Chicken Broccoli Braid

chixbroccbraid

Not sure where my Mom got this recipe, probably from a magazine or Pampered Chef or something, but it is tasty!!  I love how colorful it is, and how easy it is to add extra veggies if you want.  I haven’t made this in a while, and I am glad I did…forgot how tasty it was!!  You could probably omit the mayo and use Greek yogurt instead, but just 1/2 cup isn’t all that bad.  I have decided that crescent roll dough is a great thing to cook with too…so versatile!  You could probably make this same sort of thing, but with a Mexican flare, using taco seasoning, green onion, bell pepper, black beans…possibilities are endless…
