Chicken and Asparagus Crepes

I made these for dinner tonight. My husband and I loved them. My three year old ate them very well. My 5 year old said he "didn't like the sauce on the inside of the pancakes" (it was cream of mushroom soup!) Go figure. I got the recipe from foodnetwork.com and Paula Deen.


2 tablespoons butter
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/8 cup dry sherry (I used water)
1/4 cup shredded fontina cheese (I used cheddar & swiss)
1 cup chopped cooked chicken
8 asparagus spears, steamed until crisp-tender
Savory Crepes, recipe follows
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking dish.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add cream of mushroom soup and onion and cook for 2 minutes, Stir in sherry, fontina cheese and chicken. Cook until cheese is melted.
Spoon 1/4 cup chicken mixture down center 1/3 of each crepe. Place 2 asparagus spears over chicken mixture. Fold edges of crepe over filling, and place, seam side up, in prepared baking dish. Sprinkle 1/2 cup Swiss cheese over crepes. Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crepes are hot.

Savory Crepes Ingredients:
3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoons butter, melted


In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt. In another medium bowl, whisk together milk, egg, egg yolk, and butter. Gradually add flour mixture to milk mixture, whisking until smooth.
Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spoon 2 1/2 tablespoons of batter into skillet; cook for 30 to 45 seconds. Loosen crepe with a spatula, and carefully turn over. Cook for 30 to 45 seconds; transfer to plate. Repeat procedure with remaining batter, stacking crepes on a plate.
Yield: 4 servings
