Through my blog hoping, I have stumbled onto a blog called Comfy in the Kitchen which is written by Janelle. Janelle has all kinds of simple, easy and fast recipes. I have tried several so far, but actually took pictures this time because I was going to make something I have never attempted to do.
(Go here for Janelle's recipe)
These were SO easy and I think a caveman could do it!
For making the Crepes you need Milk, Eggs, Vanilla Extract, Sugar, Flour and Water
Then you mix with an electric mixer and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
This is what you drink while waiting that hour...Ice Coffee. Go here for recipe from the Pioneer Woman.
You would then pour batter into a measuring cup for ease of pouring and then place just enough batter to cover the bottom of a small omelet pan. (You don't want it too thin.) If you notice, the edges begin to cook first and get firm looking. Go ahead and flip them over. Cook these on med to low heat so they don't burn.
You'll need either Chicken Tenders or you can cut up chicken breasts like we did. Cut into bite size pieces. I have been turned back onto using cast iron pans, just because it cuts cooking time and the clean up is SO much easier.
This is the White Sauce you'll pour over the crepes and chicken. I used a full cup on each dish.
Here is where you would add the cheese to the top. I used 4 Blend Mexican Cheese. Janelle uses Swiss Cheese on hers. After adding the cheese place in oven on a cookie sheet that has edges so the don't roll all over when you take them out and broil on low until the tops is golden brown.
This is what the finished product looked like. It was W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L!!!
Now for the REAL options........
TWO Thumbs up from each kid!!!!
It was a hit. Dylan was trying to tell me he liked it with that BIG OLE' goofy smile and a mouth full of food. He doesn't even look like that. Funny!
**Note: I had to triple the batch because I have a small village of starving boys. Trust me their NOT starving even though they'd be sure to tell you otherwise! We did save about 6 crepes for dessert and added Ice Cream with Comstock Cherries and Whipped Cream on top. I gained 2 pounds, just looking at it. :)
