Chicken Cordon Bleu Crepes Recipe

Chicken Cordon Bleu Crepes Recipe

I came up with these crepes one day as a way to use up leftover chicken and ham. It's an elegant dish that only looks like you fussed. —Susan Kemmerer, Telford, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min. YIELD:7 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped cooked chicken
  • 2/3 cup chopped fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fully cooked ham
  • Minced fresh parsley

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, whisk the flour, eggs and milk until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. Heat a lightly greased 7-in. skillet. Pour about 2 tablespoons batter 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 plate. Repeat with remaining batter, adding oil to the skillet as needed. Place waxed paper between crepes.
  • 3. Sprinkle the chicken, ham and cheese over crepes. Roll up tightly. Place seam side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  • 4. For sauce, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour and bouillon until blended. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Remove from the heat. Stir in cheese and ham until cheese is melted. Pour 2/3 cup sauce over crepes.
  • 5. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and heated through. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with remaining sauce. Yield: 7 servings.
