Chicken and Mushroom Crepes #FoodieExtravaganza


    May's Foodie Extravaganza theme is mushroom.  I always look forward to making something to share to fit the theme, but it is always SO hard for me to decide what to make.  I love mushrooms, so you would think it would be easy.  A couple of my favorites are on the blog already.  MiMi's Mushroom Flatbread gets requested frequently, but it has already been posted.  These Garlic Grilled Mushroom Skewers were amazing, but they are already up as well.  Cori's Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are the first thing to go when she brings them to a party, but we already shared that one too.  



    Then it hit me. Crepes!  Chicken and mushroom stuffed crepes are delicious.  They sound fancy, but really aren't hard to make.  It would be perfect and a little bit different.  So, I went to work making crepes.  Once they were done, I was committed.  So, I called MiMi and Pops and invited them over for lunch.  This recipe makes a LOT and we were going to need reinforcements!   


    After sauteing the mushrooms in batches, you mix them in with shredded chicken and some bechamel.  Adjust your salt and pepper and get to rolling. 


     See, it makes a lot!  You can make the crepes a day or two ahead of time even and do this part the afternoon of your dinner party.  Then all you have to do is bake them off when your guests are ready to eat.  It is a perfect dinner party food! 


     Smother them with some more bechamel and pop them into the oven.  They will come out a little crispy on the edges, warm and gooey in the middle.  Delicious if you ask me!



Chicken and Mushroom Stuffed Crepes

Ingredients:

2 T butter
1 lb mushrooms, sliced (I used button, but you can use your favorite)
2-3 cups poached chicken, shredded
salt and pepper

1 recipe crepes

  1. In a large saucepan, melt 1/4 of the butter.  Add about 1/4 of the mushrooms and brown.  Remove from pan and continue browning the mushrooms in batches until they have all been browned.
  2. Stir the mushrooms, chicken and about 1/3 of the lemon rosemary bechamel together.  Adjust your salt and pepper to your liking.
  3. Preheat the oven to 450 F and spray your baking dishes. I used one 9x13" pan and one 8x8" pan.
  4. Take a crepe and arrange some filling down the middle. Roll the crepe around the filling and place seam side down in prepared dish.  Repeat until crepes and filling are gone.
  5. Spoon remaining bechamel over the stuffed crepes.
  6. Bake at 450 F for about 20 minutes.  The bechamel should be bubbly and the filling hot all the way through.
  7. Enjoy!

    1. Bechamel is a cream sauce. A simple roux and milk usually. I added a little bit of lemon juice and some rosemary for this recipe!
