Chicken (Or Turkey) Cheese Crepes

I love to change up holiday leftovers into different dishes so that my family and I don't get tired of them. This is another one of those dishes using leftovers.

This looks like a lot of steps, but it truly goes together quickly. I often times will just use purchased crepes that makes it even faster.
