Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Braid

Put a new twist on Chicken Broccoli Alfredo with this Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Crescent Braid.

Between hockey, school, and other various school activities, our days have been booked solid lately. Add in a holiday, and things become even more hectic. This past week I’ve been trying to get the house ready for Thanksgiving while packing for two different trips.

We often have a can of biscuits or crescents in our fridge that are used to make a variety of recipes. The inside of a Pillsbury can is bursting with possibilities. We rarely serve them as is, and often mix them with a number of other ingredients to make an appetizer or meals. One of my favorite go-to recipes, is our Taco Ring recipe which is perfect for entertaining as well as the Garlic Parmesan Pizza Bites. We also enjoy making Crescent braids filled with chicken or beef. We slice them thin, and serve them as an appetizer.
