Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Crepes: In a bowl, combine flour and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and melted butter. Whisk egg mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Strain mixture into a clean bowl.
  3. Heat a small non-stick skillet or crepe pan over medium heat. Brush pan with some oil.
  4. Pour approximately 1/4 cup batter into centre of pan, swirling pan to coat. Cook for about 1 minute or until bottom is a light golden colour. Flip and cook for 30 seconds. Transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining batter. (Make-ahead: Stack crepes between waxed paper, wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)
  5. Chicken and Garlic Filling: In a skillet, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter over medium high heat with garlic and thyme. Add chicken and cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until heated through. Stir in cream cheese until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and divide the chicken mixture into centre of each crepe and fold over. Place in shallow casserole dish, overlapping slightly. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter and drizzle over stuffed crepes.
  6. Place in preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until warmed through. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

I made these last night for my boyfriend, 3 year old daughter, and I. I used the garlic cream cheese filling. I did not have garlic and herb, just plain garlic, so I used some Herbes de Provence to season the chicken, and lowered the minced garlic to 1 clove, as my child might have turned her nose up at too much garlic. These crepes were creamy and smooth, very tasty. I may try adding some precooked spinach to the filling to make it more interesting but, as they are, these were delicious. Oh, I did not sprinkle the parsley, I just saw that :) I served them with a Mediterranean salad (lettuce, tomato, a little red pepper, and cucumber) and a balsamic vinaigrette. Good combination.

Despite the crepes being time consuming, this recipe was really simple and delicious. I made it for our annual Christmas Eve Brunch and these were a HUGE hit. I did not use rotisserie chicken, but boiled and shredded some chicken tenderloins I had in the freezer. My cream cheese was a different flavor from what the recipe calls for (still an herb blend) and I didn't have fresh parsley but the thyme had great flavor. I popped one batch in the refrigerator to bake later (approximately 20+ minutes to heat through). Excellent recipe that I will definitely make again.
