TT w/Linky: Quick & Tasty Chicken Taco Braid

Do you ever use Pillsbury dough to create an easy and quick week night meal?  I rarely do, but after watching  a show about the uses of Pillsbury dough on the Food Network channel Saturday morning I was completely motivated to try one of their recipes.
Enter:  Chicken Taco Braid, modified.

Cube three to four chicken breasts and add some taco seasoning.  The original recipe called for chili powder but I thought the chili powder would be a wee bit too hot for my kids.  Brown the chicken for a few minutes.

Add sliced onion and red bell pepper to the mix and cook for a few more minutes.

Roll the crescent dough out on to a baking sheet.  Add the chicken mixture to the center.  Add 1/4 cup of salsa on top and 1 cup of shredded cheese.  Slice each side of the dough in one inch intervals.

Alternate each strip to braid the dough on top of the mixture.  Brush on some egg wash.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

A really tasty dish.  The entire family loved it….even picky Paige.

Ingredients:
Pillsbury Crescent Roll
3-4 chicken breasts, cubed

1/2 of onion, sliced

Directions:
