Directions Step-By-Step

1
First, combine 2 tbsp lemon juice, green onions, cornstarch, lemon rind and salt in a medium bowl; stir with a wire whisk until blended. Add chicken; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
2
Meanwhile, make the crêpes - Combine all ingredients in electric blender, cover and process until smooth. Coat an 8-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray, place over medium heat. Pour about ¼ cup of batter into pan; quickly tilt pan in all directions so batter covers pan with a thin film. Cook about 1 ½ minutes on each side. (Crêpe should easily be lifted to flip and remove when done cooking). Place crêpe on wax paper and let cool. Repeat process until all batter is used.

Next, heat 1 tbsp oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken mixture; sauté 4 minutes or until chicken is done. Spoon mixture into bowl, sprinkle with remaining lemon juice and pepper and set aside.
4
Heat remaining oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and mushrooms and sauté 2 minutes. Add spinach and garlic, continue to cook 2 more minutes, or until spinach begins to wilt; add chicken to mixture.
5
Stir in sour cream and mayonnaise.
Spoon chicken mixture into center of each crêpe; gently roll closed. Serve.
