Talk about entertaining your guests. This braided chicken bread is super easy and looks so fancy.  Family and friends will think you spent lots of time making this, but it is such a simple recipe.  You can even make mini ones if you would like.  With kids back in school and parents trying to figure out quick meals this will definitely help.  If you’re feeling creative change some of the fillings with what you love.  This can also be turned into something sweet.


1 Rotisserie chicken, shredded for meat

(2) 8oz can crescent rolls

1 cup frozen broccoli

1 cup frozen corn

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon of water

salt & pepper, to taste

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

8oz package cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 cup mayo


Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.

Take a baking sheet and a piece of parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium to large bowl take shredded chicken, corn, broccoli, salt & pepper, cheddar cheese, mayo and cream cheese and mix everything together until well combined.

Next take the 2 crescent roll dough and roll it out on a flat surface. Sticking them together to form one big rectangle piece. Place the dough on the baking sheet. Take filling and place in the middle of the dough. Take the side pieces and cut them into even strips on both sides.

Starting at the top fold that piece in to cover the end. Next take the strips and start to fold them over like a braid. At the end fold that in to cover as well.

Take the egg and water and beat to make an egg wash. Brush it all over the braid. Place in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.

    Looks fabulous! I’ve made this recipe as chicken squares before using the crescents (2 per square) and I never thought to assemble it in this way. Great idea and super delicious too!
