Dinner for one...

I love the chicken crepes at ihop or mimi's cafe, they are fabulous! So I went on a quest to find the perfect chicken crepe recipe...I combined a few of them to make my life easy..so here is my take on the perfect chicken crepe dinner recipe. Fast and fun and so hearty and delicious! A go to recipe for sure! One of my favorites to make when charlie is not home, he hates mushrooms and spinach but really this is so good, he does not know what he is missing!!

1 package chicken tenderloins, chopped into 1 inch pieces
3 cloves garlic minced
2 tblsp butter
2 tblsp olive oil
1 cup chopped small mushrooms

1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup milk (I may try cream next time?)
4 oz sharp cheddar cheese-grated
4 oz swiss cheese-grated
1/2 bag fresh spinach chopped small
lots of salt and pepper

Brown your chicken, garlic, mushrooms, in a large non stick pan with the butter and oil..after nice and brown but only about 5-10 minutes..add in soup, milk, cheeses, spinach and s&p. Bring to a boil then cover and put on med/low to simmer and cook while you make the crepes.

CREPES:
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
4 eggs

Blend well, I used my blender, then heat a skillet with rounded bottom, non stick type, spray it anyway with pam...once heated pour in about 1/8 cup of batter, swirl around until bottom of pan is covered..let cook until bottom of crepe is browned, never flip!! Just slide crepe out onto plate with paper towel, cover with another paper towel and keep making crepes until you are done.

Once you are ready to eat..put a crepe on a plate and add a few spoonfuls of chicken mix, roll and add another crepe, fill and roll..then top with more chicken mix and serve! Yummy!!
This is one of those fancy dishes your guests will think you slaved all day in the kitchen for, but it is so easy a monkey can make it!! hahahaha!
Bon Appetit!

This is so funny 'cause Carla and I are going to the Crepe Cafe tomorrow for my birthday! When we lived in Pittsburgh, I made all kinds of crepes all of the time - I will have to see if I still have my Crepe Cookbook 'cause in the 70's, we didn't have the computer from where to get recipes!

Glad you enjoyed your dinner and these are so much less fattening than bread!
