Beale Street Chicken Braid

You can get this recipe here.

1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, thinly sliced
1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 (13.8-oz.) can Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
4 (1-oz.) slices provolone cheese, each cut into quarters
1 cup refrigerated honey hickory barbecue sauce with shredded chicken (from 18-oz. container)
4 oz. marbled mild Cheddar and white Cheddar cheese blend, cut into 12 slices
1 egg white, beaten

Heat oven to 425°F.

Spray large cookie sheet and 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add apple and onion to skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until apple is tender and onion is translucent. Stir in brown sugar. Cook and stir an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Unroll dough; place on sprayed cookie sheet. Starting at center, press out dough into 15×10-inch rectangle. Place provolone cheese slices in 5-inch-wide strip down center of dough. Spoon barbecue sauce with shredded chicken over cheese. Layer apple-onion mixture over chicken. Arrange Cheddar cheese blend slices evenly over apple-onion mixture.
With scissors or sharp knife, make cuts 1 inch apart on long sides of dough rectangle to within 1/2 inch of filling. Alternately cross strips diagonally over filling; turn ends under and press to seal. Brush beaten egg white over top.
Bake at 425°F. for 11 to 15 minutes or until crust is deep golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Remove from cookie sheet; cut into crosswise slices.

  1. Delicious option definitely, I liked the combination of ingredients. Can’t wait for baking this in order i can taste it bymyself. This receipe would be good for snack, just when you feel hungry.

  2. I finally tried this one. I couldn’t find the shredded chicken, so I settled for the pork one (still the honey hickory flavor).
    Also, I forgot to buy a sweet onion and didn’t want to risk putting a yellow onion in. So I substituted another apple.
    I found it to be pretty darn delicious. All you taste really is that bbq sauce, but I love the combination of all the textures.

  3. I’m glad you liked it! I remember being pretty unhappy with it as I made it (almost exactly like the recipe). It was just too soggy all around. 🙁 Maybe I’ll revisit it sometime, I felt like it had so much potential.
