Step by step Savory Chicken Crepes recipe with photos of each step.
For a long long time, I had been playing with this recipe through testing. This dish was born when Alfredo sauce wedded French Crepe. I usually make these on lazy Sundays when you wish to spend less time in kitchen and yet have yummy weekend style food. And, on those days, I cook in the evening and can’t take photos in daylight. But this time, I managed to take photos, although a shabby photo to make cover for this post.
Nevertheless, the dish is delicious — full of flavors. The crepes are like crepes —- soft and yummy. (I can have it on their own or better with a sauce.) Filling has spices, herb and few green veggies to add more bite to the dish. We all love it!!!
- You can make crepes batter 24 hours ahead.
- You can also make chicken and white sauce a day ahead. So if you’re plan this as a side with a high protein main-course, you make these prep a day ahead and assemble the dish a little before guest will arrive.
- If you make this dish ahead, you can also re-heat in oven or microwave before serving.
- Finally, I used oven only to melt and broil my cheese. So, if you don’t have oven just melt cheese by heating in microwave oven.
- I prefer all green veggies for this dish but you may add mushroom, corns , olives or white sauce. Of course, you need to reduce other veggies and add your favorite once.
- Cheese is added only on the top but if want a really cheesy crepes, add cream cheese in filling as well.
