Chicken Crepes

This week I’ve had a cold, so I stayed in, except for a couple of  little walks and picking up T.J. from school. By Friday, I realized I hadn’t worn makeup for days or worn a cute outfit so I decided I’d have a delicious dinner ready for T.J. when he got home and be dressed up… to show him that his wife is still in there!

I’m trying to use ingredients we have on hand right now and not but too many groceries, so I decided I would make chicken crepes. I don’t have any pictures, but I will tell you they were delicious and it made enough for leftovers which have been great.

First, while I thawed about eight chicken tenderloins, I made the crepe batter. I let that sit in the fridge while I cooked the chicken on the stovetop and then cut it into bite-sized pieces. Next, I made a roux. I actually made half of what the recipe called for and it was still WAY too much. I don’t like white sauce too much, plus it’s really fattening. So, I’m moderating the recipe a bit so next time I remember to make just a little bit. Then I made the crepes, folded them and lined them in a bottom of a baking dish, layering the cooked chicken, some white sauce, and two crepes to cover them on top. Sprinkle it with cheese (just a tinnnny bit of shredded cheese), and broil until the top is kind of crispy.

Next time I make it, I’m going to add some vegetables like tomatoes and mushrooms, but I didn’t have any fresh on hand. So, anyways… it turned out great and T.J. was very impressed that I had done my makeup and hair! But the sad thing about all of it was that at the end of the night, I was so tired/sick with the cold I didn’t feel like going on our date. Oh well!
