Chicken and Broccoli Braid

What you'll need:
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 cup fresh broccoli, chopped
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1 clove crushed garlic
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of mayo
2tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbs almonds (I use more because I love the crunch it gives it)
1/4 cup diced onion
2 cans of crescent rolls
1 egg white, beaten
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Toss together chicken, broccoli, red pepper, garlic, cheese,
mayo, dill, salt, onion, and garlic in large bowl.
Should look something like this....
(I could eat this by the spoonfuls)
Unroll crescent rolls and arrange flat on a baking sheet. 
Pinch together perforations to form a single layer of dough.

Cut 1 inch wide strips in towards the center starting on the long sides.
There should be a solid strip about 3-4 inches wide down the center,
with the cut strips forming a fringe down each side.
Spread mixture along the center.
Fold the side strips over the mixture, alternating strips from each side.
Pinch to seal.
Spread the egg white over the braid.
And bake for 25-30 minutes.
