I found a better description of how to braid this on allrecipes.com: 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.

I use sour cream in place of the mayonnaise. I also use frozen baby broccoli florets. I usually skip the almonds and egg wash. Very tasty and easy.
