When I organized food and nutrition training for our county 4-H’ers, we had cooking demonstrations representing different countries. We chose crepes for France, and everyone really loved them with this chicken broccoli filling.

Prep: 40 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING:
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) frozen broccoli spears, cooked and drained
  • 2-1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken

Directions

In a small bowl, beat the milk, eggs and butter. Combine flour and salt; add to egg mixture and beat until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet. Stir batter; pour 1/4 cup into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in broth and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; stir in 2 cups of cheese. Cook and stir for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream until smooth.
Place four broccoli spears and 1/3 cup of chicken down the center of each crepe; top with 1/3 cup cheese sauce. Roll up and place seam side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Pour remaining cheese sauce over crepes; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 8 crepes.

"I substituted whole wheat flour in crepes and used low fat dairy in everything to bring down the fat content. Just as yummy!"

"I made these divine crepes twice before I was able to view the nutritional facts. Egads! I may never make them again, but it won't be because I don't want to!"
