  • Directions:.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F Chop chicken and broccoli using food chopper; place in 2 quart batter bowl. Chop bell pepper using 5" utility knife; add to batter bowl. Press garlic over vegetable mixture using garlic press. Shred cheese using cheese grater and add to vegetable mixture; mix gently. Add mayonnaise, dill mix, and salt; mix well using scraper. Unroll 1 package of crescent dough; do not separate. Arrange longest sides of dough across width of 12" x 15" rectangle baking stone. Repeat with remaining package of dough. Using roller, roll dough to seal perforations. On longest sides of baking stone, cut dough into strips 1 1/2 inches apart, 3 inches deep using a pizza cutter (there will be 6 inches in the center for the filling). Spread filling evenly over middle of dough. To braid, lift strips of dough across mixture to meet in center, twisting each strip on turn. Continue alternating strips to form a braid. Tuck ends under to seal at end of braid. Brush egg white over dough using pastry brush. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake 25-28 minutes or until deep golden brown.

Questions & Replies

  2. This was delicious!! I have now made it 4 times in the last 2 months!! My hubby begs for it!!
  3. I used to be a Pampared Chef rep and loved using this recipe. However, my hubby hates the taste of dill. So to make a slight variation to the recipe, which I use to this day is using Tysons pre-cooked fajita chicken meat which is seasoned perfectly and using it and eleminating the dill. Everything else stays the same.
  4. This is always a favorite with the kids. I also add about 1/4 cup chopped onion and celery just for some added flavor.
  5. I love this recipe and I've been making it for years! It's a frequently requested recipe of my family. Thanks for putting it on Zaar! I didn't have to go through my Pampered Chef cookbooks to find it!


  1. For an awesome vegetarian option, use 1 cup cooked rice in place of the 2 cups cooked chicken.
