If you follow the blog, you know one of my favorite flavor combinations is cheese, bacon and Ranch. We refer to this combination as "crack" because it is SO delicious and SO addictive! This "Cracked Out" Chicken Braid is no different. We actually ate this twice in one week! We couldn't get enough of this braid!
Chicken Legs especially loved this. I knew he would love it. He loves all of the "crack" recipes. I mean what's not to love? Chicken, bacon, cheese and Ranch? YUM! It is even more delicious because it is all wrapped in a crescent roll. Isn't everything better wrapped up in a delicious crescent roll? If you are worried about fat and calories, you can definitely use 2% cheese, turkey bacon and reduced-fat crescent rolls. I haven't found a reduced fat Ranch dressing that I like. If you have one that you like, let me know!
"Cracked Out" Chicken Braid
- 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls (or Recipe Creations Seamless Crescent Rolls)
- 1 cup cooked, chopped chicken
- 1/3 cup cooked, chopped bacon (turkey bacon)
- 2/3 cup cheddar cheese, grated
- 1/3 cup prepared Ranch dressing
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll out crescent rolls vertically on baking stone, do not separate and seal perforations.
Mix chicken, cheese, bacon and Ranch. Spread chicken mixture down center of crescent rolls.
Cut 10 strips on each side of the dough. To braid, lift strips of dough across mixture to meet in center, twisting each strip on turn. Continue alternating strips to form a braid.
Bake for 17-20 minutes - until lightly browned.
