9. To braid, lift strips of dough across mixture to meet in center, twisting each strip one turn, and then pinching together.
  10. Continue twisting and pinching strips to form a braid.
  11. Pinch ends together to seal at end of braid.
  12. If desired, brush egg white over dough and sprinkle with almonds.
  13. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 25-28 minutes or until deep golden brown.
  14. NOTE:.
  15. I mix up a batch of biscuit dough and roll it out about 1/4" thick in place of the crescents. It makes a heartier and delicious braid and saves me money.
