Moreover, the best thing about the recipe that you can make stuffed crepes ahead of time, and then before serving you simply need to bake them for 10 minutes in the oven with a cheesy crust. It is also a perfect recipe to make when you have leftover meat (using turkey after Thanksgiving can be a win-win situation).

This recipe was inspired by Chicken Florentine Crepes dish but when I was making them for the first time, I had to make some changes and, as a result, this recipe was born. I hope that you will appreciate it as much as my family did.

Ingredients for Chicken Florentine Crepes

  • 2 eggs;
  • 1 Metric cup all-purpose flour;
  • 125 ml water;
  • 125 ml milk;
  • a pinch of salt;
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil.

Savory Crepe Filling Ingredients:

  • 200 g fresh spinach;
  • 1 chicken breast;
  • 3 garlic cloves;
  • 200 ml half-and-half;
  • Dried herbs mix;

How to make crepes with chicken spinach filling at home:

  • For crepes, beat in one egg into a deep bowl, season with a pinch of salt. Whisk nicely using a whisk or a mixer. Pour milk and water, whisk once again. Sift the flour to the mixture and give the batter the last whisk. Make sure to get rid of all the lumps. The fluid should be smooth for the best result. Let the batter rest for 15-20 minutes before making crepes.

Get the batter ready

  • Lightly grease a non-stick pan and let it heat on medium setting of the stove. Take a full ladle of batter and evenly distribute it over the surface of the pan by swirling motions. Cook on each side until golden.

Cook crepes using all the batter

  • Make crepes by using all the batter. Stack them on the flat plate.

  • For the filling, cut chicken breast into small pieces. Cook them in oil on high heat until cooked through. Add salt only at the end of the process, so that chicken meat stays juicy. Here you can also add some extra seasoning, for example, the mix of your favorite dried herbs.

Cook chicken breast in the skillet on the stove

  • While chicken is cooking on the stove, combine half-and-half cream, grated light cheese, and crushed garlic cloves in a deep bowl. Add marjoram to the mix and nicely whisk the mixture.

  • Add spinach to the skillet with the chicken and cook for a minute constantly stirring the mixture. Pour the creamy sauce into the skillet.
