With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Crepes and Chicken with Rosemary

Crepes and Chicken with Rosemary

I usually think of dessert when using crepes but thought I would do something a little different with leftover chicken and make a savory filling. 
If you prefer extra gravy, think about doubling the ingredients for the filling. I don't think you would need to double the chicken, just the other ingredients.  
Chicken Crepes with Rosemary
adapted from allrecipes.com
For the crepes:
(I got 8 crepes from this recipe)

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, water, salt and butter; add flour and stir until smooth.

Heat non-stick pan over medium high heat. (I didn't need to, but you could spray the pan for the first crepe to prevent sticking) Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side.

Filling for Crepes

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup chicken broth (I used water and a chicken bouillon cube)
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1/8 teaspoon finely chopped fresh Rosemary
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cup diced cooked chicken
salt to taste (not needed if using the bouillon cube)
2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion, and cook 2 minutes. Stir in flour until blended. Slowly whisk in 1/2 cup milk, whisking constantly until smooth. Mix in broth, wine, and Rosemary; stir over medium-low heat until thickened (about 4 minutes).

In a small bowl, gradually stir 3 tablespoons of the hot milk mixture into the egg yolk; then pour egg mixture into sauce, whisking briskly. Cook 1 minute more, then remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, mix together half of the sauce with the chicken. Season with salt to taste.

Fill each crepe with chicken mixture. Roll crepes, and place seam-side down in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Thin the remaining sauce with the 2 tablespoons of milk, and pour over crepes.
Bake in a preheated oven 20 minutes, or until sauce begins to bubble.

I love crepes, and this looks so good for dinner, wish I was at your house tonight! The wedding below, is so sweet too! :D

Mildred said...

This sounds so very good - like comfort food! I'll bet you grow rosemary in your herb garden.

I cannot imagine how delightful these must taste...particularly if someone ELSE would make them! I tend to send meals like this up in a blaze of glory, but I have no shortage of blind hope that one of these days I'll pull it off. This recipe sounds and looks like it would be worth the effort.

This looks great. We sometimes go to a little crepe place near work and have wonderful buckwheat crepes with mushrooms and cheese.

I love savory crepes, almost better than sweet ones! I have fond memories of a crepe restaurant from my childhood. These look so delicious. What a great idea for leftover chicken.

Sounds yummy.

I love savory crepes! When I was a child I was allowed to pick what restaurant I wanted to eat my birthday dinner in and I always chose a crepe restaurant.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I recently bought a new crepe pan to make manicotti shells , but this recipe may come first! It sounds delightful!

Marysol said...

Perfect way to dress up leftover chicken!
Savory crepes are a favorite here, almost as much as dessert crepes.
Sometimes, I'll eat them plain, dusted with confectioner's sugar.

Cindy said...

Your crepes look wonderful, I have never made them before. This looks like a great recipe, so maybe I will try it.
I copied the recipe a few posts away, for the butter cake. Now that looked and sounded amazing!!!
Hugs, Cindy
