Chicken & Broccoli or Chicken & Spinach Braid

This is a pretty versatile recipe... I have made a Chicken and Broccoli and Chicken and Spinach Braid, by just changing out the vegetable.  It is really good either way! 

 Bake at 350 degrees F
for 30 - 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown

Ingredients in the Braid are as follows:

Chicken ~ 4 large breast pieces ~ seasoned and baked
(salt, pepper, onion powder, 2 cloves garlic smashed and smeared on the breasts)

I cover my cookie sheet with tin foil and then put a slight bit of olive oil on the pan around the chicken breasts, then bake for 20- 30 minutes until baked thru.  If large breasts are used fillet them so they will bake faster, then chop chicken finely (about 1/2 in pieces). 

After baking the chicken and it has cooled, I cut it into smaller pieces.  You can either cut it into 1/2 cubes or shred the chicken into small bit size pieces. 

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls ~ 2 packages

Broccoli Florets or Spinach ~ 1 box package frozen

Red Bell Pepper ~ 1 large, chopped fine

Cheese ~ shredded cheddar & mozzarella blend or cheddar & parmasen

Sometimes we add Jalapeno Pepper Flakes, the seasoning gives the braid a nice bite.  Make sure not to add to much of the Jalapeno Pepper Flakes!    



I use Victoria Gourmet Seasonings alot in my day to day cooking and baking. They have such great flavor!  Here is the website if you would like to check out them for yourself....
