Easy Chicken, Cheddar and Broccoli Braid with video tutorial

It was over 15 years ago when I first used America’s beloved Crescent roll dough to a form a braid; a delicious, edible, almost gourmet like, braid that I could serve. Not only serve to guests because it was so impressively pretty, but also serve to my family on those days when “life” got in the way because it’s was that easy.

I could hardly stand it.

This makes a delicious sandwich filling or even chicken salad mixture

With four little blessings, five years old and under,  meal time wasn’t typically an hour of celebration in our home. It was survival mode.  Honestly, some days, it still is, but one recipe technique has stayed faithful through the decades and it’s the tiny tip that anyone can take dough and braid it to look like you ordered something from a restaurant.

Chicken, Cheddar and Broccoli Braids. One of our favorite quick meal techniques. So versatile, delicious and pretty.

Now if you want to be super fancy, you can make the crescent roll dough completely from scratch in the form of my Butterhorn roll recipe, but that’s not what  I was doing when I had four toddlers. 🙂

We didn’t even have time to transfer it from my Stoneware pan to a pretty serving dish, but it wasn’t necessary with how fast we gobbled it up.
