This is a recipe my mother in law got from a group she emails with that has evolved over time to this. I think it is an adultrated form of the chicken broccoli braid recipe from Pampered Chef, so i hope I'm not infringing :) Anyway, you can pretty much season it anyway you like. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Cook and shred chicken breast. You can boil it in water with a tablespoon of garlic, pepper and salt or cook it in a skillet with garlic and butter. However it gets cooked, I generally season mine during the process. Place shredded chicken in fridge to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to degree indicated on prepackaged rolls.
  3. In a large bowl mix all the spices into mayonnaise and chill in fridge.
  4. Chop bell peppers and broccoli into small pieces.
  5. Mix cool chicken, bell peppers, broccoli and cheese into the mayo mixture.
  6. On a cookie sheet, roll out dough. It comes out of the can as a rectangle; do not separate the rolls from each other. I use my fingers to gently push the perforated lines back together.
  7. Use both cans together to make one large rectangle, a single sheet of dough.
  8. 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 of uncut dough down the center, with the cut strips forming a fringe down each side. Make sure to keep an even number.
  9. Spread the chicken mixture along the center strip.
  10. Fold the short ends of the dough up over the edge of the mound.
  11. Now bring each strip, and its partner on the other side, up to meet on top of the chicken mixture mound.
  12. Pinch the ends together and fold down.
  13. Continue until you have a pretty loaf.
  14. Brush dough with the egg white and bake in the preheated oven 25-30 minutes.
  15. Don’t undercook or its soggy, its pretty wet bread.

This is, indeed, a pampered chef recipe and a great one. I used about 2 cups of chopped chicken, 1/2 cup peppers, and 1 cup chopped broccoli and 3/4 cup of mayo. Seasonings were fresh rosemary and dill and salt & pepper, which I had grilled the chicken with too. I also used 1/2 cup sharp cheddar and really it didn't need it. The braid was simple to do and I turned it into a wreath and garnished with fresh rosemary, holly branches, and sprinkled with dill. The candle was not my original idea, but lovely! This was simple, delicious and a stunning presentation.
