READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by weekend cooker

A beautiful chicken and pastry braid delivers both on taste and preparation. It's rich, creamy, full of vegetables and chicken and surrounded with a crispy, flaky crust.

Made this pretty much as given, although I did use shredded chicken breast & also substituted 1/4 teaspoon of lemon pepper for the salt, & we had a very satisfying main dish! Well worth making again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
