With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Braided Chicken Almondine

Braided Chicken Almondine

This post is for our daughter, Jill.
A recipe she grew up with and now often makes when having friends over because it is tasty, easy and pretty to serve. It is her go-to recipe (when she can find it)
Now she won't have to pay her dad a dollar for calling (again) for the recipe.
That is what he charges for repeatedly reading a recipe.
Come to think of it, he has never seen one penny of this tab.
Braided Chicken Almandine
(the spelling on the original  Pillsbury recipe)

Heat oven to 350
1 1/2 cups chopped, cooked chicken
3/4 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup chopped, slivered almonds
1Tbl Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
1 egg, beaten (if multiple recipes are made, 1 egg is still enough)
2 Tbl slivered almonds
(Because we like peas, I toss some in as well.  About 1/2 cup)

In large bowl, combine filling ingredients. Separate dough into 2 long rectangles. Place on ungreased cookie sheet with long sides overlapping 1/2”. Firmly press perforations and edges to seal. Press to form 14x9 rectangle. Spoon chicken mixture in 3” strip lengthwise down center of dough. Cut 1” strips of dough from chicken to edge. Fold strips of dough at an angle alternating sides. Brush with egg, sprinkle with almonds.

Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown
8 servings

That's hilarious about the dollar and even more hilarious that he never sees any of the money!

When i looked at the picture of this I thought, i can't do pastry I am not going to be able to do this but then when i saw it was crescent roll dough I changed my mind. the picture looks like there might be peas in it but i did not see in recipe. This looks wonderful, I would love to try it for myself

This. Looks. Lovely!
It sounds easy too...I'm going to try this one!!

I bet Jill has the recipe written down...she just likes to here her dad read it to her! :)

Have a great day Lorraine...and thanks for sharing this with us.

Leann said...

Love this sounds fairly easy! I was just thinking about making your chicken riggies recipe next week. I think that there may be a substitution:)

Hope that all is well!

That is sweet about the dollar. This reminds me of a Pampered Chef recipe my friend made one time, it was delicious. Pillsbury crescent dough makes everything delicious! xo

This sounds tasty and has a beautiful presentation! Peas, is that about a 1/2 cup? I'd ask your hubby but then I'd owe him $1 too:@)

Maple Lane said...

I think even I could make this. Like another person commented, usually I can't make anything with crust!

My mom had a life-long friend that was the world's worst about asking over and over for the same recipe. It kinda got to be funny to mother and me!!!

I giggled about Jill calling and the charge for the recipe! Too much fun! Great recipe!

I had a recipe that I gave to my sister, and thank goodness I gave it to her because I kept on losing it --- and calling her for the recipe! This looks like such a fun company recipe. I hope you don't mind if I pin it? Let me know if that is a problem. Joni

Susan said...

Oh, my, LDH. That sounds delectable. Thanks for sharing. Would like some right now and it's 11 p.m. Susan

podso said...

Maybe your daughter will pin this like I did and then always have it available! Thanks for a good looking recipe!

Hi Lorraine, I smiled when I read about the charge for the recipe. But if that was applied, I would have to pay thousands to my mom. Pity my mom and your husband are never going to see that money...ha ha. Thanks for sharing a yummy recipe.

What a fun story, Lorraine :)

This recipe not only looks beautiful but sounds delicious!

Robyn said...

Yep, this one is a keeper! Thank you so much for sharing this.. Im disabled with illness for many years so my energy levels are not all that well and my husband is also disabled so I am ALWAYS on the lookout for really good recipes that are also quick and this one if perfect. Thank you so much for sharing it with us :)

Looks delicious!

Ann said...

Your daughter better hope that your husband never tries to collect on that tab....lol That's too funny.
That really does look delicious.

Julie Harward said...

Hi there, thanks for your visit. You make everything look so easy! This looks divine! Love your sweet Ella off to the big K, she is so blessed to have such a wonderful grandma! :)

Debbie Petras said...

I love reading recipes with lots of photos. And this one certainly looks yummy and also easy; the best kind. Thanks for sharing and I promise not to call your dad. :)

Blessings and love,

Donna McMorrow said...

That looks delicious! I love that your daughter is running a tab on having Dad read her recipes. That's love.

Valerie said...

I hope you don't mind I pinned this one to Pinterest. It looks wonderful and I can't wait to try it.

Loved the photos of your grandchildren time. Oh how sweet they all look - so happy and full of life!
