Chicken Cordon Bleu Braid

This Chicken Cordon Bleu Braid is an easy weeknight comfort food meal using just 7 ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 4 wedges of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss cheese, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 12 oz cooked boneless skinless chicken breast, shredded or chopped
  • 1 (13.8 oz) can Pillsbury Pizza Crust dough
  • 3 oz sliced 2% Swiss cheese
  • 4 oz thinly sliced deli ham, I used Hillshire Farm Deli Select Ultra Thin Brown Sugar Ham
  • 1 tablespoon light butter, melted (I use Land O’Lakes)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place the chopped cheese wedges in a microwaveable mixing bowl and microwave on high for 1 ½ minutes to soften. Add the mustard and shredded/chopped chicken and stir/mash together with a fork until the cheese and mustard coat the chicken. Set aside.
  • Unroll the pizza dough onto a piece of parchment paper on top of a cutting board and roll the dough to be 10”x14.” Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, make cuts up one of the longer sides of the dough, about 1 inch apart and about 3 inches long (into the center). Mirror those cuts on the opposite long side of the dough.
  • Place the Swiss cheese slices down the center of the pizza dough, in a row with the cuts on either side. Add the ham slices on top of the cheese slices. Spread the chicken mixture down the center, on top of the ham. Starting at one end, fold a strip of the sliced dough on the side diagonally over the center ingredients. Fold the strip across from it over that strip in a criss-cross and repeat, alternating sides, until the strips of dough are covering the center in a braided pattern. Brush the top of the braid with the melted butter.
  • Transfer the parchment paper with the braid onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the dough is golden. Slice into 12 equal pieces and serve (a serving is 2 pieces).
