Chicken Crepes Elegante

It sounds complicated, but it's not. My mom used to make this, and got the recipe from my grandma. Some of the directions I had to interpret. I also tried Cheddar, but it left it with a weird grainy texture, so I think American cheese would be best. I have no idea where this recipe came from, but it's something nice for date night if you don't have a ton of money, and want to stay home yet have something nice. Hope you like it!
