DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Use 2 quart bowl, mix all ingredients well except for egg white and crescent rolls; stir by hand.
  • Roll out crescent rolls onto cookie baking sheet; do not separate.
  • Seal seams.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut crescents into strips (starting on longest sides of cookie sheet, cut sides of dough into eight strips, about 1 1/2 inches wide and 3 inches long).
  • Spread chicken mixture down the center of the crescents.
  • Starting at one end, lift one strip of dough; twist one turn and lay across the top of the filling.
  • Repeat, alternating strips of dough to form a braid.
  • Fold the bottom edges of the dough up at the ends of braid.
  • Brush top of dough with a lightly beaten egg white, if desired.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown; cover with foil when baking or crust becomes too brown.
  • (Note: You can use 2 cans of the larger big and flaky crescent rolls (6 sections instead of eight) and make 2 smaller braids instead of one large braid (one can per braid) and it works fine. You use 1/2 of the chicken mixture for each braid).
