Chicken and Broccoli Braid

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

I got this out of a magazine several years ago. It is delicious when it's hot, or cold the next day (if there is any left). It slices nicely and you can microwave a cold slice a little and it will perk right up.

This was SO delicious. I ended up using Colby-Jack cheese, and it turned out phenomenal. Very rarely do I find a recipe that's so easy, yet so yummy. It made plenty for my family of 5, and I still had enough for another meal to freeze. Served with plain white rice on the side. Perfect.
