Savory Chicken Vegetable Strudel

I have sometimes used oregano instead of dill weed. Robin likes to put hot sauce on it. I haven't tried that yet.
Savory Chicken Vegetable Strudel

2 c. cooked, cubed chicken
½ c. shredded carrots
½ c. finely chopped fresh broccoli
1/3 c. finely chopped sweet red pepper
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
½ c. mayonnaise
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ t. dill weed
¼ t. salt
¼ t. pepper
2 tubes (8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 egg white, beaten
2 T. slivered almonds

Preheat oven to 375ยบ. In a bowl, combine first 10 ingredients; mix well. Unroll crescent dough and place in a greased 15x10-inch baking pan; press seams and perforations together, forming a rectangle (dough will hang over edges of pan). Spread filling lengthwise down the center of dough. On each long side, cut 1½-inch wide strips 3½-inches into center. Starting at one end, alternate strips, twisting twice and layering at an angle across filling. Seal ends. Brush dough with egg white; sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into slices; serve warm.

  2. Wow! That's pretty cool. Do you know how well a firm tofu would hold up in place of the chicken?

  3. Tara, I've eaten tofu, but never cooked with it so I have no idea how well it would work here. Sorry.

  4. This looks really good. I've never tried something like this before.

    I'll throw in my two-cents about the tofu - if you press the liquid out of it really well, first, so it's dry (take it out of its packaging, put it on a towel, and let it stand for a period of time (as long as it takes to prep everything else, 15-30 minutes maybe) with a weighted plate on top of it), it would probably work out okay.

  5. Thanks for the tips! We eat a lot of tofu, but I've never been brave enough to try it in a casserole or a strudel (I usually use seitan or TVP). I will try it sometime and let you know how it turns out. (:
