Chicken Cordon Bleu Crepes

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

    7 servings

Ingredients

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

Directions

  • In a small bowl, whisk the flour, eggs and milk until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 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.
  • Sprinkle the chicken, ham and cheese over crepes. Roll up tightly. Place seam side down in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
  • 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.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and heated through. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with remaining sauce.

    I think the next time I make this dish I will use tortillas.

    Fun to make...not as yummy as I expected. I will make again just to make certain this cook was not the problem.

    I made half this recipe for my husband and I. It is a great weeknight dinner. Quite light and easy to make. I used rotisserie chicken and deli sliced ham (packaged). The filling or sauce could use some spice. I'm not sure what, maybe a little cayenne. Half the recipe made exactly 7 crepes = 3.5 servings.
