How to Make Creamy chicken, spinach & mushroom Crepes

Step-by-Step

  1. First, in a bowl, combine 2 tbsp lemon juice, green onions, cornstarch, lemon rind and salt in a medium bowl; stir with a wire whisk until blended.
  2. Add chicken; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. For crêpes -
    Combine all ingredients in electric blender, cover and process until smooth.
  4. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray.
  5. Pour about ¼ cup of batter into heated pan; quickly tilt pan in all directions so batter covers pan with a thin circular film.
  6. Cook about 1 ½ minutes on each side. (Crêpe should easily be lifted with a spatula to flip and remove when done cooking).
  7. Place crêpe on wax paper and let cool.
  8. Repeat process until all batter is used.
  9. Filling -
    Combine honey and yogurt together, and set aside.
  10. 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.
  11. Spoon mixture into a bowl, sprinkle with remaining lemon juice, salt and pepper, and set aside.
  12. 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.
  13. Add chicken to mixture.
  14. Stir in yogurt mixture, combine well.
  15. Remove from heat.
    Spoon chicken mixture into center of each crêpe; gently roll closed.
    Serve and enjoy!
