This Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Stromboli recipe could easily be adapted to ingredients already in your fridge and pantry.
However the star ingredient and what brings it all together is the puff pastry sheet. I recommend keeping a box in your freezer for just such an occasion.
I combined steamed broccoli & carrots, cooked chicken, and sautéed onion with cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese. Simply season to taste and you’re ready build your Stromboli.
Puff pastry is folded in thirds, making a great template for this crisscrossed braided method. Simply cut strips into the two outer thirds, leaving the middle uncut. Place a generous amount of the filling down the center, then overlap with the outer pastry strips.
Brush the top of the Stromboli with a beaten egg, then bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
We devoured our Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Stromboli declaring it dinner. However I can definitely see this as a great Game Day snack with endless filling options. I’m already envisioning a Thanksgiving Leftovers Stromboli. You might also like our Sausage, Peppers & Caramelized Onion Stromboli. Have fun with it and let me know how you fill yours.
