WEIGHT Watchers CROISSANT LOAF
Philly Croissant Loaf should be the first thing you make. It’s simple and can be in the oven in under 10 minutes. I was inspired by my chicken parmesan croissant loaf but just gave this one a new flavor. It’s perfect for tailgating, summer BBQs, or a poolside snack if you need one.
It’s easy and very flavorful.
Sometimes easy recipes are bland or severely lacking in flavor. But not this philly croissant loaf. It’s delicious and highly flavored.
Philly Croissant Loaf is healthy.
It’s a great alternative if you’re craving the classic sub sandwich, but don’t want to overload your day with calories. One serving is just 208 calories!
Even with the delicious cheese added, it’s low in fat.
One serving of this Philly croissant loaf is only 10 grams of fat. A typical Philly cheese steak sandwich will cost you 40 grams of fat or more! There’s no reason to spend your calories that way with you have this healthy alternative.

⭐Preheat the oven to 375F, and line a baking sheet with some parchment paper. Lightly spray it with nonstick cooking spray.

⭐Lay out the crescent roll dough on the cookie sheet and pinch together any open seems.
⭐Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut lines all the way down (even on each side) so you can braid the loaf, leaving the middle uncut for your filling (see picture above).

⭐Break the cheese slices in half and lay them on top of the chicken mixture.
⭐Then, using the cut sides, braid the bread to seal it closed. Be sure to seal any open seems. Brush the egg wash on the bread.
