Salty crepes might even be better than sweet ones!

Ingredients (4 people) :

  • 200 grams of cream cheese
  • 2 chicken fillets
  • 2 tbsp of mustard
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons of chopped parsley
  • A bit of olive oil
  • salt
  • fresh cut pepper

For the Crepes

  • 250 ml of fresh milk
  • 125 grams of flour
  • 2 small eggs
  • bit of salt
  • fresh cut pepper

Instructions :

  1. In a bowl stir the four, the eggs and add a bit of salt and fresh cut pepper. Pour the milk slowly until the crepe mixture is homogenous. 
  2. Heat a pan of 30 cm and spread it with some oil or butter. Pour 1 tbsp of the mixture and move the pan so that the mixture is spread all over the bottom of the pan. Let the crepe cook in low heat for a few minutes, when it takes a colour you twist it and do the same from the other side. Follow the same procedure for the rest of the crepes until the mixture is over, by adding a bit of oil or butter before cooking each crepe. Keep them warm by placing the one on top of the other.
  3. Chop the chicken in small pieces and stir it in a bowl with the mustard, the onion, the olive oil, the salt and the pepper and then sauté in the pan in high heat.
  4. When it’s ready, spread cream cheese in each crepe and fill them with the chicken, which you had left in room temperature for a while and sprinkled with the chopped parsley.
