  • 1 cup of fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 a red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 a green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Hand operated chopper
  • Cutting board

Step 2: Prepare Veggies

  2. Cut both bell peppers and onion in half

  3. Then remove stems and seeds from bell peppers

  4. Remove outer most layer from the cut in half onion

  5. Cut broccoli florets off of its main stem

Step 3: Chop the Vegetables With the Chopper

  1. Take the clean and cut vegetables and use the hand operated chopper to chop them
  2. Once chopped add the chopped vegetables into the large mixing bowl

Step 4: Chop the Cooked Chicken With the Chopper

  1. Warning: Make sure Chicken is fully cooked before using chopper and mixing with other ingredients
  2. You can cook the chicken either by microwave, baking, or using a frying pan
  3. Place the two chopped chicken breasts into large mixing bowl with chopped vegetables

Step 5: Non-chopped Ingredients

  1. Add ½ cup of mayo into large mixing bowl
  2. Then add the 4 ounces of Shredded Cheddar Cheese into the large mixing bowl (half a bag of cheese)
  3. Add ½ tablespoon into large mixing bowl

Step 6: Mix All of the Ingredients Together

Step 7: Dough Preperation

  1. Open up first crescent roll package and place dough on cooking sheet

  3. Press together all of the crevices and parting lines in the dough

Step 8: Now Place Ingredient Mix in the Center of the Dough

Step 9: Braiding the Chicken

  1. Take a knife and cut lines perpendicular to the ingredient mixture centered on the dough, and have the cuts be spaced roughly 1 inch apart
  2. Once dough has been cut you will need to take the first cut piece of dough on the right side and twist it (braid) to the center of dough (Image 3 above)
  3. Then you will take the first cut piece of dough on the left side and braid it over top the right side piece in the center of braid. (Image 4 above)
  4. You will continue this till you get to the last pieces on each side, once you have reached this state you will remove the right side last piece of dough and place it in front of the braid (Images 5 and 6) to keep mixed ingredients inside of braid
  5. Now you will take the last cut piece of dough and place it over the back end of the braid. By doing this you will keep the mixed ingredients inside of the braid (Image 7)

    You have an oven by Frigidaire ! The very brand that gave the name "frigo" that we still use in France instead of "refrigerateur". nice recipe by the way.

    You should start the braid the other direction and it will hide the loose ends. Also egg wash it before putting in oven
