Ingredients

1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1
cup shredded oven-roasted chicken
1/4
cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/4
cup shredded Cheddar cheese (1 oz)
1
tablespoon mayonnaise
1
teaspoon curry powder
1
egg yolk, beaten
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Place silicone baking mat on cookie sheet with sides or line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2 On baking mat, unroll dough into 1 large rectangle; press perforations and edges to seal.
  • 3 In medium bowl, mix chicken, bell pepper, cheese, mayonnaise and curry powder. Spoon chicken mixture lengthwise down center of dough. Using sharp knife, cut 1-inch-wide strips of dough on both sides of chicken mixture. Bring dough strips up over chicken mixture, crisscrossing to form braid.
  • 4 Using pastry brush, lightly brush egg yolk over top of dough.
  • 5 Bake about 20 minutes or until top is light golden brown.
