How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper or tin foil.( I use a silicon mat.)
  • In a medium saucepan combine neufchatel and Swiss cheeses. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until smooth (about 5 minutes). Add the package of hidden Valley dressing Mix to the cheese; stir. Gently fold in the chopped broccoli and chicken. Remove from heat.
  • Lightly flour your work surface and roll puff pastry into a 15x10 inch rectangle. Transfer the rectangle to prepared cookie sheet.
  • Starting one inch from the bottom and ending one inch from the top of the pastry, make 2 inch cuts in 1 inch intervals. (If using silicon mat , cut with a scissor)on the long sides of the rectangle .
  • Place the filling down the center(uncut portion) of the pastry; leaving a one inch portion at the top and bootom. Fold the top and bottom pieces over the filling (this will hold the filling in the braid).
  • Starting at the bottom, pull pastry strips from each side towards the middle. The two strips should overlap and cross each other. Continue this pattern until you reach the end of the braid.
  • Brush the egg wash over the top and sides of the braid.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes until the braid becomes puffed and golden brown.
  • Slice horizontily and serve.

    Now you've gone and made me very, very homesick. There is no state fair ANYWHERE that can compare to the MN State Fair (I know it's changed a lot, but "back in the day" it was beyond compare...cheese curds, ice cold FREE milk, tom thumb donuts, funnell cakes, corn dogs made from scratch, cotton candy - you getting my drift...yes, I ate my way through the fair every year!) If this is a fair winner, it's got to be tops, because those are some gooooooooooood cooks that bring their treats to be judged there!
