Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Crepes

    This was my first recipe from the Essential Dinner Tonight cookbook, even though I had already tore it out of the original magazine. Overall, an A rating....but the crepes just completely disintegrated on impact. In the photo we noticed that at least 4 crepes were used... Now we know why. My 15 year old went for seconds and that's why I consider this a hit. I would have liked a thicker sauce and will experiment with reducing the chicken broth a little more or adding a little Dijon mustard.

    I'm sad this doesn't have more and better reviews, I love this dish. I gave up on the crepes after the first time, they're not worth the trouble and they do fall apart. But the rest is fantastic - creamy, savory, full of flavour. I serve it over rice - usually the easy frozen brown or red blend from Trader Joe's. For special occasions I always make canapés with smoked salmon and dill creme fraiche, so this is a standby in our house to use up the extra creme fraiche. I serve it for company all the time and always get requests for the recipe.

    I agree with the previous user in that I am surprised there aren't more reviews for this recipe! My husband and I enjoyed these. Couldn't find creme fraiche (and didn't feel like making it) so I used heavy cream instead. Very flavorful and easy to prepare. Will definitely make again.
